''Stephanie Luce gives us an informed and wise assessment of the crucial role of unions in resisting the forces unleashed by neoliberal capitalism. She deals unblinkingly with the opposition that unions confront today and with their own internal weaknesses as well. Yet she concludes that rolling back an unbridled capitalism cannot be accomplished without a revived and innovative labor movement. A sobering yet refreshing antidote, and one that inspires both hope and hard work.''

''Stephanie Luce's "Labor Movements" is must read book for those who are interested in workers' rights, unionization and the future of labor movements. Luce provides a critical review on neo-liberal gobalization, global financial crisis, illusion of economic growth, and assess the effect on the role of unions and workers' struggles. By debunking the myth of mobile and global capitalism, the book calls for changes on the existing system and new ways of workers' emancipation worldwide.''
