Newly updated: "An enjoyable introduction to American working-class history." ―The American Prospect Praised for its "impressive even-handedness",From the Folks Who Brought You the Weekendhas set the standard for viewing American history through the prism of working people (Publishers Weekly, starred review). From indentured servants and slaves in seventeenth-century Chesapeake to high-tech workers in contemporary Silicon Valley, the book "[puts] a human face on the people, places, events, and social conditions that have shaped the evolution of organized labor", enlivened by illustrations from the celebrated comics journalist Joe Sacco (Library Journal). Now, the authors have added a wealth of fresh analysis of labor’s role in American life, with new material on sex workers, disability issues, labor’s relation to the global justice movement and the immigrants’ rights movement, the 2005 split in the AFL-CIO and the movement civil wars that followed, and the crucial emergence of worker centers and their relationships to unions. With two entirely new chapters―one on global developments such as offshoring and a second on the 2016 election and unions’ relationships to Trump―this is an "extraordinarily fine addition to U.S. history [that] could become an evergreen… comparable to Howard Zinn’s award-winning A People’s History of the United States" (Publishers Weekly). "A marvelously informed, carefully crafted, far-ranging history of working people." ―Noam Chomsky

The Wolfpack The Millennial Mobsters Who Brought Chaos and the Cartels to the Canadian Underworld

The Wolfpack: The Millennial Mobsters Who Brought Chaos and the Cartels to the Canadian Underworld By Peter Edwards, Luis Najera
2022 | 304 Pages | ISBN: 0735275416 | EPUB | 11 MB
Award-winning Mexican journalist Luis Nájera and leading organized-crime author Peter Edwards reveal would-be successors to Vito Rizzuto’s criminal dominance: a motley assortment of millennial bikers, gangsters and Mafia whose bloody trail of murders and schemes gone wrong led to the arrival on Canada’s doorstep of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations–the drug cartels of Mexico.Following the death of Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto in 2013, a group of young criminals rose to fill the vacuum in power on his old turf. The newcomers were nothing like their rigorously codified predecessors. The impatient millennials leading this self-styled Wolfpack Alliance were organized-crime disruptors who grew up with technology at their fingertips in a socially networked criminal underworld. They’re part of Canada’s most ethnically diverse generation, and their organization was as inclusive as it was criminal. They shared an overwhelming sense of entitlement, with a self-assuredness that left them foolishly exposed to law enforcement, enemies and the force in global crime they were arrogant enough to think they could handle entering into business with. The dominant and most violent force in the global narcotics trade through the 2000s, Mexico’s Sinaloa and Los Zetas drug cartels, recognized the naivety of their eager new cocaine customers up north and invited themselves to Canada to take advantage.As in the business world, in times of chaos and collapsing orders, disruptors rule. But not for long. The Wolfpack is a must-read for any true-crime aficionados looking for insight into the organized criminal underworld of the 2020s.


Awakening How Gays and Lesbians Brought Marriage Equality to America

Nathaniel Frank, "Awakening: How Gays and Lesbians Brought Marriage Equality to America"
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0674737229 | PDF | pages: 457 | 26.7 mb
The right of same-sex couples to marry provoked decades of intense conflict before it was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015. Yet some of the most divisive contests shaping the quest for marriage equality occurred not on the culture-war front lines but within the ranks of LGBTQ advocates. Nathaniel Frank tells the dramatic story of how an idea that once seemed unfathomable―and for many gays and lesbians undesirable―became a legal and moral right in just half a century.


Roman Legends Brought to Life

English | 2022 | ISBN: 1399098527 | 234 pages | True PDF EPUB | 49.12 MB
The legends of early Rome are among the most memorable of any in the world. They are also highly instructive. They taught generations of Romans about duty and obedience. Duty and obedience might not seem to amount to much these days, but it was precisely these virtues that made Rome great. The legends are not, however, merely self-congratulatory and they are rarely simple exercises in nationalist propaganda. On the contrary, many reveal their ancestors’ dark side, which they expose unflinchingly.
As in the case of Greek mythology, there is no authorized version of any Roman legend. The legends survived because they reminded the Romans who they were, what modest beginnings they came from, how on many occasions their city nearly imploded, and what type of men and women shaped their story.
