"Loomis, a labor historian, offers clear narratives about the 10 strikes of the title, emphasizing the pivotal role of women in the labor movement. . . He also doesn't flinch when describing the less savory sides of the American labor movement." Publishers Weekly

"A brilliantly recounted American history through the prism of major labor struggles, with critically important lessons for those who seek a better future for working people and the world." Noam Chomsky 

"Loomis refuses to romanticize this period or the labor movement it produced. . . . What Loomis's book perhaps does best is remind us that the promise of the labor movement, despite its many failures and compromises, has always been to make everyday life more democratic." The New Republic

"A timely book. . . . We have to use these strikes to shore up the very power to strike. Only that will ensure strikes aren't relegated to the history books." In These Times

"[A History of America in Ten Strikes] provides an edifying look at the abuse of power in America that. . . is evocative of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States." Booklist

"Each chapter of this well-told saga could stand on its own. . . . Loomis delivers a jargon-free, clearly written history." Kirkus Review (starred review)
