PRAISE FOR "STATE OF THE UNIONS" "Phil Dine tells a compelling tale-and he writes beautifully-of the decline, fall, and potential rebirth of a powerful labor movement in the U.S."-Mike Wallace, CBS News ""State of the Unions" is an excellent, inspiring, and very readable analysis of the current struggles and past triumphs of the American labor movement. Longtime respected labor reporter Phil Dine makes a compelling case that a much stronger labor movement in the years ahead is indispensable for restoring fairness for working families and reducing the widening income gap that is threatening the American dream for so many millions of our families."-Senator Edward M. Kennedy ""State of the Unions" provides a penetrating look at what's happened to American workers-and how labor unions have failed them. It's an important book on a subject that gets far too little attention."-Michael Isikoff, author of "Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War" "Phil Dine presents a compelling case for the critical role unions play in preserving the dignity of workers and the American way of life. "State of the Unions" is a must read for anyone concerned about the future of our country."-John J. Flynn, President, International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers ""State of the Unions"-with its keen observations and thoughtful conclusions-could be a primer for labor leaders and labor reporters. Except it's so well-written and entertaining that it beckons anyone who works for a living to bring it to the beach."-Linda Foley, President, Newspaper Guild-CWA, Vice President, Communications Workers of America "The facts are uncontestable. The conclusions often controversial. The challenges historic. Phil Dine offers a compelling and provocative look at labor's role in the political, social and economic marketplace."-The Honorable Tom Ridge "The author enters areas few media professionals have ever even this astonishing new book."-Bernard DeLury, Director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service under President George H.W. Bush
