"Thaddeus Russell sets out to rewrite American labor history in this ambitious and relentlessly revisionist book. This is by no means a conventional biography. Russell has little to say about Hoffa's private life and offers few insights into Hoffa's motivations.... Along the way, Russell offers a provocative, if not wholly convincing, reappraisal of American labor since the New Deal."Russell, Thaddeus is the author of 'Out of the Jungle Jimmy Hoffa and the Remaking of the American Working Class' with ISBN 9781592130276 and ISBN 1592130275.
