Revolution within the Revolution
Stanford University Press

This chapter demonstrates how workers won their revolution through an analysis of the changes in wages, hours, and benefits, and also control over hiring, firing, and discipline. It also analyzes the limits to the workers' victory, rooted in its focus on law and trade unions, both of which required a strong state. A revolution born of a collapsing state ended up by creating a new one, with all its attendant ambiguities.
