A truly authoritative study of a “model American union” (IAM has long been known as one of the most ethical and efficient), based on complete access to the organization’s files. Beginning with an interpretive history to 1953, the book analyzes IAM’s formal and informal structure and its policies with regard to other unions, employers, public, and government, isolating dynamic features of the decision making process. It includes documented evidence of the difficulties and analyzes both sides of the many controversies IAM has faced.
