The Newfoundland Trawlermen's Strike, 1974-75
David Macdonald
Price: CDN$19.95
This book shows how a union leader, beginning with very few cards in his hands, managed to contrive a victory for the trawler fishermen of Newfoundland. The social and economic changes in Newfoundland between 1900 and the year of the strike provide the background for the story. An important and original study for anyone interested in industrial dispute, the place of rhetoric in public life, and the role the media plays in swaying public opinion.

"...should not only be required reading for anyone concerned with fish trades, but it should also be a practical handbook for our labour leaders. It is an excellent study of the use of words." - The Newfoundland Herald
