Coming at a time of profound change in the global conditions under which American organized labor exists, The Future of the American Labor Movement, first published in 2002, describes and analyzes labor's strategic alternatives. The analysis is broadly cast, taking into account ideas that range from the current European Social Dialogue to the methods of the nineteenth-century American Knights of Labor. There are a number of intriguing strategies that have potential for reviving the labor movement in the United States, of which worker ownership and labor capital strategies are examples. This book demonstrates the necessity for a number of diverse strategies to be pursued simultaneously. For this to work, one has to think in terms of a broad movement of labor, consisting of diverse parts, held together by a clear idea of its purpose and a new structure.

'Hoyt Wheeler has a long history of involvement in the American labour movement at both an academic and a practical level ... an informative overview of the changing nature of American labour as it has evolved and responded to attacks from antagonistic employers and largely unsympathetic governments Admirably ...Wheeler also tries to convert his theory of (re)unionisation into practice by suggesting a vision for a renewed union movement ... a wealth of information for anyone interested in the future of the American labour movement.'
