Wobblies!: A Graphic History of the Industrial Workers of the World ebook

by Nicole Schulman,Paul Buhle


And it was there sacrifice that gave us some of the rights we have

A grassroots organization that fought for equality and safe working conditions, the Wobblies also had ties to women's rights and socialism. And it was there sacrifice that gave us some of the rights we have. But what was more important than the 8 hour work day, child labor laws, and other rights the IWW struggled to give us, was the inspiration and example of commitment to justice, love and solidarity for each other, and an uncompromising attitude in the face of brutal repression and persecution.

Paul Buhle and Nicole Schulman have gone way beyond that with Wobblies! A Graphic History.

The IWW, which has been organizing workers since 1905, is often cited yet elusive to scholars because of its eclectic and controversial cultural and social character. Wobblies! presents the IWW whole, scripted and drawn by old-time and younger Wobbly and IWW-inspired artists. Paul Buhle and Nicole Schulman have gone way beyond that with Wobblies! A Graphic History. America, contrary to what you might have been led to believe, has a deep indigenous radical tradition.

Her comics and illustrations have appeared in publications such as the New York Times, and are in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress. She lives in New York City. Harvey Pekar is a comic book writer and author of the autobiographical American Splendor series, which was adapted into an Academy Award nominated film. Pekar is also a prolific jazz and book critic.

The book was a little hard for me to get through as so many of the stories ended with the persecution, incarceration, torture, and general repression of individuals and groups of activists. But any study of American history would illustrate the same, I suppose.

Buhle is a long-time chronicler of the American radical movement and popular culture. For today’s radicals, the IWW has a powerful mystique since many of the leading figures were martyrs to the cause, including the hobo and folksinger Joe Hill. Hill’s songs have enormous staying power as demonstrated by Billy Bragg’s cover of There is Power in a Union

He is the authorized biographer of C. L. R. James. Buhle was born in Champaign, Illinois, on September 27, 1944. His mother was a registered nurse with the maiden name of Pearle Drake. His father, Merlyn Buhle, was a geologist

We are taken through several major strikes and biographies of bohemians and revolutionaries by the comic’s several contributors

We are taken through several major strikes and biographies of bohemians and revolutionaries by the comic’s several contributors. Curiously, what unites many of these tales is the suffering of their subjects.

The stories of the hard-rock miners’ shooting wars, young Elizabeth Gurly Flynn (the “Rebel Girl” of contemporary sheet music), the first sit-down strikes and Free Speech fights, Emma Goldman and the struggle for birth control access, the Pageant for Paterson orchestrated in Madison Square Garden, bohemian radicals John Reed and Louise Bryant, field-hand revolts and lumber workers’ strikes, wartime witch hunts, government prosecutions and mob lynching, Mexican-American uprisings in Baja, and Mexican peasant revolts led by Wobblies, hilarious and sentimental songs created and later revived—all are here, and much, much more. The IWW, which has been organizing workers since 1905, is often cited yet elusive to scholars because of its eclectic and controversial cultural and social character. Wobblies! presents the IWW whole, scripted and drawn by old-time and younger Wobbly and IWW-inspired artists. Contributors include Carlos Cortez (former editor of the Industrial Worker), Harvey Pekar (author of American Splendor), Peter Kuper (MAD’s Spy vs. Spy), Sue Coe, Seth Tobocman, Chris Cardinale, Ryan Inzana, Spain Rodriques, Trina Robbins, Sharon Rudahl, and the circle of artists for World War 3 Illustrated.
Gold as Heart
This is one of the most enjoyable books on the hidden and suppressed labor history of American workers. Made all the more enjoyable by the variety of people's artists/cartoonists that have contributed to what is surely a labor of love. This is not what you're going to be taught in schools or colleges. This book portrays clearly that long memorable struggle for dignity among the working class that continues to the present day.
The Wobblies held to a grass roots approach of organizing workers, prefering "crude vigor to polished banality", a system of priorites too little seen in these waning days of capitalism. Each young person, parent and school should have this information available to them, for any soul not born with a silver spoon wedged in their mouth will come away from this history with a lump in your throat and a new spring in your step. In light of encroaching globalism (that is no friend to worker's anywhere) this is a handbook to inspire and encourage a new generation to take control of their own destiny.
Solidarity Forever!
P.S.- Check out the recordings of Utah Phillips, the modern troubadour/sage of the Wobblies.

This is one of the best books I've ever read and a great addition to anyone's library. The artwork is excellent and diverse. Many different styles of drawing are represented here. I especially like the comic about black IWW members. I got the impression that the color white is portrayed as a shade of black, instead of the opposite representation. At least, that's what it seemed to me, I'm not sure that was the intention of the artist. There are also many original IWW cartoons from its heyday, I think many are drawn by Ralph Chaplin. But even if there were no pretty drawings, this book would be worth a read. The IWW have a rich and too often overlooked history. It is a passionate history. A history of people working together to achieve justice in a world that won't give it without a sacrifice. And it was there sacrifice that gave us some of the rights we have. But what was more important than the 8 hour work day, child labor laws, and other rights the IWW struggled to give us, was the inspiration and example of commitment to justice, love and solidarity for each other, and an uncompromising attitude in the face of brutal repression and persecution. This book really gave me an understanding of who the IWW was and what it could still be(maybe in another manifestation, although it would be great to see the revival of this labor union). I really felt a connection with them after reading this book and a sense of gratitude for them, too. I would love to see this book in school and public libraries, and whoever decides to buy it, share it with as many people as you can. This isn't just a dry, intellectual history. It is a vital history that awakens the heart to a sense of the possibilities of justice.

Bought it as a gift for someone. They loved it
As a historian of the IWW, I bought this title hoping for something new and insightful. While the presentation is new, it really suggests what Henry Adams referred to as the devolution of America. The real IWW did some interesting things with the graphic arts -- none of which are cited or displayed by the author. While portrayed as a serious history, this is truly a comic book posing as history. I would not buy it again/
