Praise for Revolt on Goose Island:

“Brisk, compelling… deftly interweaves her narrative with sketches of union and labor history.”—Kate Schmidt, Chicago Reader

“A clear and emotionally compelling account of the Chicago factory takeover that captivated national attention….a gripping narrative.”—NewCity

“There is much talk about ‘audacity’ these days, but true chutzpah is when the workers take over the factory and take on the bank. Kari Lydersen’s invaluable account of the Republic sit-down strike is an instruction manual for worker dignity.”—Mike Davis, author of Buda’s Wagon and City of Quartz

“A riveting tale from beginning to end.” —Bookslut
