New York: Frederick A, Stokes, 1937.
First Edition. Hardcover. Jeter, Goetze. THE STRIKERS. New York: Frederick A. Stokes, 1937. First Edition. 8vo., 329pp. Publisher's brick red rough linen lettered in dark blue, brick topstain, yellow endpapers. A near fine or better example in a superb Art Deco dustwrapper with factory smokestacks in orange, black & grey. THE STRIKERS is a Rideout style novel [unrecorded by Rideout] which is about a labour strike at a shoe factory. "It is no red doctrine - no capitalist propaganda - it is life itself. The pattern of existance woven by the men and women whose inividualities never break through to the (newspaper) headlines." - Dustwrapper blurb. "A story cross sectioning the lives of factory workers on strike. Probably not in a southern town, though the town is not identifiable. Shifting pictures of behind the scene in the lives of the men, whose gesture towards defiance is stalemated by the employers closing down the plant and departing. Too much on the sentimental side to class with usual proletarian literature, and in the main against the strike makers. More human interest than propaganda. Recalls in tempo, Leane Zugsmith's A Time To Remember, which told the story of a department store strike" - Kirkus. A superior example in excellent classic dustwrapper.
