Good. Signed. 0919396496 324 pages including index and numerous interesting black and white photographic plates. Inscribed to "Number 32 Deepsea" by Author upon half-title page which bears many additional signatures including those of: David Forsyth, Bob MacLaurier, A.J. (Jack) Douglas, Bob Kennedy, Tom McGrath, A. McKeown, Gerry McCullough, Bill Wilson, and Lloyd Robinson. McCullough is mentioned in the book as a Lake seaman who went deepsea during the war and was, at time of publication, a full-time organizer for the International Transport Workers Federation and responsible for tracking down ships violating basic conditions and bringing them into line. His predecessor was Tom McGrath. Shotguns, Mounties, American gangsters, the courts and government-all were used by the shipowners to destroy the Canadian Seaman's Union. What was this union that provoked such an unprecedented attack? Combining rigorous research with the stirring recollections of the people who lived the events, Jim Green weaves a gripping story from the union's birth on the Great Lakes in the mid-1930s through the 1949 world-wide strike to save the Canadian merchant fleet. Some creasing to covers. Average wear overall to this special copy.
