Picture of Republic of Labor: Russian Printers and Soviet Socialism, 1918-1930.
Professor Koenker has deeply researched her subject, the social world of the Russian printer. These workers differed from their comrades because of their skill and higher wages, yet shared the same economic hardships and dangerous conditions. Through the experience of printers we learn about the working-class organisations, identities, and relationship to authority.
