Power in Coalition represents a significant contribution to social action research within the field of industrial relations, and labour studies in particular. It is not just a strong piece of scholarship aimed at tackling a ‘real’ and pressing problem,
but one written by a politically active and engaged researcher, and which is explicitly aimed at union and community activists. Previous studies of union to non-union coalition building have not had the strength of being written about at such length and in such a strongly conceptualized and theorized way. Power in Coalition is a fascinating and impressive but alas not always totally convincing book.
