Harvey Schwartz, The March Inland: Origins of the ILWU Warehouse Division 1934-1938 (ILWU, 2000). 282 pages.
The International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union has been a Bay Area presence since the great labor explaosion of the 1930s. Harvey Schwartz, as official historian of the ILWU, has revised the 1978 edition. One of the more remarkable features of this particular effort is the inclusion of so many quotes culled from contemporary sources, interviews, oral histories, etc... from the men who were directly involved in the events portrayed. A good read for those interested in labor, Bay Area history, and the politics of the docks.
Jorge Boehringer composes music, plays music, makes zines, makes art, makes movies, & makes art (yes again, he is relentless)...all on a daily basis. He breathes post-everything and avant-everything, all at the same time. Do yourself a favor and turn out for this.
This is a composed piece performance. It promises to be stellar, just stellar.
