(no dust jacket) [nice clean book, with just light wear to extremities]. (B&W photographs) Proletarian drama, adapted from Grace Lumpkin's 1932 novel about the Gastonia strike. Don West, in his introduction (originally published as a review of the play in The Daily Worker), states: "With keen and discriminating understanding, with sensitive and sympathetic strokes, Albert Bein paints this picture of an awakening South, of a youthful and gigantic proletariat testing its strength, of the unity of black and white workers being welded over prejudice and lies by a common interest. ... It is one of the most significant things yet to be produced about the South. (The original cast included Will Geer and Tom Ewell. Also interesting to note that Lumpkin gets co-billing, as it were, on the book's spine, and also shares the copyright on the published version with playwright Bein.)
