A new, inclusive union movement with a contemporary vision and an eye toward building social and economic power can remake society. That's the subject of Tom Wetzel's new book Overcoming Capitalism: Strategy for the Working Class in the 21st Century. He will be in conversation with Leslie Leyba and introduced by James Tracy.

Overcoming Capitalism is a book about strategy, particularly how the powerless can get the upper hand. And it’s written for everyone—not a specialized, self-selected audience. Tom Wetzel carefully explains how capitalism works and how the structure is stacked against us, with an eye toward where power lies and how we can tip the scales.

Tom Wetzel has written on labor history, worker struggles, libertarian socialist ideas, and housing struggles since the 1970s. He has been published by ZNet and ROAR Magazine and is a former editor of the anarcho-syndicalist magazine ideas & action, where many of his essays were published. He is based in Hayward, CA.

James Tracy is a Bay Area-based author, organizer, and teacher. He is the co-author of Hillbilly Nationalists, Urban Race Rebels and Black Power; No Fascist USA! The John Brown Anti-Klan Committee and Lessons for Today's Movements; and the author of Dispatches Against Displacement: Field Notes From San Francisco's Housing Wars.

Leslie Leyba is a co-op member of the worker-owned Rainbow Grocery.
