Stephen L. Fisher Organizing for change has always been difficult in Appalachia.

It makes us out to be the troublemakers, said one miner. Organizing for change has always been difficult in Appalachia. One of the major obstacles to effective organizing is the fact that the Appalachian economy has long been dependent on coal and other single-industry employers.

Very good resource for a class on Appalachian Studies.
Wizer
Interesting material but boring due to constant repetition. Read 2 or 3 chapters then skip to last one.
