About the Author:

David F. Prindle is professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin. His first book, Petroleum Politics and the Texas Railroad Commission, received the V.O. Key Jr. Award given by the Southern Political Science Association to the best book on Southern politics. He is author of many books, including Stephen Jay Gould and the Politics of Evolution.

From Library Journal:

This "case study of ideology and democracy" examines a unique union whose members are in a precarious profession where job stability and work conditions vary greatly. Prindle describes the "permanent internal strife" and "consistent split" in the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) between its conservative and progressive factions, which have fundamentally different beliefs and values about the role of unions as well as critical disagreements over guild policies. The book examines the impact and legacy--both personal and professional--of the blacklist and graylist of the 1940s and 1950s, concluding that the much publicized actions of SAG in the 1980s saw the legacy of militant anti-Communism become anti-anti-Communism. For students of contemporary American unionism.
