Teamster Politics tells the story of how Minneapolis Teamster Local 544, guided by a class struggle leadership in the 1930s organized the unemployed and truck owner-operators into fighting union auxiliaries, deployed a Union Defense Guard to stop a membership drive by fascist Silver Shirts, combated FBI and Justice Department frame-ups, campaigned for workers to break politically from the bosses and organize a labor party based on the unions, and mobilized labor opposition to U.S. imperialism's entry into World War II.

Teamster Politics is the third book in author Farrell Dobbs's four-volume series on the Teamsters Union and the labor movement in the 1930s. A worker still in his twenties in the Minneapolis coal yards in 1934, Dobbs became a leader of the 1934 Minneapolis Teamster strikes and central organizer of an 11-state campaign that brought tens of thousands of over-the-road truckers into the union in the following years.New second edition features includes new special 20-page photo section, many from the Northwest Organizer, the newspaper of Local 544.
