Hoffa, Revised Edition
In Hoffa, Arthur Sloane has written the only comprehensive biography of the late Teamster leader, having had full access to Jimmy Hoffa's family, friends, and professional associates. Hoffa is a rich and colorful portrait of this powerful and contradictory character, one of the most influential figures in American labor. It covers in considerable detail all the facets of Hoffa's remarkable life and death; his rise to total dominance over the largest, strongest, and wealthiest union in American history; his near-Victorian personal habits; the legal problems that plagued his later years; and, of course, the shadowy events surrounding his presumed Mafia murder in 1975.Arthur A. Sloane is Professor of Industrial Relations at the University of Delaware.
