Summary
"For Billy, an aspiring writer struggling to reconcile his sympathy for the workingman with his middle-class allegiance to capitalist progress, the New York waterfront becomes a window on the world. There he bears witness to the explosive tensions between labor and capital, falling under the influence of two divergent mentors: Dillon, an accomplished engineer and friend of the establishment; and Kramer, who has forsaken every comfort to live in the slums and preach the gospel of unionism. When the Harbor erupts in violence, Billy must choose for himself which path to follow."--P. [4] of cover.
