1. The puzzle box. Why strikes? Why Italy? Meet the Italian strike. Letting the data talk: the pieces of the puzzle. How to fit the puzzle: the available theories. Serious problems: dialogue among the deaf. More serious problems: it takes two to tango. Really serious problems: the automatic pilot (writing schemata and regression blenders). In search of a solution. Organization of the book. Pat solutions, red herrings, and paradoxes -- 2. Labor-market conditions and bargaining power. How the labor-market argument runs. The economists' tradition of strike research: the Ashenfelter and Johnson model. Test of the Ashenfelter and Johnson model: empirical results. A word of caution. Further problems: Is that all we can say? Examining the residuals. Subsample analyses. Checking the results against economic history. Fitting the puzzle: the first step -- 3. When do workers strike? How the economy matters. Did I go wrong? Beyond strike-frequency models. Beyond labor-market models. Structural characteristics of the Italian economy. Even if bargaining parties had perfect knowledge: the Marxist view of conflict and the economy. Where we stand -- 4. Organizational resources and collective action. Shifting gears. Hardship, discontent, and labor unrest. Resource-mobilization theories of collective action. La longue duree: moral economy and repertoires of collective action. Testing the organizational model. Back to exploratory analyses. More history: the organization of interests. Muddled causality: further probing into the role of organization. Aiutati che il ciel t'aiuta: the Marxist approach to organization. Fitting more pieces to the puzzle -- 5. The structure of collective bargaining. Unanswered questions. Collective bargaining in postwar Italy: a brief historical overview. Does the structure of collective bargaining make a difference? Back to the Ashenfelter and Johnson model. Unexplained residuals: Why models of the number of strikers perform so poorly. Plant-level bargaining. On the cost of strikes (the employers' view). Unforeseen pieces fall into place. A false sense of security. The picture emerges -- 6. Class power, politics, and conflict. Left to explain: the 1975-78 strike shapes. Political models of strikes: the long term. Political models of strikes: the short term. Italian postwar politics: blocked opportunities on the left. Political subcultures: Red regions, White regions. An overall model of power. Short term and long term, economics and politics: the unions' dilemmas. Economic versus organizational/political models of strikes: Snyder's argument on Italy. The micro and the macro, the economic and the political: modes of regulation of labor. The power of statistics and the statistics of power. The finished picture? -- 7. Mobilization processes: the 1969 autunno caldo. Clearly an outlier: 1969. Strike waves and cycles of struggle. The supermarket at Fiat Mirafiori: the workers. The tactics: "everyone did what they wanted" The demands: vogliamo tutto ("we want everything"). The radical Left. Structure and culture. The limits of participation. Strike waves: political or economic explanations? -- 8. Countermobilization processes: reactions by the state and employers to strike waves. Switching sides: the view from above. State responses. The long aftermath. The great fear: from paternalism to personnel management. Collective responses: reaffirming la centralita dell'impresa. Converging interests: inquadramento unico (mobilita interna). Housecleaning (mobilita esterna). Machines don't strike. Small plants don't strike. Against the market and labor: the employers' dream of total flexibility. The puzzle is complete -- 9. The picture in the puzzle. Unexpected findings, one more time: class conflict as the independent variable. Summing up what we know (firm empirical grounds). Summing up what we don't know (theoretical puzzles and tentative solutions). Looking into the crystal ball: venturing predictions from the model. The test of history, one last time: the 1980s. Looking back, looking forth: the 1969 autunno caldo in historical perspective. Which road to the past? Methodological dilemmas
