Abstract:  AGAINST THE TIDE is a history of the Canadian Seamen's Union, born on the Great Lakes in the 1930s, which grew to be one of the most important and powerful unions in Canada during the Second World War, representing seamen from coast to coast. Its challenge to entrenched power led to violent attacks against it by the RCMP, the courts, the government, and the rival Seafarers' International Union.
