Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up
Eugene Debs, Emma Goldman, Upton Sinclair, Norman Thomas, and John Reed felt stirred to fight the injustices they felt were inflicted upon the poor and working-class citizens of America and other countries as well. These labor activists turned their idealism into action over the course of their lives and changed the American social and political scene in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They agitated for strikes by underpaid laborers, exposed cruel labor practices, and never let go of their vision of a more equitable system for every person. Goldman and Reed also bore witness to social revolutions abroad. Arrested countless times, they wrote extensively, campaigned for political office, and never stopped trying to help those they considered powerless. In addition to being an introduction to these individuals, this book can also be referred to for an analysis of the Socialist movement and party in America, considering the political affiliations of each of them. Although the text is dry and dense, students searching for in-depth details about the life and work of these individuals will find it here. Good-quality black-and-white photos are scattered throughout.
