Dynamite

The Story of Class Violence in America

Louis Adamic     1935     380p     5 x 8

The history of labor in the United States is a story of almost continuous violence. In Dynamite, Louis Adamic recounts one century of that history in vivid, carefully researched detail. Covering both well- and lesser-known events — from the riots of immigrant workers in the second quarter of the nineteenth century to Molly Maguires of the Pennsylvania coalfields, the General Strike of 1877, the early and reckless years of steel working, to the Mooney-Billings trial and Adamic’s own experience with the IWW — he gives precise, and often brutal, meaning to the term ‘class war.’
