Gale Ahrens 2004 183p 5 x 8
‘More dangerous than 1000 rioters!’ That’s what the Chicago police called Lucy Parsons – America’s most defiant and persistent anarchist agitator, whose cross-country speaking tours inspired hundreds of thousands of working people. Her friends and admirers included William Morris, Peter Kropotkin, ‘Big Bill’ Haywood, Ben Reitman, Sam Dolgoff – and the groups in which she was active were just as varied: the Knights of Labor, IWW, Dil Pickle Club, International Labor Defense, & others. Here for the first time is a hefty selection of her powerful writings & speeches – on anarchism, women, race matters, class war, the IWW, and the U.S. injustice system.
