The Revolutionary Journalism of Big Bill Haywood: On the Picket Line with the IWW


Product Information

"Big Bill Haywood was one of the most inspirational leaders of the revolutionary Industrial Workers of the World (IWW or Wobblies) in the early 20th century. A giant of a man, Haywood started working down the miens at the age of nine and went on to lead massive struggles, confronting employers, private detectives, police troops, vigilantes and the US government...
This book collects together most of Haywood's articles for the revolutionary International Socialist Review. Written between 1910 and 1917, the articles cover struggles not only in the US but also in Europe – notably the 1911 South Wales miners' strike and the 1913 Dublin Lockout. They capture the astonishing ingenuity and courage of those fighting back against a brutal system intent on making those at the bottom pay for a crisis created by those at the top – an inspiration for the struggle today and to come."

Big Bill Haywood, edited and introduced by John Newsinger. Bookmarks, 2017.
