Library stamps/marks/labels/slip, otherwise light wear. Crisp hardcover.; "The Industrial Workers of the World, the most radical union America has seen, was the object of repeated attacks and vilification throughout the decate and a half of its effective existence, 1905-1919. The rough treatment and abuse endured by the Wobblies came from every segment of society: Socialists, Progressives, liberals, conservatives, labor, business, the church, the press, and state and local authorities all participated in the attack, which culminated in the massive Federal campaign to suppress the IWW. In nearly every state in the Union, Wobblies were clubbed, tarred and feathered, deported, shot, tortured, maimed, occasionally lynched, and universally despised. Newspapers of every description depicted them as a gang of irrational saboteurs, vile agents of corruption and free love, destroyers of the church and family, unconscionable traitors and, during the World War, agents of the Hun." ; American Legal and Constitutional History; Ex-Library; 341 pages.
