Edited and with a detailed introduction by Jon Curley, this work features a never-before-published short story by the famous anarchist and victim of legal persecution and xenophobia. That fact that Bartolomeo Vanzetti, an Italian immigrant, learned to write in English while jailed for a capital crime is remarkable enough. What is even more astonishing is that he chose to use his new language skills to write creatively, inventing a parable about worker exploitation and environmental disaster that is as relevant today as it was almost a hundred years ago. In a time of assault on immigrants, dissidents, radicals, and the environment, Events and Victims is as timely as ever.
