An outrageous price, but an outrageously wonderful (and pretty huge) book. We have a few limited quantities of this paperback edition of Avrich's moving appraisal of the infamous Haymarket bombing (May 1886) and the trial that followed it.
"Critics have been asking, where are the studies in American working-class history that are also in the best literary tradition? Where among serious scholars today is the art of historical narrative? Here is the answer, in Paul Avrich's finest book."—Paul Berman, Voice Literary Supplement
