Six previously uncollected essays in alternative history—maybe even “lost/found” history — from the author of Sacred Drift, Pirate Utopias, Heresies, riverpeople, Escape from the 19th Century, and many more. 

“The American Revolution As A Gigantic Real Estate Scam” establishes the acutely “revisionist” mood; — another essay touching on early American history, “Toland, Blake and the American Druids,” follows.

Then, a pair of essays on the scandal of eugenics in America — “Jukes in Utopia,” about a family oppressed by Eugenicists in upstate New York, and “The Monkey Trial: A Revisionist Interpretation.”

Finally, two essays on anarchist themes: “The Coffeehouse Republic,” on Gustav Landauer and the Munich Soviet of 1919, and “Brand: An Italian Anarchist and His Dream,” on Enrico Arrigoni, “the last of the Italian left-wing Stirnerite individualists” and his amazing insurrectionism and illegalism.
