ABOUT THE BOOK:
Though widely recognized as one of the Industrial Workers of the World’s leading members, and one of its most prominent militants, this is the first book length biography of Frank Little. Stead focuses on his activities among miners and other itinerate workers in the west, and chronicles Little’s role in the I.W.W.’s free speech fights, the strikes he led, as well as the anti-War agitation he carried out against the first world war. Famously lynched by Pinkertons for his pro-union activities, Little’s life offers innumerable lessons for working class people facing many of the same economic injustices in today’s world.
“[I]today’s working class and left movement, which is only yet regaining the confidence to strike and struggle in isolated pockets, Stead’s words hit the nail on the head. And so does Frank Little’s story.”
