Joe Hill: The IWW & The Making of a Revolutionary Working Class Counterculture

£22.99

Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

"A monumental work, expansive in scope, covering the life, times, and culture of that most famous of the Wobblies - songwriter, poet, hobo, thinker, humorist, martyr - Joe Hill. It is a journey into the Wobbly culture that made Hill and the capitalist culture that killed him. Many aspects of the life and lore of Joe Hill receive their first and only discussion in IWW historian Franklin Rosemont’s opus.

In great detail, the issues that Joe Hill raised and grappled with in his life: capitalism, white supremacy, gender, religion, wilderness, law, prison, and industrial unionism are shown in both the context of Hill’s life and for their enduring relevance in the century since his death.

Collected too is Joe Hill’s art, plus scores of other images featuring Hill-inspired art by IWW illustrators from Ralph Chaplin to Carlos Cortez, as well as contributions from many other labor artists.

As Rosemont suggests in this remarkable book, Joe Hill never really died. He lives in the minds of young (and old) rebels as long as his songs are sung, his ideas are circulated, and his political descendants keep fighting for a better day."

Copublished by Charles H Kerr Library, PM Press and Between the Lines (2016), authored by Franklin Rosemont and with an introduction by David Roediger.
