Harp Song for a Radical: The Life and Times of Eugene Victor Debs

This book is about Eugene Debs
In "Harp Song for a Radical: The Life and Times of Eugene Victor Debs," Marguerite Young delves into the fervent landscape of industrial America, tracing the profound influence of Eugene Debs on the American labor and socialist movements. Published on September 14, 1999, this extensive biography interweaves the tumultuous era of economic and social upheaval with Debs' personal evolution from a railroad worker in Terre Haute, Indiana, to a formidable figure in American socialism. As Debs transitions from labor leader to five-time Socialist candidate for president, often campaigning from behind bars, Young portrays a nation grappling with the growing pains of industrial capitalism and the quest for workers’ rights and voting rights. This narrative not only captures the essence of a pivotal time in American history but also serves as a critical reflection on the struggles for economic justice that resonate deeply today. Ideal for adult education, this book invites readers to explore the complexities of social justice through the life of a radical leader whose legacy continues to inspire the fight for equitable change.
