Joe Hill




The IWW and the Making of a Revolutionary Workingclass Counterculture

By Franklin Rosemont
Introduction by David Roediger (2nd Edition)
PM Press/Charles H. Kerr Publishing

A monumental work, expansive in scope, and not only the life, times, and culture of that most famous of the Wobblies (songwriter, poet, hobo, thinker, humorist, martyr), but crucially—and in great detail—the issues that he raised then—capitalism, white supremacy, gender, religion, wilderness, law, prison, industrial unionism—and their enduring relevance, and impact in the century since his death. Collected too is all his art, plus scores of other illustrations featuring Hill-inspired art by IWWs from Ralph Chaplin to Carlos Cortez, as well as other labor artists.

“The fine chapter on Hill’s involvement in the Mexican Revolution is alone well worth the cover price…. No doubt about it: This is the best book ever written about Joe Hill.”–Utah Phillips

“In these 600-plus pages there is not one bit of tedious reading. This is an important book.”–Industrial Worker

“Joe Hill has finally found a chronicler worthy of his revolutionary spirit, sense of humor, and poetic imagination.”–Robin D.G. Kelley
