Now in its Fourth Printing:
Death in the Haymarket
A Story of Chicago, the First Labor Movement,
and the Bombing that Divided Gilded-Age America
"No potboiler on the best-seller list can compete with Death in the Haymarket for narrative GRIP. Rich in character, profound in resonance, shot-through with violence, set in the immigrant neighborhoods, meeting halls, and saloons of the capitol of the American 19th century, here is a Chicago of life – part labor-history, part immigrant history, part courtroom drama. James Green's subject is the stuff of tragic drama – injustice and betrayal."
- Jack Beatty, Senior Editor, The Atlantic Monthly
