‘Dynamite’, written in the 1930s and now revised, recounts a fascinating, and largely forgotten history of class struggle during America’s industrial begininngs. it is the story of brutal exploitation, massacres and judicial murders directed against workers. It is also the story of how they responded; at first with peaceful strikes, but later with dynamite and corruption. The author shows how a level of violence unheard of in Europe was the inevitable result of the American situation.
