Synopsis

The dramatic and instructive sketches of experiences during a half century.

Excerpt

My earlier book, From Bryan to Stalin, although it dealt in a general way with my experiences in the class struggle, was only partly autobiographical. The main purpose of that book was to serve as a contribution to the history of left-wing trade unionism in the United States during the past forty years. It also offered an outline of the development of the Communist Party.

The present book is a sequel to From Bryan to Stalin. It contains personal material which did not fit into the scheme of the preceding volume, but which throws light on the forces that made me arrive at my present political opinions. The subject matter is entirely true, taken from my own actual experience and presented without exaggeration or elaboration. In the numerous sketches, recollections and snapshots that comprise this book I have tried to picture, as I lived through them, the hopes and illusions, the comedy and tragedy, the exploitation and struggles of an American worker's life.
