Description - Dynamite by Louis Adamic

Labour disputes have produced more violence over a longer period in the US than any other industrialised nation in the world. From 1890 to 1930, hardly a year passed without a serious - and often deadly - clash between workers and management. Written in the 1930s and with a new introduction by Mike Davis, DYNAMITE recounts a fascinating and largely forgotten history of class and labour struggle in America's industrial beginnings.

Author Biography - Louis Adamic

Louis Adamic (1898-1951) was one of the best-known ethnic American authors of the twentieth century. His politics, firmly on the left, were always controversial. In circumstances that remain a mystery, in 1951, Adamic was found shot dead in his burning farmhouse in Milford, New Jersey. A former meatcutter and long-distance truck driver, Mike Davis teaches urban theory and was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. He is the author Buda's Wagon: A Brief History of the Car Bomb and City of Quartz. He lives in San Diego.
