Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This biography of Eugene V. Debs differs from its predecessors by accenting the ideological leanings of the Socialist Party's standard-bearer. Salvatore sees Debs as motivated by traditional American democratic aspirations rather than by European Marxism. Debs's reaction to the social disruptions caused by late 19th century capitalist excesses was more radical than most progressive reformers, but it was born of the same yearnings for egalitarianism and individualism. Salvatore's depiction of Debs as defender of the republican ideal wears thin at times as he downplays the emergence of Marxist thought in the United States. His interpretation of Debs' developmental years nonetheless accounts for his peculiar strain of American socialism." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
