The least-discussed political assassination of America's 20th century is finally dramatized in novel form. Arch-Imperialist President McKinley pays for the murder of tens of thousands of Filipinos and the industrial enslavement of millions at home with a bullet in the belly at the hands of a European anarchist hell-bent on avenging The People. As Emma Goldman says in the quote that serves as an epigraph: "You will never stamp out anarchy any more than you can keep down the waves of the sea with a broom. You may kill an anarchist but you will never kill an idea."
