The Iron Heel

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781556520716 | ISBN 10: 1556520719

From the Introduction
The Iron Heel appeared in 1908. By 1947, Philip Foner was calling it 'probably the most amazingly prophetic work of the twentieth century.' To us, looking backward from the closing decades of the century, this claim does not seem extravagant. For with every passing year, The Iron Heel now seems more timely, more vital.
When Jack London wrote this novel in 1906, the Russian revolution of 1905 was being crushed by the Czar's army, secret police and terrorist gangs. Few people anticipated that out of this terrible defeat would emerge the triumphant Russian revolution of 1917.
