The Case of Joe Hill

by Philip S. Foner - £9.99  International Publishers (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780717800223 | ISBN 10: 0717800229

The famous Wobbly poet, songwriter and organizer was executed in Salt Lake City on November 19, 1915. Many felt he was not guilty of the murder he was charged with, that he did not have a fair trial, and that he was the victim of class persecution. Here noted American labor historian Philip Foner presents the first complete study of this important labour case. Based on exhaustive research in a wide variety of sources, Dr Foner conclusively demonstrates that Joe Hill was the victim of a colossal frame-up.
