Product Details


“[A] deeply moving tale that works as both love story and political statement.” –Jay Freeman, Booklist

Haymarket is a spirited fictional reconstruction of the police-instigated Haymarket riot in Chicago in 1886. . . . [W]e should be grateful to Duberman for spotlighting a neglected chapter in the struggle for workplace rights and human dignity.” –Peter Franck, Washington Post

“This book brings to life a haunting episode in the ever moving history of American labor. I read it with pleasure and profit.” –Vivian Gornick, author of Fierce Attachments

Haymarket reveals Martin Duberman’s unique combination fo talents as historian and writer of imaginative literature. Through the story of Albert and Lucy Parsons, he brings to life the social texture and gross inequalities of Reconstruction Texas and Gilded Age Chicago, and strikingly illuminates the radicalism that helped to shape modern America.” –Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History, Columbia University

“Easy to read and bursting with history.” Seattle Times
