"Big things are happening secretly all around," says the hero of Jack London's 1908 novel The Iron Heel, excerpted in this timely anthology of London's writings about war and revolution. Besides illuminating his surprising literary range, this collection establishes the iconic American author as both a product of his own era and a significant voice for ours. The book features works by London that have been unavailable for decades. In his introduction, editor Jonah Raskin lays out the social, economic, and political contexts for London's polemical writings and shows London to be America's leading revolutionary writer at the turn of the twentieth century.--From publisher description.

Seldom has a book been edited/compiled which show captures the entirety of the author presented. Mr. Raskin has done a remarkable job of capturing the real Radical Socialist of our country, Jack London!
