Dan Hamilton, Chicago DSA's Political Education Director, interviews
Professor William A. Pelz on the occasion of the recent release
of the second edition of the Eugene V. Debs Reader: Socialism
and the Class Struggle. Edited by Professor Pelz, the book
is an anthology of writings and speeches by one of the most radical
of America's early 20th century labor leaders, bringing to life
a once powerful Socialist movement. Eugene Victor Debs (1855-1926),
one of America's most famous socialists, was an important political
figure on the American political landscape in the early 20th
century. He ran as the Socialist Party's presidential candidate
five times and obtained nearly a million votes in 1912 and 1920.
