The Selected Works of Eugene V. Debs, Vol. I
Railway Populist, 1877-1896

An extensive compilation of articles, speeches, press statements, and open letters by American socialist Eugene V. Debs.

An extensive compilation of articles, speeches, press statements, and open letters by American socialist Eugene V. Debs, this book is the first in a five volume series that assembles much of Debs’s work for the first time in a single place.

Illuminating nineteenth century working-class history, particularly the complex and shifting situation in the transportation industry, this volume provides a basis for deeper understanding of Debs and his role later during the glory days of the Socialist Party of America.
