Description

Italian immigrants and anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were framed by the state and executed for murder amid anti-immigrant hysteria in 1920s Boston. This book illustrates how anarchists and immigrants were the “terrorists” of yesteryear, and explores the consequences of using fear as a political weapon.

Features contributions from John Dos Passos, Emma Goldman, Joan Baez and Ennio Morricone, H.G. Wells, and Howard Zinn.
