Summary À The Man Who Never Died The Life Times and Legacy of Joe Hill American Labor Icon ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free William M. Adler × 5 Summary Ly exonerating himJoe Hill's gripping tale is set against a brief but electrifying moment in American history between the century's turn and World War I when the call for industrial unionism struck a deep chord among disenfranchised workers; when class warfare raged and capitalism was on the run Hill was the union's preeminent songwriter and in death he became organized labor's most venerated martyr celebrated by Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan and immortalized in th. I believe Mr Adler has proven his case although circumstantial it is compelling that the one brought by the anchorites of Utah and Salt Lake City The one thing that most struck me while reading the book was the cliche that the things change the they stay the same class warfare is not the province of Occupy and the 99% except that today s protestors do not have a personage of the stature of Joe Hill to inspire them even much less so than the antiwar protestors of the 60s and 70s Hill begat Guthrie Seeger they in turn begat Dylan and Ochs all the news that is fit to singI think that this book answers all the uestions that can or will be answered about Hill A lot of things are left unexplained and some of the given explanations such as Hill s account of the the events of the night of the murders strike me as unbelievable as if made up on the fly but that doesn t matter because Mr Adler clearly shows that no matter what the evidence presented at the trial and the trial itself were all a sham and a farce Of course a book about Joe Hill must also be about the IWW and I think that the book does an excellent job of giving us a contextual overview of the movement I didn t know Helen Keller was a Wobbly or that the IWW took an active part in the Mexican revolution Good book interesting read dare I say inspiring evenGood luck to all of you
