Louis Waldman (January 5, 1892 - 1982?), author of this book, was a leading figure in the Socialist Party of America during its first 30 years and a prominent labor lawyer. Born in the Ukraine, Waldman migrated to America as a teenager settling in New York City. After first attending engineering school and law school, he was elected to the New York State Assembly as a Socialist in 1917 and again in 1919. That year, all five Socialist members (August Claessens, Samuel Orr, Charles Solomon, and Sam Dewitt) were expelled in what became a lengthy court fight which was central to the struggle for civil liberties during the Red Scare. This book is Waldman's side of the story, told from his perspective. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2 lbs 1 oz.
