About the Author
""The best biography of Eugene Debs yet published....A valuable contribution to the history of American political and economic radicalism."
----American Historical Review
""The Bending Cross offers us an old-fashioned--and, yes, incorrigibly romantic--ethos for activism; an antidote to jaded postmodernist cynicism, made compelling and coherent by the example of Debs's own life. It is ironic that the Socialist leader was imprisoned for 'disloyalty, ' since what most distinguished Debs was his moral steadfastness and unbreakable loyalty to the labor movement."
----Mike Davis, from the Introduction
"The Bending Cross is a beautiful and important book, even after all these years and the further accumulation of scholarship on the life of Eugene V. Debs. Ray Ginger, a socialist scholar of the heart as well as the mind, captured the real Debs. Hurrah for this reprinting!"
--Paul Buhle, co-scriptwriter of Eugene V..Debs: A Graphic Biography
