Carlo Tresca: Portrait of a Rebel

Paperback

Price: $19.95

Overview

Nunzio Pernicone’s biography uses Carlo Tresca’s (1879-1943) storied life?as newspaper editor, labor agitator, anarchist, anti-communist, street fighter, and opponent of fascism?as a springboard to investigate Italian immigrant and radical communities in the United States. From his work on behalf of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), the Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee, and his assassination on the streets of New York City, Tresca’s passion left a permanent mark on the American map.

This edition, both revised and expanded, provides new insight into the American labor movement and a unique perspective on the immigrant experience.

Nunzio Pernicone is a professor of history at Drexel University.
