Haymarket Scrapbook – 125th Anniversary Edition
April 29, 2012
Marking the 125th anniversary of the 1886 bombing at Chicago’s Haymarket Square, a revised and expanded edition of the Haymarket Scrapbook has been released. The new edition, a collaboration between Kerr Company and anarchist publishing house AK Press, preserves the original composition of the 1986 edition and expands the included material to encompass several new essays and articles on the importance of Haymarket for contemporary labor struggles.
This profusely illustrated anthology reproduces hundreds of original documents, speeches, posters, and handbills, as well as contributions by many of today’s finest labor and radical historians focusing on Haymarket’s enduring influence around the world—including the eight-hour workday.
