American Political Prisoners : Prosecutions under the Espionage and Sedition Acts, Hardback Book

American Political Prisoners : Prosecutions under the Espionage and Sedition Acts Hardback

Description

This book is the first account of the personal lives of the nearly 1,000 long-term political prisoners arrested under various sedition laws for their opposition to World War I, their trade union activities, or their unpopular political or religious beliefs.

Based on the author's exclusive access to the uncensored prison files of many of these prisoners, and information obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act, Kohn relays the powerful prison experiences of some of America's most famous and colorful labor, socialist, and peace leaders.

With over ten years of research, and access to tens of thousands of pages of never-before released U.S.

Department of Justice records, Stephen Kohn has been able to recreate the actual prison experiences of these political prisoners.
