    DescriptionCultural Writing. Autobiography. Labor history. New to SPD. The Most Dangerous Woman in America is what employers and politicians called Mother Jones. But rebellious working men and women loved her as they have never loved anyone else, before or since. In this classic American biography, the greatest labor organizer in U.S. history details her three-quarter-century fight for labor's liberation, and her unswerving belief in industrial unionism as the key to the struggle. Mother Jones' lively narrative -- every page bristling with her characteristic humor, indignation, and uncommon sense -- is a masterpiece of American radicalism. This abundantly illustrated new edition includes many valuable supplements. In a new Foreword, Meridel LeSueur vividly recalls her 1914 meeting with Mother Jones. IWW historian Fred Thompson's Afterword provides useful background and fills in important gaps in Mother Jones' story.
