Peter Duffy’s beautifully rendered narrative reveals why Bill Bailey was one of the most colorful and inspiring figures in the history of the modern American left. The blow he struck in 1935 against the Nazi regime was merely symbolic, but it helped touch off the anti-fascist resistance that worked a profound change in U.S. politics and culture.Michael Kazin, author of War Against War: The American Fight for Peace 1914-1918 and coeditor of Dissent
