""The best biography of Eugene Debs yet published....A valuable
contribution to the history of American political and economic
----American Historical Review
""The Bending Cross offers us an old-fashioned--and, yes,
incorrigibly romantic--ethos for activism; an antidote to jaded
postmodernist cynicism, made compelling and coherent by the example
of Debs's own life. It is ironic that the Socialist leader was
imprisoned for 'disloyalty, ' since what most distinguished Debs
was his moral steadfastness and unbreakable loyalty to the labor
----Mike Davis, from the Introduction
"The Bending Cross is a beautiful and important book,
even after all these years and the further accumulation of
scholarship on the life of Eugene V. Debs. Ray Ginger, a socialist
scholar of the heart as well as the mind, captured the real Debs.
Hurrah for this reprinting!"
--Paul Buhle, co-scriptwriter of Eugene V..Debs: A Graphic Biography
