“Nameless in the crowd of nameless ones…” : Some thoughts on The Story of A Proletarian Life, by Bartolomeo Vanzetti, 1923
Some thoughts on Vanzetti's "Story of a Proletarian Life". Surely this work is one of the greatest working class autobiographies of all time?
"... I wanted to write on the proletarian transformation of politics and the tradition of 'socialism from below'. I share that commitment to working class self-emancipation and autonomy, and so gathered materials for a thesis on proletarian order... hoping to inform a little, inspire and just pay tribute to... all those who breathed fire and life into socialism. "
