The Iron Heel By Jack London
Paperback: $12.44
Ships in 3-5 business days
A dramatic novel, set as a personal diary of a socialist revolutionary taking part in a bloody and violent uprising against plutocratic capitalism, first in the United States, and then the world.... More > Written by the famed author of Call of the Wild and White Fang, this book explicitly reveals the racial socialist worldview of Jack London, and caused considerable controversy when first published. The book runs on two levels: the first-hand account of the revolutionary leader Avis Everhard, and then in a series of extended footnotes by the scholar Anthony Meredith. The manuscript, found “seven centuries” after it was written,” provides “an estimable historical record” of the great revolution, which London obviously felt was necessary. One of the first dystopian novels, The Iron Heel influenced George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and many other works of revolutionary fiction. A thrilling read, greatly influenced by working peoples’ conditions and ultra-capitalist exploitation of the time.< Less
