      Author Bryan Palmer speaks on James P. Cannon A Native Son's Revolutionary Road

      Bryan Palmer, distinguished historian and Canada Research Chair at Trent University, Toronto, Ontario, discusses his recent book, James P. Cannon and the Origins of the American Revolutionary Left,
      1890 – 1928.

      Bryan's book examines Cannon's small-town roots in Kansas and his introduction to the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW). Trained by Wobbly agitator "Big Bill" Haywood, Cannon developed into a dynamic soapbox orator and labor leader who rode the rails, hobo-style, across the Midwest to organize strikes and build unions. He took a very public stance against World War I and went on to become the founder of U.S.Trotskyism.
