Welcome to the Debs Project!

This is an informational website and blog relating to the ongoing 5-volume Eugene V. Debs Selected Works project, edited by Tim Davenport and David Walters, to be published by Haymarket Books of Chicago. Volumes will appear annually beginning in 2018.

Very rough working titles for the five volumes of the project are as follows:

     • Volume 1: The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, 1877-1892             [manuscript in house, book due out 2018]

     • Volume 2: The Rise and Fall of the ARU, 1892-1896   [due out late 2018 or early 2019]

     • Volume 3: Movement Builder, 1897-1907   [due out 2019]

     • Volume 4: Socialist Orator, 1908-1915   [due out 2020]

     • Volume 5: Radical Icon, 1916-1926   [due out 2021]

Each volume will include an editorial introduction; articles, press statements, and speeches by Socialist labor leader Eugene V. Debs; photographs and cartoons from the contemporary press; copious footnotes, and a professionally-produced index. Both hardcover and paperback versions of each volume will be published.

The editors solicit input from other Debs scholars in the United States and around the world. Please contact Tim Davenport: ShoeHutch@gmail.com
