The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), commonly known as the Wobblies, were among the most well-respected and largest unions in the United States in the early 20th century. Having organized the first major automobile industry strike as well as major coalfield and transit workers strikes, the IWW has a history of being a fierce advocate for the worker. Long before most other unions, IWW welcomed women, African-Americans, and immigrants into their ranks, making the Wobblies among the most progressive organizations of the era. As the only comprehensive history of the IWW, this chronicle anthologizes nearly every important document and essay in the Wobblies' rich history. The impact of the IWW has reverberated through the history of unions and organized labor, and this is their story

Joe Hill was a Swedish-American labor activist, songwriter and member of the I.W.W. While he was in Utah, he was convicted of murder in a controversial trial. After an unsuccessful appeal, political debates and international calls for clemency from high profile people and workers' organizations, he was executed. On 19 Nov. 1915 he was executed by a firing squad. After his execution, his body was sent to Chicago for cremation. His ashes were placed in envelopes and mailed throughout the world to different people and labor organizations to scatter. Most organizations scattered them. The songbook includes lyrics to several songs Hill authored and a portrait of him
The Centralia conspiracy by Ralph Chaplin( )

2 editions published between 1920 and 1924 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nation was shocked on November 11, 1919, to read of the killing of four American Legion men by members of the Industrial Workers of the World in Centralia. The capitalist newspapers announced to the world that these unoffending paraders were killed in cold blood--that they were murdered from ambush without provocation of any kind. If the author were convinced that there was even a slight possibility of this being true, he would not raise his voice to defend the perpetrators of such a cowardly crime

I.W.W. songs to fan the flames of discontent : a reprint of the nineteenth edition (1923) of the famous "Little Red Song Book." by Industrial Workers of the World( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undoubtedly the most popular book in American labor history, the I.W.W.'s Little Red Song Book has been a staple item on picket lines and at other workers' gatherings for generations, and has gone through numerous editions. As a result of I.W.W. efforts to keep up with the times, however, recent versions of the songbook have omitted most of the old-time favorites, especially the raucous lyrics of the free-spirited hoboes who made up such a large portion of the union's membership in its heyday. For example, recent versions have left out all but a few of the celebrated songs of Joe Hill, T-Bone Slim, Ralph Chaplin, and other pioneer bards of the One Big Union--and many of the few remaining older songs have been abridged or otherwise modified. The steadily mounting interest in Wobbly history and culture warrants this facsimile edition of a classic Little Red Song Book from the union's Golden Age. Reprinted here is the Nineteenth Edition, originally issued in 1923, the year the I.W.W. reached its peak membership. Of the fifty-two songs in this book, the overwhelming majority have not been included in the I.W.W.'s own songbooks for many years. Here are such classics as Joe Hill's "John Golden and the Lawrence Strike," "We Will Sing One Song," "Scissor Bill," "The Tramp," and others; T-Bone Slim's "I'm Too Old to Be a Scab," "Mysteries of a Hobo's Life," "I Wanna Free Miss Liberty," and others; Ralph Chaplin's "All Hell Can't Stop Us," "Up from Your Knees," "May Day Song," and more; and other songs by C.G. Allen, Richard Brazier, Pat Brennan, James Connelly, Laura Payne Emerson, and many others. Ninety years ago these songs were sung with gusto in Wobbly halls and hobo jungles from Brooklyn to San Pedro. And they're still fun to sing today!
