Bernie Sanders inspired a generation - but who inspired him? Most people in America don't know that the contemporary political movement to address income inequality began over 100 years ago with Eugene Victor Debs. American Socialist: The Life and Times of Eugene Victor Debs traces the history of American populism with the man who inspired progressive ideas - from FDR's New Deal to Bernie's presidential campaign. Here is an objective but passionate history of the movement as founded and championed by Debs, a movement that continues to have an impact on our lives today.
