“The pages of The Blast seem to smell of black powder, or better, seem to have blown out of the eye of a social hurricane. A sense of absolute emergency pervades almost every column. Unlike some other radical periodicals, this was not mere prose, propped up by a pseudo-desperate baricade rhetoric. Real people were being locked-up and sentenced to death. Each issue of The Blast threatened to be the last.” – Richard Drinnon, Professor of History, Bucknell. Roll up, roll up – for the first time – the complete collection of The Blast. Read the news as it was made – including the arrest of Emma Goldman with Margaret Sanger, the political trials of labour agitators Mooney and Billing, and the exploits of the Magon brothers in Mexico and beyond. Includes 30 black and white photographs, illustrations and cartoons. Introduction by Barry Pateman
