In Blood Passion, journalist Scott Martelle explores this little-noted tale of political corruption and repression and immigrants'' struggles against dominant social codes of race, ethnicity, and class. More than a simple labor dispute, the events surrounding Ludlow embraced some of the most volatile social movements of the early twentieth century, pitting labor activists, socialists, and anarchists against the era''s powerful business class, including John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and helped give rise to the modern twins of corporate public relations and political "spin."
From the Publisher:
Offers an in-depth account of the violent strike that plagued Colorado's southern coal district, which in April 1914 culminated in a full-scale battle between armed strikers and the Colorado National Guard, the burning of the strikers' tent colony in Ludlow, and the deaths of two women and eleven children, and launched calls for vicious guerrilla warfare on the part of union supporters.
