The American journalist, reformer, and labour propagandist Henry Demarest Lloyd (1847-1903), is usually recognized as the first American muckraker. During his active political propagandist career, he was recognized internationally as one of the leading figures writing in the American social and economic fields. Reprinted in this collection, with a new introduction are 13 of his contributions to the critique of American capitalism published between 1881 and 1903. In addition to the 35-page introduction are 10 pages of annotated notes and references. This collection, provides an opportunity to re-evaluate a career that is seen as central to the development of radical democratic thought in America and Europe. This study should be of interest to students and scholars of modern American and British social, cultural and economic history; to historians of trade unionism; and to the theory of 19th-century liberalism, and working class culture.
