Messer-Kruse Control

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Timothy Messer-Kruse, author of The Haymarket Conspiracy. We talk about why so much of what history books say about the Haymarket Riots of 1886 is wrong, whether the convicted protestors should be viewed as left-wing martyrs or domestic terrorists, and how mainstream academics have received Messer-Kruse’s provocative work.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
