Written by a lifelong Robert Tressel enthusiast, this investigative biography tells the story of an elusive literary figure and his classic book.

This new edition traces Tressell's life and work, ranging from his upbringing in Ireland to his political organizing and writing. Also included is the history of the publication of his socialist classic Philanthropists.
