Jimmie Higgins

by Upton Sinclair

"Jimmie Higgins" is the fellow who does the hard work in the job of waking up the workers. Jimmie hates war--all war--and fights against it with heart and soul. But war comes, and Jimmie is drawn into it, whether he will or no. He has many adventures--strikes, jails, munitions explosions, draft-boards, army-camps, submarines and battles. "Jimmie Higgins Goes to War" at last, and when he does he holds back the German army and wins the battle of "Chatty Terry." But then they send him into Russia to fight the Bolsheviki, and there "Jimmie Higgins Votes for Democracy."A picture of the American working-class movement during four years of world-war; all wings of the movement, all the various tendencies and clashing impulses are portrayed.
