My review of “The Edge of Anarchy,” by Jack Kelly, for the WSJ

Here’s “Blood on the Tracks,” my review of The Edge of Anarchy: the Railroad Barons, the Gilded Age, and the Greatest Labor Uprising in America by Jack Kelly, on page A17 of the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. I enjoyed this one. Kelly does a fine job telling the story of this important-but-neglected episode.
