Edited By Agnieszka Malek and Dorota Praszalowicz

The contributions in this book focus on U.S. migration policies, receiving society, ethnic communities and return migration. The authors analyze various aspects of migratory history ranging from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. They cover such topics as the times when Eastern European immigrants in the USA encountered hostility and marginalization, the efforts to create American Polonia military formations during the WWI, the problem of ethnic mobilization among Ukrainian political migrants in the U.S. as well as how state policies influence the movement of people. All the contributions are extended and revised versions of the papers presented at the 7th Workshop American Ethnicity and Ethnic Community Building.

Immigrant Radicalism Revisited: Tracing the Origins of the Haymarket Anarchists’ Autobiographies

Abstract: The text gives a short outline of the immigrant radicals’ community, its context in Chicago as well as connections to European radicalism(s). I identify Theodor Cuno – well-known labor leader and by then journalist working for the socialist New Yorker Volkszeitung who was sent to Chicago to cover the Haymarket Trial – as the instigator of the autobiographies.

Keywords: anarchism, radicalism, Haymarket Trial, German immigrants
