A History of Utah Radicalism: Startling, Socialistic, and Decidedly Revolutionary
by McCormick, John S. and John R. Sillito
Logan, UT: Utah State University Press, 2011. First edition. Hardcover. As new/as new. SIGNED. 477pp. Octavo [24 cm]; maroon cloth boards with gold stamped title on the spine. Signed by John S. McCormick and John R. Sillito on the title page. From back cover: "Utah, known in the twenty-first century as a conservative state, has a long tradition of radical social movements. Early Mormon settlers set a precedent with the United Order and other experiments with a socialist economy. The tradition continued into the more recent past with anti-war, anti-apartheid, and other leftist radicals. Over its history, Utah radicalism has usually reflected international developments. Recounting that long history, John McCormick and John Sillito focus especially on the Socialist Party of America, which reached a peak of political influence in the first two decades of the twentieth century -- in Utah and across the nation -- as over one hundred Socialists were elected to office in Utah towns and cities, several of which they controlled.
