"Jack London (1876 -1916) found fame with his wolf-dog tales and sagas of the frozen North, but Cecelia Tichi challenges the longstanding view of London as merely a mass-market producer of potboilers. A onetime child laborer, London led a life of poverty in the Gilded Age before rising to worldwide acclaim for stories, novels, and essays designed to hasten the social, economic, and political advance of America. In this major reinterpretation of London's career, Tichi examines how the beloved writer leveraged his written words as a force for the future" -- Provided by publisher.

Wow, Prof. Tichi [Vanderbilt University] most certainly delivers with a wonderful, easily flowing accounting of one of America's greatest socialists and muckrakers, not to mention exciting author.
20 stars for a magnificent achievement by the good professor. For those Americans who know little of their history [hate to contemplate that number] this is the book for them!
