Weren't they communists/socialist? He seems to try to make them something else.
Wobblies were kind of a home grown socialists in contrast to the bolsheviks/communists. They were probably more akin to Anarchists. However, Big Bill Haywood did flee to Russia in 1921 when he was out of jail on bail and died there in 1928.

Anarchist, did you say Anarchists. Eugene and Portland are their homes. Still a strong presence. I do think Wobblies were supported by Soviet communists. So, why did James Jones devote so much ink to them. Was he a Communist sympathizer?
