9780877320739: Marcus Thrane: A Norwegian Radical in America (Biographical Series, Special Publications)

Thrane's years in America - from 1864 until his death in 1890 - went largely unnoticed by a homeland engaged in great social and economic change. Only later did a burgeoning social-democratic labor movement gratefully acknowledge his pioneering agitation.
Discontent bred by Thrane's activities and those of his followers contributed to swell the emigrant ranks. The Norwegian-American community Thrane joined was still as an early stage of its development. His role within the community, as a social reformer, newspaperman, and dramatic artist, is carefully considered, as is Thrane's relationship with his family and fellow believers, providing us with an intimate portrait of a unique personality.Convincingly, the study suggests how his contact with influential persons of a liberal persuasion gave his ideas a broader hearing than is generally assumed. Yet the lasting impact of his message is difficult to assess. Thrane was a freethinker and a socialist and his large-minded convictions encountered a narrowness of thought that obstructed their wider acceptance.
