Victor Berger edited the Socialist Party newspaper "The Social-Democratic Herald" in Milwaukee before being elected as the first Socialist to Congress in 1910. In 1919, Berger was re-elected to Congress despite being indicted under the Sedition Act for opposing the First World War. When Berger was convicted, the House refused to seat him and held a special election -- which Berger won. Again, Congress refused to seat him, and the seat remained vacant for almost a year until another special election was held. After his conviction for sedition was overturned, Berger was again elected to Congress on the Socialist ticket, and remained in the US House of Representatives until 1928. This volume is a collection of Berger's newspaper articles, written before and during his service in Congress, giving his views on socialism, communism, economics, corporate power, and democratic government. Edited and with new Introduction.
