Click for larger imageTimothy Messer-Kruse, author of the new University of Illinois Press book The Haymarket Conspiracy: Transatlantic Anarchist Networks, was interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition about his struggle to change the Wikipedia entry for the Haymarket Affair to reflect new research about the historic event.
