The Day Wall Street Exploded
This "Book Roundtable on Beverly Gage’s [The Day Wall St
A roundtable discussion was held on Beverly Gage’s book The Day Wall Street Exploded: A Story of America in Its First Age of Terror (Oxford University Press, USA, 2009). The book examines the history of terrorism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on the 1920 Wall Street bombing. The panelists considered Professor Gage’s re-examination of the nature of class struggles, left-wing social movements, and violence and repression from the Gilded age to the immediate post-World War I years. Topics included connections made between the first Red Scare and the current war on terrorism. Three historians presented their papers on the issues raised in the book and the Professor Johnson’s son reported on the book’s suitability for a general audience. Professor Gage also commented on the discussion about her book, her first one. Then the panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. Professor Green chaired.
