This biography of George Henry Evans examines his life as a newspaperman, activist, and social reformer in New York City from 1829-1849. The text describes Evans' advocacy of the rights of labor to organize, free land for settlers, and equality of opportunity for all men and women. Pilz (history, North Iowa Area Community College) contends that Evans was "not radical, but conservative, in that he strove to return to the enlightenment-inspired republicanism that had, in his view, been usurped by unjust institutions and provided unfair advantages to a minority, namely bankers, large employers and landholders, and political parties" (from the introduction).
