Abstract:

Inspired by his Quaker background, Hacker worked to end slavery, poverty, and inequality of women through his writing. He spoke out against prisons, advocating instead for reform and education. He broke with all forms of organized religion and urged people to leave their churches and find moral direction from within. He promoted no political party, believing people would be better off without government. He was in favor of land for all. The most controversial of Hacker's radical ideas, however--and the one that lost him the most readers--was his advocacy for peace as the country headed toward Civil War.

Good social history

by Percephone2 (WorldCat user published 2019-05-24) Excellent Permalink

This is a well-written biography of a forgotten 19th century radical journalist. For anyone interested in abolitionists, prison reform, early anarchist thought, or Maine/New England history will enjoy this book.
