[Abstract]The failure of American Socialism has been a subject that historians of labor and the left have been writing about for many decades. Ira Kipnis, James Weinstein, John Laslett, and Mari Jo Buhle bring sharply different perspectives to this problem and the ways in which class, gender, labor politics, ethnicity, and factionalism framed the rise and decline of American socialism in the years between 1870 and 1920. The paper compares the way in which these four historians see the role of socialism in American life.
