The Right to Be Lazy (Paperback)
At once a masterpiece of critical theory and rip-roaring radical humor, this is one of the most spirited attacks on the notion of the work ethic ever to be published. Featuring a revised edition of the original English translation by Charles Hope Kerr, this collection also includes four of Paul Lafargue's lesser-known critiques (including the "Catechism for Investors"), as well as a biographical sketch by longtime Wobbly organizer Fred Thompson and a new introduction. Released in collaboration with Kerr Company to celebrate their 125th anniversary year.
Paul Lafargue (1842?-1911) was a Cuban-born socialist revolutionary.
