Abstract

Studies in American Naturalism vol. 10, no. 2 The Iron Heel. To further the socialist cause, he lectured regularly on class struggle, delivering addresses titled "The Scab," "Revolution," "The Tramp," "The Class Struggle," and "How I Became a Socialist." At the height of his success, he entertained the radical socialist Emma Goldman and travelled to Mexico, once again enduring dysentery to support a revolutionary cause. Though he resigned from the Socialist Party in his final year of life (1916), London's revolutionary zeal had not lessened; he simply lamented the party's compromising policies, and his radical energies had turned to the land, to his Beauty Ranch, in Glen Ellen, California, where London, as an experimenting agronomist, believed that a return to the soil could be the basis for a new economic order. For London, the ranch was a microcosm of the world, and he was a steward of the land. Experimenting with terrace farming, crop rotation, soil enhancement, and modern forms of animal husbandry, London was an early conservationist, subscribing to numerous agricultural journals and befriending his botanist neighbor Luther Burbank. Besides raising livestock that won prizes at the state fair, he planned fantastic ventures, a grape juice business
