Ambrose Bierce is still known for his DEVIL'S DICTIONARY and "The Incident at Owl Creek Bridge," but what were his politics? To judge from this book, they were off-the-chart right-wing: This is his view of organized labor: "The rules of 'civilized warfare' we shall not observe, but shall put prisoners to death or torture them, as we please. We do not recognize a non-union man's right to labor, nor to live. The right to strike includes the right to strike hi. Doubtless all that (and "the half is not told") sounds to the unobservant like.
He wrote some of his books under the pseudonyms Dod Grile and J. Milton Sloluck. Bierce's lucid, unsentimental style has kept him popular when many of his contemporaries have been consigned to oblivion.
