New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1936.

First Edition. Hardcover. Very good in a very good dust jacket. 352 pp, in original grey cloth.

In the original dust jacket, which is rubbed along the joints and has some scratches and one pinhole on the spine panel. Original price inked out on front flap. Jacket art by George Salter. Rideout (p. 197): "The protagonist of Red Neck...is a labor leader committed to class war but opposed to Communists because of a Socialist background... this book and the novels of Upton Sinclair are the social Socialist contributions to the radical novel in the thirties." The story recounts an unsuccessful strike by union miners in an Indiana coal town.
