Memoirs of a Nobody: The Missouri Years of an Austrian Radical, 1849–1866

Radical editor, Republican Party operative, freethinking colleague of Karl Marx-Austrian Henry Boernstein was hardly a "nobody," but his is one of the nineteenth century's great unknown lives. Boernstein became a leader of the large German-speaking immigrant population in 1850s St. Louis and published his memoirs in two volumes in 1881. Steven Rowan's new translation and single-volume abridgment of the autobiography focuses on Boernstein's often-turbulent career in Missouri.
