Dystopian sci-fi novel. The character agitates and struggles for a socialist revolution against an oligarchy. Envisages fascism, despite being written many years prior to its advent.

The Iron Heel describes the rise of Socialism in America, and how the wealthy oligarchy react by imposing a Dictatorship that would very closely resemble the Fascist regimes which would arise in Europe after the novel was written.
