“Impossibilist” Crusader – A Book Review

August 3, 2021

E.T. Kingsley led the Socialist Party of Canada and edited the Western Clarion

Ravi Malhotra and Benjamin Isitt, Able to Lead: Disablement, Radicalism, and the Political Life of E.T. Kingsley (Vancouver: UBC Press, 2021).

Eugene Thornton “E.T.” Kingsley (1856-1929) was a sharp-tongued orator in British Columbia political circles and an equally sharp-penned editor of the socialist Western Clarion in the early 20th century. Uniquely, Able to Lead probes his role in the divisive left politics of Pacific Northwest labor history through multiple historical lenses.
