Bill Adler discusses his book, "The Man Who Never Died: The Life, Times and Legacy of Joe Hill"

The guest is Bill Adler, author of "The Man Who Never Died: The Life, Times, and Legacy of Joe Hill, American Labor Icon."

In 1914, Joe Hill was convicted of murder in Utah and sentenced to death by firing squad, igniting international controversy. Many believed Hill was innocent, condemned for his association with the Industrial Workers of the World -- the radical Wobblies. Now, following four years of intensive investigation, William M. Adler gives us the first full-scale biography of Joe Hill, and presents never before published documentary evidence that comes as close as one can to definitively exonerating him.

Recently, Harvey spoke at Occupy Wall Street. They agree that this should be part of the Wall Street occupiers' demands and Harvey explains why.
