Summary
Spanning the period between the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and the years just after World War I, Against The Day moves from the labor troubles in Colorado to turn-of-the-century New York to London, Venice and Vienna, the Balkans, Central Asia, Siberia, Mexico during the revolution, Paris, silent-era Hollywood, and one or two places not strictly speaking on the map at all. With a worldwide disaster looming just a few years ahead, it is a time of unrestrained corporate greed, false religiosity, moronic fecklessness, and evil intent in high places.
