Does anyone know of some good treatments of it?

I have read, and own, Death in the Haymarket by James Green and a few dumbed-down analyses but would like to explore the topic more.

Well, lets see...

There's Paul Avrich's The Haymarket tragedy, The Haymarket scrapbook edited by David R. Roediger, Bruce C. Nelson's Beyond the martyrs : a social history of Chicago's anarchists, 1870-1900 and Carl S. Smith's Urban disorder and the shape of belief : the Great Chicago Fire, the Haymarket bomb, and the model town of Pullman.

There's also the rather dated The history of the Haymarket affair by Henry David and if you can find them, The accused, the accusers and The Famous speeches of the eight Chicago anarchists in court. The latter seems to have been republished so it might not be so hard.

If you have access to a university library, you may be able to find the Spring 1986 special issue of International Labor and Working Class History (no.29).

Finally, there is Martin Duberman's novel Haymarket

I don't think "The Famous Speeches of our martyrs" has been republished. There are three here that I know of, with publication dates of 1899, 1910, and 1912.

But I do know that you can get John Peter Altgeld's Reasons for Pardoning the Haymarket Anarchists, from Charles H. Kerr Publishing, which also has other books about Haymarket.

Frank Harris wrote a novel about the event,
The Bomb.

Now that I've looked a little more carefully, there are two Arno editions that I think I was vaguely thinking about: The Accused and the accusers; the famous speeches of the eight Chicago anarchists in court. With an introd. by Leon Stein and Philip Taft; New York, Arno, 1969 and Famous speeches of the eight Chicago anarchists compiled by Lucy Parsons; New York, Arno Press, 1969. (from the Library of Congress)

I'm not sure of the difference between the two, and I think Arno is out of business, but they still should be easier to find than the 100 year old editions. For instance, Abebooks lists a copy of The Accused and the Accusers. Or you could spend $2000 on the 1886 edition.

eromsted, the 1886 editions is ONLY $1999.95.

I gotta hit the lottery.

There was a story on "The History Detectives" about that book wasn't there?
