Scott Nearing (1883-1983) was a left intellectual and prolific writer on a vast array of subjects. He came to prominence for his outspoken rejection of World War One, a pacifist position he retained his whole life. Joining the Socialist Party and teaching at the Rand School, Nearing was indicted, like so many leftists, under the Espionage Act. Nearing was deeply sympathetic to the Bolshevik Revolution, though he remained in the SP until 1923. His pacifism meant his application to join the Communist Party was at first rejected, though he eventually became a Party member writing for the Daily Worker until he left/was expelled in 1930. Nearing remained a committed left activist and writer, even after ‘going back to the land’ and embracing vegetarianism in the 1930s. He traveled and wrote widely in the post-World War Two era of the Socialist Bloc. Nearing’s work and ideas gained new interest with the New Left, and he was prominent as an elder of the pacifist anti-Vietnam War movement and has a column in Monthly Review. He is the author of well over 100 books and pamphlets.
