Briefly inscribed by the author on the front cover. Panken was a major figure in the Socialist Party of America in the first third of the Twentieth Century. He served as a municipal court judge in New York City for ten years and ran for many other higher offices as the Socialist candidate unsuccessfully. He was eventually pushed out of the party late in his career and founded the Social Democratic Federation. Sadly he was also active in the anti-Zionist camp.
