Miller's book, 'The President and the Assassin: McKinley, Terror and Empire at the Dawn of the American Century, gives an account of the years leading up to the assassination of President William McKinley by Leon Czolgosz in September 1901. According to Miller, Czolgosz was a "seething young anarchist" who "emerged from the shadows of the underclass with murder in his heart." Miller characterized Czolgosz as believing that the "headlong rush" of the United States "toward a prominent place in a new world order had extracted a bitter price from the workingman ... and there existed no better means to set things straight than by murdering the leader of the United States."
