Anarchism and Other Essays
By Emma Goldman
Anarchist and feminist Emma Goldman is one of the towering figures in global radicalism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. An early advocate of birth control and women's rights, as well as a dedicated anarchist, she was an important and influential figure in such far-flung events as the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Civil War. In addition to her classic essay which lays out anarchist ideals, this volume contains six other essays on prisons to marriage, direct action, violence, and sexuality.
Anarchism and Other Essays is as important today as it was when first published in 1917. In this classic book, Goldman discusses what anarchy is and what it stands for. "Anarchism and Other Essays" also features other hard-hitting essays about the prison system, the destructive obsession of patriotism, and the hypocrisy of religion. Historically, Emma Goldman remains one of the most important-yet obscure--figures in American history. Her anarchist ideas are as relevant today as it was when she wrote these essays. In an age where political apathy, intellectual ignorance and spiritual corruption are the failings of modern civilization, Emma Goldman's enlightenment thought is illuminating in its message of the power of direct action as she so lucidly described. This book is necessary reading for anyone truly interested or involved in altruistic direct action.
