Description
These volumes reconstruct the life in America of the anarchist Emma Goldman (1869-1940), a singular, pivotal figure in radical history, through significant texts and documents. They recount her evolving attitudes toward political violence and social reform and her impassioned defence of free expression. Goldman's launch of Mother Earth, 'A Monthly Magazine Devoted to Social Science and Literature', in 1906 signalled a desire to bring together literary and cultural ideas with a radical social agenda and became a platform for her many challenges to the status quo. The volumes include personal letters, lecture notes, newspaper articles, speeches, court transcripts, government surveillance reports and many other documents, and are supplemented with annotations and chronologies.
