Anarchism : and other essays by Emma Goldman( Book )

115 editions published between 1910 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays are a bit propagandistic and repetitive, but still relevant and worth reading. It was striking to me that we're still fighting many of the same battles and dealing with many of the same issues after nearly 100 years (specifically issues of sex education, gender inequality, exorbitant prison spending, and wrongful imprisonment). Even more striking is how forward-thinking Goldman was for her time. Her reduction of all struggle to class conflict is disappointing, but there are many, many points at which she thinks beyond the dominant beliefs and theories of her own time. -- Review from (June 29, 2012.)
Emma Goldman : a documentary history of the American years by Emma Goldman( Book )

27 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years redefines the historical memory of Emma Goldman and illuminates a forgotten yet influential facet of the history of American and European radicalism. This definitive multivolume work, which differs significantly from Goldman's autobiography, presents original texts--a significant group of which are published in or translated into English for the first time--anchored by rigorous contextual annotations. The distillation of years of scholarly research, these volumes include personal correspondence, newspaper articles, government surveillance reports from America and Europe, dramatic court transcripts, unpublished lecture notes, and an array of other rare items and documentation. Biographical, newspaper, and organizational appendixes are complemented by in-depth chronologies that underscore the complexity of Goldman's political and social milieu. The first volume, Made for America, 1890-1901, tracks the young Emma Goldman's introduction into the anarchist movement, features her earliest known writings in the German anarchist press, and charts her gradual emergence from the radical immigrant circles of New York City's Lower East Side into a political and intellectual culture of both national and international importance. Goldman's remarkable public ascendance is framed within a volatile period of political violence: within the first few pages, Henry Clay Frick, the anti-union industrialist, is shot by Alexander Berkman, Goldman's lover the book ends with the assassination of President William McKinley, an act in which Goldman was falsely implicated. The documents surrounding these events shed light on difficult issues--and spark an important though chilling debate about Goldman's strategy for reconciling her "beautiful vision" of anarchism and the harsh realities of her times. The documents articulate the force of Goldman's rage, tracing the development of her political and social critique as well as her originality and her remarkable ability to synthesize and popularize cutting-edge political and cultural ideas. Goldman appears as a rising luminary in the mainstream press--a voice against hypocrisy and a lightning rod of curiosity, intrigue, and sometimes fear. The volumes include newspaper accounts of the speaking tours across America that eventually established her reputation as one of the most challenging and passionate orators of the twentieth century. Themes that came to dominate Goldman's life--anarchism and its possibilities, free speech, education, the transformative power and social significance of literature, the position of labor within the capitalist economic system, the vital importance of women's freedom, the dynamics of personal relationships, and strategies for a social revolution--are among the many introduced in Made for America

Product Description: Unlike any other collection of Goldman's work, RED EMMA SPEAKS presents in a single, handy volume the full sweep of her opinions and personality. In addition to nine essays from Goldman's own 1910 collection ANARCHISM AND OTHER ESSAYS, three dramatic sections from her 1931 autobiography LIVING MY LIFE, and the Afterword to her MY DISILLUSIONMENT IN RUSSIA (which the collapse of the Soviet Union has revealed as prescient), this book contains sixteen more pieces covering a great range of subjects, assembled here for the first time to offer a rich composite of Goldman's life and thought. RED EMMA SPEAKS on: anarchism, sex, prostitution, marriage, jealousy, prisons, religion, schools, violence, war, communism, and much more. The first edition of RED EMMA SPEAKS (1972), with a biographical sketch, introduced Goldman to a new generation. The second edition (1985), enlarged to serve an exploding interest in women's studies, added three more essays plus an assessment of Goldman's feminism by Alix Kates Shulman. The present, third edition, containing a new Foreword by Shulman and more accessible source listings, has been revised to situate the works more precisely in light of a burgeoning Goldman scholarship
Living my life by Emma Goldman( Book )

108 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anarchist, journalist, drama critic, advocate of birth control and free love, Emma Goldman was the most famous'and notorious'woman in the early twentieth century. This abridged version of her two-volume autobiography takes her from her birthplace in czarist Russia to the socialist enclaves of Manhattan's Lower East Side. Against a dramatic backdrop of political argument, show trials, imprisonment, and tempestuous romances, Goldman chronicles the epoch that she helped shape: the reform movements of the Progressive Era, the early years of and later disillusionment with Lenin's Bolshevik experiment, and more. Sounding a call still heard today, Living My Life is a riveting account of political ferment and ideological turbulence. First time in Penguin Classics Condensed to half the length of Goldman's original work, this edition is accessible to those interested in the activist and her extraordinary era
