Anarchism : and other essays by Emma Goldman( )

122 editions published between 1910 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,701 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( )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,236 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newspaper articles, government surveillance reports from America and Europe, dramatic court transcripts, unpublished lecture notes, and an array of other rare items and documentation.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

Living my life by Emma Goldman( Book )

134 editions published between 1931 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radical thinker and writer Emma Goldman presents her life story and memories in Living My Life, first published in 1931. Originally two volumes, it is published here as a combined edition. From her arrival in New York as a 20-year-old seamstress, when she immediately launched into a life of activism and public agitation, she recalls her childhood in Lithuania, her immigration to the U.S. as a teenager, and her wild adventures as an independent and intelligent woman. An important and influential figure in such far-flung geopolitical events as the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Civil War, Goldman is one of the most storied people of the 20th century. And her story, in her own imitable words, is one of the great biographies, and one of the great personal histories of a turbulent era

Red Emma speaks : an Emma Goldman reader by Emma Goldman( Book )

16 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Bloodstained : one hundred years of Leninist counterrevolution by Iain McKay( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution, paeans to the conquering Bolsheviks will be sung. Bloodstained highlights the darker echoes coming from that event, with a mixture of classic and new essays that expose a murderous dictatorship as it developed, paving the way for Stalin, Mao, Castro, and others to slaughter and starve their opponents. The defense of this criminal enterprise, later categorized as "actually existing socialism," ends here. No more velvet-gloved hagiography. No more Lenins. Includes essays from Mark Leier, Barry Pateman, Alexander Berkman, Iain MacKay, Herman Gorter, Rudolf Rocker, Luigi Fabbri, Maurice Brinton, and more."--
