Prison blossoms anarchist voices from the American past by Alexander Berkman( )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1892, unrepentant anarchists Alexander Berkman, Henry Bauer, and Carl Nold were sent to the Western Pennsylvania State Penitentiary for the attempted assassination of steel tycoon Henry Clay Frick. Searching for a way to continue their radical politics and to proselytize among their fellow inmates, these men circulated messages of hope and engagement via primitive means and sympathetic prisoners. On odd bits of paper, in German and in English, they shared their thoughts and feelings in a handwritten clandestine magazine called "Prison Blossoms." This extraordinary series of essays on anarchism and revolutionary deeds, of prison portraits and narratives of homosexuality among inmates, and utopian poems and fables of a new world to come not only exposed the brutal conditions in American prisons, where punishment cells and starvation diets reigned, but expressed a continuing faith in the "beautiful ideal" of communal anarchism

Vindication of the rights of woman with strictures on political and moral subjects by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )
26 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Writing in an age when the call for the rights of man had brought revolution to America and France, Mary Wollstonecraft produced her own declaration of female independence in 1792. Passionate and forthright, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman attacked the prevailing view of docile, decorative femininity, and instead laid out the principles of emancipation: an equal education for girls and boys, an end to prejudice, and for women to become defined by their profession, not their partner. Mary Wollstonecraft's work was received with a mixture of admiration and outrage - Walpole called her 'a hyena in petticoats' - yet it established her as the mother of modern feminism
Mary Wollstonecraft : a revolutionary life by Janet Todd( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mary Wollstonecraft was the first major feminist in England, author of the pioneering Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792. This biography argues that her life and letters are her most lasting legacy." "This biography stresses too her tortured relations with her family, arguing that her resentment of her brother, Ned, and his advantages as an adored boy fuelled her intellectual life. It especially relates her involvement with her two sisters, whom she mothered, dominated, and wounded. Because they shared her volatile, depressive, and self-dramatizing temperament and were caught on the edge of Mary's tumultuous life, their letters declare what she herself might have been without her special energy and zest." "This biography, which makes full use of all her writings, also compares her with other women who came into her orbit: the clever, tragic Fanny Blood, so intensely loved and so betrayed, the pretty young Amelia Alderson, who admired and recoiled from the unconventional, and Mary Hays, caught in the same intellectual and sexual dilemmas but without Wollstonecraft's glamour."--Jacket
