Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years; Volume 2: Making Speech Free, 1902–1909


Product Information

"Extends many of the themes introduced in the previous volume, including Goldman's evolving attitudes toward political violence and social reform, intensified now by documentary accounts of the fomenting revolution in Russia and the legal opposition toward anarchism and labor organizing in the United States. Always an impassioned defender of free expression, Goldman launched her magazine Mother Earth in 1906 with a desire to " bring radical thought into wider circulation". Its pages brought together modern literary and cultural ideas with a radical social agenda, quickly becoming a platform for her feminist critique, among her many other challenges to the status quo. With abundant examples from her writings and speeches, this volume details Goldman's emergence as one of American history's most fiercely outspoken opponents of hypocrisy and pretension in politics and public life."

Edited by Candace Falk, with Barry Pateman and Jessica Moran. University of Illinois Press, 2008.
