by Emma Goldman
In the 1890s and for years thereafter, America reverberated with the name of the notorious Anarchist, feminist, revolutionist and agitator, Emma Goldman. This book is a collection of her remarkably penetrating essays, far in advance of their time
Twelve essays by the influential radical include "Marriage and Love," "The Hypocrisy of Puritanism," "The Traffic in Women," Anarchism," and "The Psychology of Political Violence." Other enduringly relevant essays examine patriotism, the failure of the penal system, and drama as a means of conveying political theory.
Emma Goldman (June 27, 1869 - May 14, 1940) was an anarchist known for her political activism, writing and speeches. She played a pivotal role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in North America and Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. Goldman was well-known during her life, described as-among other things-"the most dangerous woman in America."
