"Anarchism and Other Essays" was written by Emma Goldman, a fiery personality whose book is as important today as it was when first published in 1917. In this classic book, Goldman discusses what anarchy is and what it stands for. "Anarchism and Other Essays" also features other hard-hitting essays about the prison system, the potentially destructive concepts of patriotism, and the hypocrisy of Puritanism. Historically, Emma Goldman remains one of the most important-yet obscure--figures in American history. Her anarchist thought, as expressed in "Anarchism and Other Essays," is as relevant today as it was when she wrote it. In an age where political apathy, intellectual ignorance and spiritual corruption are the failings of modern civilization, Emma Goldman's enlightenment thought is illuminating in its message of the power of direct action as she so lucidly described. This book is necessary reading for anyone truly interested or involved in altruistic direct action.

About the Author

Anarchist and feminist EMMA GOLDMAN (1869-1940) is one of the towering figures in global radicalism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born in Lithuania, she emigrated to the United States as a teenager, was deported in 1919 for her criticism of the U.S. military draft in World War I, and died in Toronto after a globetrotting life. An early advocate of birth control, women's rights, and workers unions, she was an important and influential figure in such far-flung geopolitical events as the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Civil War. Among her many books are My Disillusionment in Russia (1925) and Living My Life (1931).
