Anarchism and Other Essays Emma Goldman With Biographic Sketch by Hippolyte Havel Anarchism and Other Essays is a book by anarchist Emma Goldman, first published in 1910 by Mother Earth Publishing Association. Propagandism is not, as some suppose, a "trade," because nobody will follow a "trade" at which you may work with the industry of a slave and die with the reputation of a mendicant. The motives of any persons to pursue such a profession must be different from those of trade, deeper than pride, and stronger than interest. Contents of Anarchism and Other Essays include: Anarchism: What It Really Stands For - Minorities Versus Majorities - The Psychology of Political Violence - Prisons: A Social Crime and Failure - Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty - Francisco Ferrer and The Modern School - The Hypocrisy of Puritanism - The Traffic in Women - Woman Suffrage - The Tragedy of Woman's Emancipation - Marriage and Love - The Drama: A Powerful Disseminator of Radical Thought.

About the Author

Emma Goldman (June 27 [O.S. June 15], 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 20th century. Born in Kovno in the Russian Empire (present-day Kaunas, Lithuania), Goldman emigrated to the U.S. in 1885 and lived in New York City, where she joined the burgeoning anarchist movement in 1889. Attracted to anarchism after the Haymarket affair, Goldman became a writer and a renowned lecturer on anarchist philosophy, women's rights, and social issues, attracting crowds of thousands. She and anarchist writer Alexander Berkman, her lover and lifelong friend, planned to assassinate industrialist and financier Henry Clay Frick as an act of propaganda of the deed. Although Frick survived the attempt on his life, Berkman was sentenced to 22 years in prison. Goldman was imprisoned several times in the years that followed, for "inciting to riot" and illegally distributing information about birth control. In 1906, Goldman founded the anarchist journal Mother Earth.
