The essays outline Goldman's anarchist views on a number of subjects, most notably the oppression of women and perceived shortcomings of first wave feminism, but also prisons, political violence, sexuality, religion, nationalism and art theory. Hippolyte Havel contributed a short biography of Goldman to the anthology.

Anarchism and Other Essays was first published by her own publishing house, Mother Earth. Havel provides a detailed biography of Emma Goldman and ends with a stirring call to emancipate humanity. It opens with an introduction by Hippolyte Havel, a Czech anarchist who lived in Greenwich Village in New York. He was a great friend of the playwright, Eugene O'Neill, who based some of the characters in his plays on Havel. Emma Goldman's preface describes her own journey and motives. Twelve chapters delineate Goldman's philosophy and ideas.

Anarchism and Other Essays provides a fascinating look into revolutionary issues at the turn of the century, a prophetic view of the social and economic future, much of which we have seen take place, and above all, a glimpse into the mind of an extraordinary woman: brilliant, provocative, dedicated, passionate, and what used to be called "high-minded.

Anarchism and Other Essays (Dover Books on History, Political and Social Science). A masterpiece, pure and simple- that's the best way to describe this book. Emma Goldman was a great champion of freedom, and a martyr for it, as well. America's near silence regarding this great hero is shameful. Read this book- and see the movie "Reds" and you'll know wh. f course, you'll find things to disagree with in this book, but the woman's committment to true freedom is undeniable.

Destruction and violence! How is the ordinary man to know that the most violent element in society is ignorance; that it's power of destruction is the very thing Anarchism is combating? - Emma Goldman, from "Anarchism: What It Really Stands For" From the turn of the 20th century to the turn of the 21st, the fiery words of "notorious" anarchist Emma Goldman continue to echo with passion, insight, and intelligence. Beyond the title essay, Goldman's impassioned calls for equality, individual freedom, and social justice encompass: . Minorities versus Majorities . The Psychology of Political Violence . Prisons: A Social Crime and Failure . Patriotism: A Menace to Liberty . The Hypocrisy of Puritanism . The Traffic in Women . The Tragedy of Women's Emancipation . Marriage and Love . The Drama: A Powerful Disseminator of Radical Thought . and more. They were prophetic when they were first published in 1910, but these essays demonstrate that even today Goldman, a thinker of profound wisdom, has not yet seen her time come. Also available from Cosimo Classics: The Social Significance of Modern Drama, by Emma Goldman. 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).

Currently, as we sense the decline of the labor movement, the fraying of the social safety net, the widening of income gaps, the disappearance of the middle class and the rise of Tea Party and Libertarian philosophies, this woman and this era, (1890's through 1930's), offer interesting, pertinent and surprising insights and parallels.

This work includes Emma Goldman's essays, and also addresses Emma Goldman's life and activities, and so it embraces as it must her thoughts and feelings, her formal and informal statements, and a complete range of her writings, speeches and public utterances. It is not a close parsing of the differences amongst the intellectuals on the finer points of Marxist theory, a topic that is probably of little interest much less application for today's reader, but it will inform your understanding of anarchy as a school of thought.

The book does present a vibrant and fascinating picture of a woman who was of her time and yet well ahead of her time. It captures the political excitement and hysteria and ferment that marked the 1890'ss, and it calmly and clearly explains some of the main lines of thought that we now lump together under the vaguely misunderstood heading of "anarchism".

There is much to think about here, and it is a pleasure to recapture and appreciate who Emma Goldman was and what she accomplished.

This is a very nice Kindle find, and worth a look. The writing is crisp and feels very modern despite the book's age. While the author clearly admires Emma Goldman, this is no hagiography, and while the book is sympathetic to the anarchist cause it is not unreliable or exaggerated in its claims. It would seem that this would serve as a solid introduction and guide to the politics of this largely forgotten, or at least overlooked, period in U.S. history. That seems a solid basis for recommending this book to the interested reader.

This is NOT the original "Anarchism and Other Essays." Whoever put this together self-published it and it DOES NOT INCLUDE one essay, and the other essays are titled incorrectly.

DO NOT BUY.

This particular book is a great introduction into Emma Goldman's world. It's definitely not an Anarchism 101 but the novice will be able to grasp Goldman's version of Anarcha-Feminism. Two things I should mention: 1.) It's cheap price is appealing and the reason for is printed on demand through Create Space. 2.) Because it's independently created its poorly proofread. Honestly not even sure the person the typed this actually read through his final product. A lot of typos. But if this doesn't bother you, then the cost savings is worth the loss.

What I've gleaned from this book, as far as I have gotten, is that we, as a civilization, have not progressed very much. Emma's disappointment with the citizenry of her age, that she describes, could and does apply to the citizenry of today. She sees what's swept under the rug, and it's what we've been seeing these days. History repeating itself.

The most important thing about these essays is that they are still directly relevant in a hundred years time. The anarchist and socialist Emma is a passionate critic of puritanical hypocrisy about sex, the abuse of women and the working men and of how those in power incite wars and use patriotism to hide it, or the cruelty of the prison system.

Goldman's anarchism is consistent, perhaps almost to a fault. And it is impressive how very well she understood the value of freedom and every man's right to pursue his/her happiness. She lived in the period of self-righteous greed and militarism that was the late Gilded Age and one of the most relevant times of history to understand "what went wrong" with corporativism and mixed economic policies the following century. These essays are a series of criticisms of power in its religious, political, military, corporativist, and legal forms.

I truly enjoyed reading her tenacity of thought and I admire the fact that in many ways she was the first in the United States to fight for ideas which are still important today. A must read.

Just because it's old, doesn't devalue it. Emma wrote in readable English. By that, I mean she didn't have the annoying and iconic high diction of many authors of her time (compare to Ambrose Bierce). You aren't supposed to just agree with the whole book and all the ideas because anarchism is always changing, adapting, and new threats are added all the time. Emma probably could never have conceived of what the modern State has become - so don't use this as a handbook, and FFS, don't use this and become an armchair politician, or worse, an armchair insurrectionist. Please. There's enough. Just use Emma's work to open your mind to some new yet old ideas during the golden age of Anarchist theory.

Book came extremely damaged. Pages ripped, bent, etc. Cover was creased and torn. Spine was also very damaged and peeling. Also not a 1st edition anything: simply a forgotten school copy of a wonderful book; so damaged it look like it was recovered from a trash can. I intended this for a gift and had to go buy something else!
This book is an eye opener

"SPOILER"
Especially her explanation of the American prison system in the 1920, where she explains that the prisoners were taught skills displacing women from the workforce when they exited prison, this lead to them having very poor salaries (back then women were paid much less). This lead to the working class hating the prisoners because their salaries were decreased (displaced wifes) and it made the x prisoners continue to commit crimes. As a result the privately owned prisons were guaranteed to get cheap force labor back. And the working class waited all it's energy hating the disenfranchised instead of the ruling elite... Now 100 years later America has more prisoners pr capita than any other country, so obviously this successful business strategy has been expanded quite substantially
