Review

"A vast sourcebook of fascinating newspaper articles, letters, trial transcripts, and speeches... especially instructive in today's climate of constricted civil liberties."--Utne Reader -- Review

Book Description

Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years reconstructs the life of Emma Goldman through significant texts and documents. These volumes collect personal letters, lecture notes, newspaper articles, court transcripts, government surveillance reports, and numerous other documents, many of which appear here in English for the first time. Supplemented with thorough annotations, multiple appendixes, and detailed chronologies, the texts bring to life the memory of this singular, pivotal figure in American and European radical history.

Volume 1: Made for America, 1890-1901 introduces readers to the young Emma Goldman as she begins her association with the international anarchist movement and especially with the German, Jewish, and Italian immigrant radicals in New York City. From early on, Goldman's movement through political and intellectual circles is marked by violence, from the attempted murder of industrialist Henry Clay Frick by Goldman's lover, Alexander Berkman, to the assassination of President William McKinley, in which Goldman was falsely implicated. The documents surrounding these events illuminate Goldman's struggle to balance anarchism's positive gains and its destructive costs. This volume introduces many of the themes that would pervade much of Goldman's later writings and speeches: the untold possibilities of anarchism; the transformative power of literature; the interplay of human relationships; and the importance of free speech, education, labor, women's freedom, and radical social reform.

Format: Hardcover
"Highly recommended" --'Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries'

"This collection is an excellent overview of Goldman's early years...recommended for larger public and all academic libraries." --'Library Journal'

"A vast sourcebook of fascinating newspaper articles, letters, trial transcripts, and speeches...especially instructive in today's climate of constricted civil liberties" --Christ Dodge, 'Utne Reader'

"This book definitely shows better than any work previously published, including Goldman's own autobiography, her splendid achievement during this early decade as an emerging anarchist." --John Patten, 'Anarchist Studies'

"The end result of the documents as presented and the scholarly apparatus is material in a highly accessible form (especially for the general reader), but which nonetheless provides leads for the scholarly researcher" --Nancie Marie Robertson, 'Documentary Editing'

"The volumes expand access to materials essential to understanding American history, especially struggles over radical politics, the position of women, free speech, violence as a means of social change, government repression, and the place of the individual in American myth and culture. The [Emma Goldman Papers Project] sheds as much light on Goldman's America as on the woman herself." --'Documentary Editing'

"The sustained introduction in each volume provides an interpretive for understanding [Goldman's] life and documents. The documents themselves allow the reader to develop his or her own analysis of Goldman.
