Overview

Emma Goldman: American Individualist, Second Edition
By John C. Chalberg
Edited by Mark C. Carnes

Library of American Biography

Longman is proud to publish the Library of American Biography series, offering ideal reading for introductory and upper-level courses in American history. These concise biographies focus on individuals whose actions and ideas greatly influenced American history and relate the lives of the subjects to the issues and events of their times.

Under new series editor Mark C. Carnes, the Library of American Biography series is being revised and updated with today’s students in mind. All volumes are now offered at a lower price, and each new volume includes Study and Discussion Questions, which encourage readers to reflect on the role of the profiled individual in shaping American history.


One of the most colorful, controversial and radical figures in American history, Emma Goldman challenged the legitimacy of religion, government, and private property in the United States. Imprisoned, tried, and later deported for her beliefs, the Goldman story is a window through which students will see a better picture of the history of American radicalism, the history of civil liberties in America, and the history of American foreign policy.

New to the second edition:

  • A fresh Author’s Preface and new Afterward reflect the most recent research on Emma Goldman’s legacy and place Goldman into better historical perspective.
  • An updated A Note on the Sources section highlights the most recent and up-to-date scholarship.
  • Study and Discussion Questions at the end of the book help students check their reading and comprehension. These questions may also be used to facilitate discussions in the classroom or in student study groups.
