Library Journal
Morton's brief history places Goldman in a revealingly mainstream context within American leftism in order to demonstrate that, while Goldman may have felt ``nowhere at home'' politically, her brand of anarchism was most representative of American radicalism. Relying largely upon Goldman's own writings and more deeply detailed studies such as Alice Wexler's Emma Goldman in America ( LJ 9/15/84) and Alix Kates Shulman's To the Barricades: The Anarchist Life of Emma Goldman (1971. o.p.), Morton serves up a useful survey of American leftist activism at the turn of the century and finds in hindsight stronger ties between anarchists and the left than were created by deliberate organization. This treatment will be of most interest to collections serving undergraduates and general readers.-- Susan E. Parker, Harvard Law Sch. Lib.
