Overview

Anarchist, political orator, drama critic, theorist of revolution, advocate of birth control and free love, Emma Goldman claimed her life was woven of many "skeins." Laboring in the service of her "beautiful ideal" - anarchism, a vision of human communities free of the restraints and ills of government - she advocated just as tirelessly for the freedom to love and know beauty. This condensation of her two-volume autobiography takes her from her birthplace in czarist Russia to the socialist enclaves of Manhattan's Lower East Side. Against a backdrop of political argument, show trials, imprisonment, and tempestuous romances, Goldman chronicles the tumultuous Progressive Era and offers fascinating firsthand impressions of Lenin, Trotsky, Kropotkin, Jack London, and many other radicals of the period. An account of ideological ferment, Living My Life stands as a testament to a turbulent time and a clarion call to something forgotten in our own.

    Required Reading For Those on a Socratic Quest

    Truth pursued not possessed....Emma Goldman was the epitome of a Socratic student! The courage that flowed through her blood like water down a river has inspired me to seek to be the best, most outspoken voice challenging authority and the cheap suits that have the audacity to call themselves our 'leaders' in Washington, DC. Once you read Emma Goldman's autobiography you'll never look at mainstream propaganda history books again!

    emma goldman is my hero(ine)

    Emma Goldman was a fierce revolutionary and compassionate humanitarian. She spent every moment of her adult life fighting for 'the people,' all the while appreciating the 'finer' things in life such as literature, music, and theatre. She was a fascinating woman who led the underground activist movement for many years. She was hated and feared by many and adored by many as well. You must read this fascinating book to better understand one of the most intriguing personalities this world has ever seen.

    Great memoir

    Even abridged, Emma Goldman's memoir of life in the American anarchist movement at the turn of the century is a great read. The stories of her time in post-revolution Soviet Russia alone are worth the price. A must-read for anyone interested in the period.
