Unlike any other collection of Goldman’s work, Red Emma Speaks presents in a single, handy volume the full sweep of her opinions and personality. In addition to nine essays from Goldman’s own 1910 collection, Anarchism and Other Essays, three dramatic sections from her 1931 autobiography, Living My Life, and the afterword to her My Disillusionment in Russia (which the collapse of the Soviet Union later revealed as prescient), this book contains sixteen more pieces covering a great range of subjects, assembled here for the first time to offer a rich composite or Goldman’s life and thought. Red Emma speaks on: anarchism, sex, prostitution, marriage, jealousy, prisons, religion, schools, violence, war, communism, and much more.
This new third edition, containing a new foreword by Alix Kates Shulman and more accessible source listings, has been revised to situate the works more precisely in light of burgeoning Goldman scholarship.
