Anarchism and Other Essays | [Emma Goldman]

Anarchism and Other Essays

Among the men and women prominent in the public life of early 20th-century America there are but few whose names are mentioned as often as that of Emma Goldman. Yet the real Emma Goldman is almost quite unknown. Here are powerful, penetrating, prophetic essays on direct action, the role of minorities, prison reform, puritan hypocrisy, and violence.

Audible Editor Reviews

In the early 19th century, anarchist Emma Goldman was described as "the most dangerous woman in America". Her radical thought still seems highly contemporary in this audiobook, as she explores social and personal problems that are conspicuous today.

Suzanne Toren captures the politics and opinions of this seminal thinker like a powerful orator at a podium. Her bold and impeccable delivery is a fitting match for the substance of Anarchism and Other Essays, an accessible book that was clearly ahead of its time. The performance opens with an illuminating biographical sketch of Goldman and then proceeds to express Goldman's opinions on everything from imprisonment to prostitution.

Publisher's Summary

Among the men and women prominent in the public life of early 20th-century America there are but few whose names are mentioned as often as that of Emma Goldman. Yet the real Emma Goldman is almost quite unknown. The sensational press has surrounded her name with so much misrepresentation and slander, it would seem almost a miracle that, in spite of this web of calumny, the truth breaks through and a better appreciation of this much maligned idealist begins to manifest itself. Here are powerful, penetrating, prophetic essays on direct action, the role of minorities, prison reform, puritan hypocrisy, and violence.

    Story
    "A good overview of Emma Goldman's beliefs."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Anarchism and Other Essays to be better than the print version?

    There is considerable emotion and simmering anger in the narration, which there should be.


    Would you recommend Anarchism and Other Essays to your friends? Why or why not?

    If, like I, you seek to learn something about an oft misunderstood person and philosophy (Anarchism) then this book will give you some concept and right some misunderstandings.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Sometimes it got a bit monotonous and with the benefit of hindsight we can see all the flaws in Goldman's beliefs but it was a good reading.
