Abstract

Emma Goldman was born in Lithuania in 1869, and emigrated to America in 1885. She spent her adult life fighting for her chosen ideologies. Goldman (d. 1940) had no qualms using violence as a means to an end, and was imprisoned several times. Ironically, her biography was so large and expensive, that it was ‘kept …out of the hands of general readers and students who might otherwise have drawn sustenance and inspiration from its riches in American radical thought and action, labor history, feminism, and free-speech fights, its data on social hypocrisy, vigilante and official oppression, and the like’ (Editor’s note). On page 56 here, Goldman tells of her desire for ‘freedom’ and ‘self-expression’.
