With his with and unique ability to illuminate history from below, Howard Zinn dramatizes the life of a remarkable woman. Emma Goldman, the anarchist, feminist and free spirit, was exiled from the United States because of her outspoken views. She seemed tireless as she travelled, discussing birth control ('A woman should decide for herself'), the falsity of marriage as an institution ('Nothing to do with love'), patriotism ('the last refuge of a scoundrel') and more. This book will be of interest to feminists, historians and revolutionaries alike.
