Anarchist Voices: An Oral History of Anarchism in America

Front Cover
AK Press, 2005 - Political Science - 574 pages
5 Reviews

This book contains 180 interviews conducted over a period of 30 years. The interviewees were active between the 1880s and the 1930s and represent all schools of anarchism. Each of the six thematic sections begins with an explanatory essay, and each interview with a biographical note. Their stories provide a wealth of personal detail about such anarchist luminaries as Emma Goldman and Sacco and Vanzetti. This work of impeccable scholarship is an invaluable resource not only for scholars of anarchism but also for those studying immigration, ethnic politics, education, and labor history.

Paul Avrich is a professor of history at Queens College and the Graduate School of the City University of New York.
