Within the popular consciousness, Emma Goldman has become something of an icon, a symbol for rebellion and women's rights. But there has been surprisingly little substantive analysis of her influence on social, political, and feminist theory. In Feminist Interpretations of Emma Goldman, Weiss and Kensinger present essays that resist a simplistic understanding of Goldman and instead attempt to examine her thinking in its proper social, historical, and philosophical context. Only by considering the sources, influences, and specific significance of Goldman's ideas can her proper place in feminist theory be truly understood.

In addition to the editors, the contributors are Martha A. Ackelsberg, Kathryn Pyne Addelson, Lynne M. Adrian, Berenice A. Carroll, Voltairine de Cleyre, Janet E. Day, Candace Falk, Kathy E. Ferguson, Marsha Aileen Hewitt, Lori Jo Marso, Jonathan McKenzie, Alix Kates Shulman, Craig Stalbaum, Jason Wehling, and Alice Wexler.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume is a treasure and a treat! Everyone who has ever fallen under the spell of Emma Goldman will love this collection. Its rich and diverse selections develop the theme of anarchism, its many ramifications in Emma Goldman's thought, and the relevance of her ideas today. The essays are very accessible for use in teaching--clearly written, well-argued, informative. A truly outstanding collection, from beginning to end."

--Claudia Card, Emma Goldman Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin, Madison


"The centrality of Goldman's work, rather than her personal life, is a refreshing shift, making room to explore new territory in the scholarship of this almost mythical figure."

--Colleen Martell, Feminist Teacher
