    This is the second part of Emma Goldman’s memoirs of life as an anarchist in the early years of the Twentieth Century, and it describes the later, more “mature” (or at least older) segment of her career as a revolutionary. While it is still a thrilling, highly accessible, at times inspiring, read, it also has a somewhat more somber tone, as Emma is increasingly discouraged by what she sees in the world around her and betrayed by people she once believed in.The volume begins with the death [...]

    Emma Goldman,anarchist, had intelligence and bold determination that saved many lives and brought injustices to the surface. Her life was intertwined with that of Sasha Bernhardt, beginning at the Chicago Hay Market tragedy. Sasha, incensed by such injustices, was sentenced to 22 years for an offence legally calling for only seven. For her many attempts to achieve change, Emma was deported from the USA to Russia under horrific conditions. The truths of what hapened in the Bolshevik revolution, t [...]

    O MY GAWD.I'm so in love with Emma after reading this book. Such a fascinating book. What a life she led! And she drops so many names of other anarchists and activists that this book will be a great reference for further research. It's 950 pages but it's such a fun page turner. It's not too long.

    Red Emma's riveting and authentic account of her remarkable and highly principled life. Volume 2 details her work as a mature revolutionary and activist as well as her relationships with the great loves of her life. Not to be missed are her accounts of interactions with other famous revolutionary thinkers and activists like Peter Kropotkin. This book is a page turner.

    someday i will write an alternative history short story i came up with when i read these 2 volumes way back when

    Simply fascinating. The bulk of this volume deals with Emma's deportation and the time she spent in Bolshevik Russia. I've been meaning to study more the history of the Russian Revolution, and beginning that with the memoirs of an anarchist was accidental, but illuminating. Emma is just so brutally honest in her portrayal of herself. Her romance regarding the Revolution, and her creeping horror at seeing beneath the Soviet veneer, really made an impact on me. Reading this book, about some of the [...]

    This was my first time reading the second volume of this autobiography. In general, I enjoyed the first volume better, I think because it had more details about her personal life. Romantically, she kind of slows down at this point in her life, although I was cheered that she had an affair with someone much younger than her when she was in her 50s. The first and last parts of the book revolve mainly around her lecture tours, which I didn't find very interesting. The central part about her time sp [...]

    Not as interesting as Vol. 1, but once I picked it up, I still couldn't put it down. Emma's ability to convey anything in a captivating manner is on display, and a large portion of the book is taken up with her account of Russia in the years following the revolution of 1917. She provides an excellent first hand perspective of the hypocrisy and abuses and their variability across the country which culminates in a scathing critique of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. As such, this book's histo [...]

    I have to admit to preferring the first volume, when Emma was young and starry eyed and full of positive energy. This volume is sad and written by a woman who begins to feel defeated by the world. That said I love this way of learning history and learned more about the Russian revolution, Lenin and Trotsy than I ever thought I would. If there was a third book I would read it, but sadly this is the end of Emma's autobiography.

    Most of this part is about Goldman's time in Lenin and Trotsky's Russia. Devastating account of that despotic regime. Extremely depressing exposé of the fraud of the Russian Revolution. I can't figure out why Emma didn't join the Maknovist anarchists. I really wished she did, so sad she didn'toh, Kronstadt, oh Ukraine, oh Russia! What suffering! So sad!

    An incredible finish to nearly a 1000 page memoir of E.G. The most fascinating chapter for me was her discussion of Bolshevik Russia and the destruction of the Revolutionary ideal via the dictatorship under Lenin and Trotsky. I thought it ended rather abruptly unfortunately. I highly recommend this work. Both volumes give a tremendous history of the U.S. and world politics. I <3 Emma Goldman! :)
