Reviews - What do customers think about Vision on Fire: Emma Goldman on the Spanish Revolution?

A gripping account of the Spanish Civil War  Feb 6, 2007
From agricultural collectives to socialized industry to the role of women in the revolution, Emma Goldman details the heart-wrenching struggles of the Spanish people fighting heroically against social reaction. While we should no doubt be wary of left sectarianism, there is certainly much we can learn from Goldman's insights on the problems with coalition politics. As we now know, the libertarian socialist movement in Spain was destroyed not only by Franco, but by Russian betrayal. Though this book is about a war that took place some 70 years ago, it will resonate nevertheless today with feminists, union organizers, peace activists, and anti-fascists working to build a new, better, more democratic society. As these writings are some of Emma Goldman's last, they will be of much importance to radical scholars interested in her life and legacy. In addition, David Porter intersperses throughout this book useful commentary that helps to contextualize her writings. In short, this book is an inspiring tribute to a passionate woman who despite serious obstacles of poverty, sexism, and political repression lived her life in defense of the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed.
