Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, the Russian Jewish immigrants who were once called "the two most notorious anarchists in the United States" by the New York Times, were the most outstanding revolutionary activists of their generation. Arrested in 1917 for their anti-conscription campaign during the First World War, they were subsequently deported to Russia in the 1919 1920 Red Scare. Although they were initially optimistic about returning to Russia in the midst of social revolution, over the next two years Goldman and Berkman would come face-to-face with the contradictions of "the dictatorship of the proletariat" as they witnessed the persecution of Russian anarchists, the suppression of revolutionary labor movements, and the brutal annihilation of the 1921 Kronstadt Uprising. The two anarchists quickly learned that the Bolshevik Party's dictatorship was not the embodiment of the workers' revolution, but was in fact "the very antithesis of revolution." Through their first-hand accounts of the situation in Russia, Goldman and Berkman reminded revolutionaries everywhere that "the state whatever its name or form is ever the mortal enemy of liberty and popular self-determination" and that true social revolution can never be managed or manipulated by political parties seeking state power, but must emerge from the creative self-activity of working people themselves. This new volume collects selected writings by Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman that recount their experiences in Russia from 1920 to 1922. Famous essays like "Bolsheviks Shooting Anarchists," "The Prisons of Russia," and "There Is No Communism in Russia" are collected here alongside immortal pamphlets like The Crushing of the Russian Revolution, The Russian Tragedy, and The Kronstadt Rebellion. Selections from Emma Goldman's memoir, My Disillusionment in Russia, are also included, as well as many other documents and manuscripts.

Book Description On Our Own Authority!, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. After being deported from the United States to Russia in 1920, Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman witnessed first-hand the contradictions of Lenin s so-called dictatorship of the proletariat, the murder and imprisonment of Russian anarchists, and Trotsky s lethal suppression of the 1921 Kronstadt Uprising. While the two revolutionaries had initially offered critical support to the Bolshevik regime, the tyranny they witnessed in the so-called worker s state reaffirmed their belief that true social revolution can never be managed or manipulated by political parties seeking state power. When they escaped Russia in 1922, Goldman and Berkman authored numerous pamphlets and articles about what they had seen, and each published a diary of their experiences. Their work in this period had international impact among anarchists and other revolutionaries who were beginning to view Lenin s Russia more critically.
