"Highly recommended" --'Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries'
"A vast sourcebook of fascinating newspaper articles, letters, trial transcripts, and speeches...especially instructive in today's climate of constricted civil liberties" --Christ Dodge, 'Utne Reader'
"This book definitely shows better than any work previously published, including Goldman's own autobiography, her splendid achievement during this early decade as an emerging anarchist." --John Patten, 'Anarchist Studies'
"A magnificently scholarly volume rich in historical information, it is a book that historians and those writing about American social movements will mine for many years to come." --Sharon Presley, 'Social Anarchism'
"This volume, along with its predecessor and the larger microfilm collection of Goldman documents, is a real achievement and a major contribution to the study of the American left. It will, one hopes, inspire scholars, teachers, and undergraduate and graduate students to explore the history of that struggle between free speech and free assembly, on the one hand, and the combined forces of power, prudery, and patriotism, on the other." --Francis G. Couvares, 'Labor History'
"The end result of the documents as presented and the scholarly apparatus is material in a highly accessible form (especially for the general reader), but which nonetheless provides leads for the scholarly researcher" --Nancie Marie Robertson, 'Documentary Editing'
"The volumes expand access to materials essential to understanding American history, especially struggles over radical politics, the position of women, free speech, violence as a means of social change, government repression, and the place of the individual in American myth and culture. The [Emma Goldman Papers Project] sheds as much light on Goldman's America as on the woman herself." --'Documentary Editing'
"The sustained introduction in each volume provides an interpretive for understanding [Goldman's] life and documents. The documents themselves allow the reader to develop his or her own analysis of Goldman." --'Documentary Editing'
"Today, those worried about governmental response to terrorism, coupled with the prevalence of anti-immigrant sentiments and laws, as well as the resistance to such efforts, can find much to mull over in these two volumes. ... The documents speak to important questions of our own times. The American reading public can be grateful to Falk and her collaborators." --'Documentary Editing'
