Auteur: Porter, David (Ed.)
Titel: Vision on Fire
Sub titel: Emma Goldman on The Spanish Revolution
This collection features the most important writings from the turbulent last four years of Emma Goldman's life. `Vision on Fire' is the perfect complement to her celebrated autobiography, `Living My Life', and for those readers inspired by her powerful collection, Anarchism and Other Essays. David Porter reveals Goldman's struggles with the contradictions of the Spanish Revolution and her efforts to maintain integrity and vision in the heat of political activism. Contemporary readers will find Vision on Fire a high-caliber history book as well as an honest depiction of the complex world of libertarian revolution. As an official representative of the CNT-FAI during the revolution, Emma Goldman made three trips to Spain to observe first-hand the most thoroughgoing social revolution in history. Her selected writings not only chronicle the debates, fights, and revolutionary zeal of the Spanish Revolution, but provide a sophisticated dialogue concerning revolution and social change a dialogue which activists will turn to again and again as we confront these same issues in our own times, under new circumstances. The thematic chapters include: The Spanish Anarchist Movement; The New Society; Collaboration with Statist Forces; Communist Sabotage of the Spanish Revolution; The International Context; Anarchists, Violence, and War; The Role of Women in the Spanish Revolution; Overall Assessments of the Spanish Revolution; and General Reflections on Anarchism and the Movement.
