I loved this book. It is just a sum of goldman's writings and some analysis of the spanish revolution. Great insight over the debates that surronded this pivotal historical event. Easy to read, a very human rendering of revolution.

Very interesting history, but Goldman's arid moral idealism is on full display throughout.
Whoever put this work together did an excellent job.

Long. Not a bad thing. My first reading of her stuff. Inspiring. Good times.
