bookshelves: personal-writing, anarchy
Read in January, 1993

In prison for shooting an industrialist coal factory owner, Frick, Berkman regrets that the bastard wasn't killed, writes of daily life, some of his past, and on anarchism, naturally. I prefer autobiographies and memoirs to people's actual political texts, so I wasn't too disappointed here. I mean, we can all grasp the core beliefs of anarchy in about five minutes, but how people put them into practice is far more interesting.
