bookshelves: personal-writing, anarchy

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.
