 About the Book 

Cultural Writing. More dangerous than a thousand rioters! Thats what the Chicago police called Lucy Parsons--Americas most defiant and persistent anarchist agitator, whose cross-country speaking tours inspired hundreds of thousands of working people. Her friends and admirers included William Morris, Peter Kropotkin, Big Bill Haywood, Ben Reitman, and Sam Dolgoff. And the groups in which she was active were just as varied: the Knights of Labor, IWW, Dil Pickle Club, International Labor Defense, and others. Here for the first time is a hefty selection of her powerful writings and speeches: on anarchism, women, race matters, class war, the IWW, and the U.S. injustice system. Lucy Parsonss writings are among the best and strongest in the history of U.S. anarchism--Gale Ahrens.
