From Publishers Weekly:

Flamboyant anarchist Emma Goldman generally is considered a prescient critic of Soviet authoritarianism, which she observed firsthand when the U.S. government deported her to Russia in 1919. But Wexler ( Emma Goldman in America ) argues that the disillusioned radical's greatly exaggerated portrayal of an enslaved, terrorized U.S.S.R. resulted from her homesickness, disorientation and the shattering of her anarchist ideals. Furthermore, Wexler blames the anti-Stalinist Goldman for contributing to the Cold War stereotype of communism as a monolithic evil. This remarkably vivid biographical study follows "Red Emma" from her exile with comrade-lover Alexander Berkman to her death in Toronto in 1940. It traces her activities in the Spanish Civil War, where she briefly felt a sense of belonging, and her trip to the U.S. in 1934. Bertrand Russell, Paul Robeson, Frank Harris and Peggy Guggenheim figure in the story. Wexler's clear-eyed, dispassionate portrait brings a self-mythologizing woman into focus. Photos.

From Library Journal:

A portrait of anarchist Emma Goldman that takes up the story where Wexler's Emma Goldman: An Intimate Biography left off--when Goldman was deported from the United States. Of the earlier book our reviewer said, "it captures the complexity of Goldman's personality" ( LJ 9/15/84).-- MR
