GlassgoldAnarchy! An Anthology of Emma Goldman’s Mother Earth (1906-1918) is the first collection of work drawn from the pages of the foremost anarchist journal published in America—provocative writings by Goldman, Margaret Sanger, Peter Kropotkin, Alexander Berkman, and other radical thinkers. For this expanded edition, editor Peter Glassgold contributes a new preface as well as adding a substantial section, “The Trial and Conviction of Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman,” which includes a transcription of their eloquent and moving self-defense against trumped-up charges of wartime espionage.

Glassgold was born and raised in New York City and now lives in upstate New York. He is a graduate of Columbia College, and as an undergraduate he was an editor and writer for the college humor magazine, The Jester. He has been an editor at The New Leader magazine and of The New-York Historical Society Quarterly. From 1970 to 2005, he was an editor at the literary publishing house New Directions, serving as editor in chief and later as editor at large. He was a member of the Executive Board of PEN American Center from 1982 to 1996 and for ten years chaired that organization's Translation Committee. He also sat on the Professional Advisory Board of the Center for Research in Translation at SUNY–Binghamton and on the National Board of The Translation Center, Columbia University. In addition, he has taught and lectured at SUNY–Binghamton, Colgate University, Jersey State College, New York University, and Pace University and has spoken on literary translation before gatherings of the Modern Language Association, the American Literary Translation Association, and the American Translators Association.
