Reviews

"The most important woman to emerge from the Paris Commune of 1871, an associate of Jules Guesde, Prince Kropotkin, Emma Goldman, and Paul Lafargue, and a long-time friend of Victor Hugo, Michel is one of those curious personalities who are well heralded by historians but not really well known. . . . The appearance of this translated and edited edition of her memoirs should be welcomed by psychobiographers, students of radical movements, and those interested in the history of achieving women." - "Journal of Psychohistory" An excellent translation of the edited memoirs of one of the 19th century s most colorful anarchists and feminists. A staunch enemy of Louis Napoleon s Second Empire and of the opportunist Third Republic that followed, Michel tells of her part in the Communard Revolt, describes her subsequent deportation to and life in New Caledonia, and recounts highlights of her stormy career in France after amnesty of 1880. She tells her story with a zeal and dedication to a cause worthy of the true revolutionary she was. "Choice"" A welcome addition to literature on 19th century feminism and the Paris Commune of 1871 [and] a sensitive and sensible translation. This volume, with its helpful introductory and bibliographical notes, should become a standard source in women s history.
