5.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of her time 22 May 2013
By SeungHyun Hong - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is incredible! Her ideas are revolutionary and ahead of her time, even ahead of our time. I see marriage in this world is showing more and more contradictions and making lots of troubles. Emma is against marriage, and in favor of love. Like she wrote, love is the greatest gift in the world. We should not let marriage destroy love. I highly recommend this book to everyone who is in favor of love.
5.0 out of 5 stars Marriage and The State 6 May 2014
By Alan - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not really a book, more like an essay. The copy I got had Google Docs watermarks on it (suggests it was put together hastily and printed). However the content is good and the print is clear. Overall a great copy of a historical document.

This essay will make you question the very institution of marriage. On ways the state has attributed to the decline of love and why Free Love is the way to go. Any fan of Goldman will enjoy this and if you are a first timer this is a GREAT way to get started before getting any of her other books.

Love it!
5.0 out of 5 stars early feminist socialist essy 30 Jan. 2014
By snazzmo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was written six years before women got voting rights in the U.S., by a feminist author with an anarchist political background. Goldman was ahead of her time as a feminist, belonging less to the first wave of feminists whose main goal was voting rights, and more to the second wave of feminists whose goal was social revolution for equality of women with men, including wider acceptance for women into professions, higher education, and equal pay for equal work. In this piece, she writes that marriage is an artificial institution that benefits mainly patriarchal power structures, and stifles both men and women in their love lives and personal expression. Her arguments and support data give us a strong reminder that just 100 years ago, women were still little better than chattel in North America, though they had entered the workforce of the Industrial Revolution 60 years earlier. She also relates the artificiality and failure of marriage to capitalist economy, which was a central target of her pro-anarchist political activism. Modern readers will recognize her accurate analysis of the ways marriage adversely affects married individuals. It's a quick, easy read and an important piece of feminist history.
4.0 out of 5 stars An early feminist representative of a struggling past. 26 Aug. 2013
By John Brandenberger - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a historical document for understanding some of the background issues and problems that surround the emergence of the women's rights worldwide. I don't know if all the issues are still relevant but it is certainly a good place to find the seeds that erupted and spawned the movement towards women's rights. I enjoyed the ride.

Short and sort of outdated. Of interest to a historian perhaps for the general attitude.
