Emma Goldman called her "the most gifted and brilliant anarchist woman America ever produced." Yet today Voltairine de Cleyre is virtually unknown even among libertarians. She is discussed only briefly in histories of American anarchism and is not even mentioned at all in the more general studies of James Joll, George Woodcock, and Daniel Guerin. Though her writing was both voluminous and powerful, she appears in only one modern anarchist anthology. Only two recent collections of American radical thought include her classic "Anarchism and American Traditions"; and, ironically, neither is primarily anarchist in content.
This is an Audio book of Voltairine De Cleyre's "Direct Action". This wonderful book explains the different forms of direct action and the very meaning of the term itself. She explains how everyone at some point in their life has practiced "Direct Action" and will do so again. It is a wonderful book so please seed this so everyone can enjoy it.
