Goddess of Anarchy: The Life and Times of Lucy Parsons



Jacqueline Jones. Goddess of Anarchy: The Life and Times of Lucy Parsons, American Radical. Basic Books, 2017, $32 hardcover

“Jones has done extensive research into Parsons’s life and written what will likely be the definitive biography for years to come. Yet despite her impressive scholarship and extensive citations, Jones does not fully grasp the nuances of the radical and labor movements—and especially the anarchist movement—of the time.”

A member of our editorial collective wrote this in a scathing review, but this is one of only two available biographies of Lucy Parsons, and despite its many errors of interpretation is well worth reading, albeit with a critical eye, by anyone interested in this era. https://blackrosefed.org/review-dont-throw-lucy-parsons-under-the-liberal-bus/
