Anarchism & American Tradtions, by Voltairine de Cleyre; 28 staple bound pamphlet/zine. Voltairine de Cleyre was an American anarchist writer and feminist. She was a prolific writer and speaker, opposing the state, marriage, and the domination of religion in sexuality and womenís lives. She began her activist career in the free thought movement. De Cleyre was initially drawn to individualist anarchism but evolved through mutualism to an ìanarchism without adjectives.î She believed that any system was acceptable as long as it did not involve force. However, according to anarchist author Iain McKay, she embraced the ideals of stateless communism. She was a colleague of Emma Goldman, with whom she maintained a relationship of respectful disagreement on many issues. Many of her essays were in the Collected Works of Voltairine de Cleyre, published posthumously by Mother Earth in 1914.
