Edelsohn, Rebecca (Becky). The anarchist response to war and labor violence in 1914: Rebecca Edelsohn, Alexander Berkman, anti-militarism, free speech and Hunger Strikes. Kate Sharpley Library: 2003. 25 pages.

Rebecca (Becky) Edelsohn was a dynamic New York Anarchist active in unemployment protests, anti-militarism, and solidarity actions with both the Mexican Revolution and the Colorado miners strike at the time of Rockerfeller's notorious Ludlow Massacre. This work examines both the NY Anarchist movement of the time (including the Lexington Avenue explosion which killed four militants) and her personal struggle - on the streets, in the courts, and finally in jail. Concluded with writings from The Woman Rebel and Mother Earth.
