Alan Wieder reviews Paul and Karen Avrich's "Sasha and Emma: the anarchist odyssey of Alexander Berkman and Emma Goldman". The book is a collaborative effort between this father and daughter. Karen took over Paul's manuscript after he died. Alan gives some background on Paul's work. The book tracks the two revolutionaries lives together and apart, as collaborating agitators and as very different revolutionaries, as advocates of free love and free thinking. The book is as much a cultural history as a book about particular people, showing Sasha and Emma's involvement in anarchist projects and plots across the US and Europe.
