Originally published in 1912, this early work by anarchist and political activist Alexander Berkman is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details an account of his time spent in the Western Penitentiary of Pennsylvania while serving a sentence for attempting to assassinate wealthy industrialist Henry Clay Frick. This is a fascinating publication highly recommended for those interested in anarchism and the history of American politics. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
