Deported to Russia in 1919 with other undesirable "Reds," Goldman witnessed firsthand the aftermath of the tsarist government's downfall. Horrified by what she saw in major cities and revolted by the Bolshevik dictatorship, she left the country in 1921 and soon after, set down her thoughts in two books. This edition, combining the two original volumes, contains Goldman's account of her experiences in Soviet Russia from 1920 to 1921 and what she viewed as the Bolshevik betrayal of the Revolution. Goldman speaks passionately about political harassment and forced labor inflicted upon the masses, the rampant opportunism raging throughout the Soviet government, industrial militarization, persecution of anarchists, and the increased use of deportation as a political weapon. An unabridged edition of My Disillusionment In Russia (1923) and My Further Disillusionment In Russia (1924)
