Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist
by Alexander Berkman
Publisher: Mother Earth Publishing Association 1920
Number of pages: 512
Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist is above all else the story of the education of one man. We watch Berkman become humanized, tolerant, able to sympathize with the most diverse and antagonistic individuals. No other book discusses so frankly the criminal ways of the closed prison society, its homosexuality or extortion. No other political prisoner even remotely approaches Berkman's sympathy for what most of the revolutionaries refer to contemptuously as common criminals.

First published in Berlin in 1900 after the assassination of Czar Alexander II, attributed to anarchists. This book has merit because of its honest appraisal of libertarianism/anarchism at a time when anarchism was a political disapproval word.
