Description

Louise Michel was the incendiary leader of the Paris Commune in 1871, when the city's population rose up to establish a short-lived workers' government. Feminist, anarchist, and irrepressible rebel, "The Red Virgin" spent much of her life on the run, in exile, or in jail. Features commentaries by Emma Goldman, Bertolt Brecht, Sheila Rowbotham, Howard Zinn, Victor Hugo, and Karl Marx.

About the Author

Louise Michel was an inspiring woman leader when the population of Paris rose up in 1871 to establish a short-lived workers' government. After the Commune was crushed, Michel, known throughout Europe as The Red Virgin, was captured, jailed and deported to the South Pacific. She supported the French colonies' struggles for independence, and was spied on and repeatedly arrested by police forces across Europe until her death. She maintained a lifetime friendship with French writer and poet Victor Hugo, along with many other European artists. Nic Maclellan is the author of After Moruroa: France in the South Pacific. He is a world authority on French colonialism and has translated much of this book, making parts of Michel's work available in English for the first time.
