"I Glanced Up--The Statue of Liberty!": Emma Goldman Describes Her Deportation in the Era of the Red
After World War I, a "red scare" gripped the United States. One reflection of this climate of hysteria was in the "Palmer raids" on radicals. Striking without warning and without warrants, Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer's men smashed union offices and the headquarters of Communist and Socialist organizations. They concentrated whenever possible on aliens rather than citizens, because aliens had fewer rights. In December 1919, in their most famous act, Palmer's agents seized 249 resident ali

In a statement made on October 22, 1918, John Deml, a far

Lloyd George - the great outsider
David Lloyd George became the authentic radical of British politics in part because of intellectual conviction, but, more significantly, because his birth and upbringing had made him contemptuous of the establishment and its values. He did not so much break the rules of conventional society and politics as refuse to acknowledge their existence. He remained an "outsider" to the end. This event celebrates the publication of Lord Hattersley's new book David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider.
