The Story of Maria Nikiforova, the Anarchist Joan of Arc
A non fiction book by Malcolm Archibald
The Ukrainian anarchist Maria Nikiforova (1885-1919) rose from the slums of industrial Alexandrovsk to become a ferocious terrorist and military commander who sacrificed everything for the cause of the Russian Revolution. A revolutionary from the age of sixteen, she fought for freedom of the oppressed on three continents, ended up on trial for her life on at least four occasions, and was sentenced to death twice. Her exploits became the stuff of folklore, but she was "blacklisted" by official historians and her story was lost for generations. Now, thanks to the good folks at Black Cat Press, her story is available again--and in English!
