Yiddish & Anarchism in America: A Shidduch (Marriage) Made in Heaven?, with Ken Blady
During the late 19th century. revolutionary ideas began to proliferate among the urban Yiddish-speaking working classes in Eastern Europe. In the United States, England and Argentina Jewish immigrants established militant labor unions and radical movements opposed to the authoritarian and statist (Marxist) left. Their ideology and agitation would have a profound impact on social, cultural and economic life, and their tactics and street theater would be emulated by students, rebels, Situationist and Yippies in the turbulent 1960s and 70s.=
