Anarchism and Other Essays is a book by anarchist Emma Goldman, first published in 1910 by Mother Earth Publishing Association.[1] As well as outlining Goldman's ideas on anarchism and anarchist approaches to prisons, political violence, education, sex, women's rights, and art, it contains a foreword by Hippolyte Havel which gives biographical details about Goldman's life.

Lori Jo Marso argues that Goldman's essays, in conjunction with her life and thought, make important contributions to ongoing debates in feminism, including around "the connections and tensions between sexuality, love and feminist politics".[2]
