Emma Goldman defined anarchism as the, "Philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made law; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary." Mother Earth, vol. ix, no. 7, September, 1914.

The Tamiment Library, a special collection at NYU Libraries with a focus on labor and the Left, holds books, pamphlets, serials, manuscripts, photographs, films, posters, buttons, cartoons, and printed ephemera related to anarchism.  Highlights  include letters of Emma Goldman, manuscripts of Alexander Berkman, photographs of Rudolf Rocker, and publications such as Why and Fraye Arbeter Shtime, as well as trial testimony, and numerous oral history interviews with 20th century anarchists.
