Abstract "Arise! uncovers a social history of global radicalism. Christina Heatherton considers how early twentieth-century radicals like Black American artist Elizabeth Catlett, Mexican revolutionary leader Ricardo Flores Magón, and Soviet feminist Alexandra Kollontai found inspiration, refuge, and solidarity in the actual and imagined spaces of Revolutionary Mexico. From farm worker strikes in California's Imperial Valley and internationalist art collectives in Mexico City to Kansas's Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary, where radicals built a "university" behind bars, she argues that internationalism was forged across space and through unanticipated alliances"-- Provided by publisher.
