Abstract

Agnes Smedley died in 1950 as she had lived, a controversial and embattled figure whose life and career were intimately bound up with anti-colonial and liberation movements and the emancipation of women. Her life raises critical issues of internationalism, of the liberation of oppressed peoples and classes, of the equality of women and men, and of the possibilities and limits of the historical contributions of independent western radicals to Third World revolutions.
