        In the University of California Press published the ªrst thorough biography of Smedley: Agnes Smedley: The Life and Times of an American Radical, by Janice MacKinnon and Stephen MacKinnon. The academic authors of that biography depicted Smedley as an independent American radical woman. Drawing on fifteen years of intensive research and unprecedented access to previously unpublished documents, this vibrant book brings to life one of the twentieth century's most fascinating women. Ruth Price traces Agnes Smedley's unlikely trajectory from a small Missouri town to the coal country of Colorado; to Berkeley and Greenwich Village.
