The memoir of prominent member of the Zionist paramilitary group the Stern Gang in its fight against the British for a free Palestine. Cohen joined the Stern Gang at age 17, and was best-known for her illegal radio broadcasts which landed her in prison.

"[Cohen's] memoirs explode with the ferocious intensity of her terrorist faith, her inflexible idealism. Woman of Violence is no apologia, no easy balm for a troubled conscience; it is, instead, an open and intimate portrait of a woman, and the conditions that drove her underground to embrace a philosophy of violence and terror." She would go on to found Israel's Tehiya party and was a long-serving politician in Israel's Knesset. Item #140940573
