Very few periodicals intended for a mass market dare to reflect the personal beliefs and characters of their editors. An exception was Liberty, an anarchist magazine edited by Benjamin Ricketson Tucker from 1881 through 1908. Though not devoted specifically to politics, literature, women's issues, or popular fiction, as were many contemporaneous periodicals, Liberty encompassed all of these. Liberty is an excellent example of a special-interest group making the most of nineteenth-century publishing practices to market its ideas to the public.
