Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Varied, complex, often inspiring, the achievement of the people in Spain is unique in the history of 20th century revolution. It should be carefully studied.”—Noam Chomsky

“An excellent documentary history of the Anarchist collective in Spain.”—Paul Avrich

This is the first book in English that is devoted to the experiments in workers’ self-management, both urban and rural, which constituted one of the most remarkable social revolutions in modern history. Libertarian communism was truly the creation of workers and peasants—a “spontaneous” creation, for which the groundwork had been laid by decades of struggle and education, experiment and thought.

Synopsis:

A highly important study that reveals a very different understanding of the nature of radical social change, and the means of achieving it.

About the Author

Sam Dolgoff was the editor of the best anthology of Bakunin's writings (published by Knopf), lived in New York all his life and worked as a manual worker. Widely read and much solicited as a speaker on freedom and libertarian perspectives of past and current events.
