Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1937, at the behest of Emma Goldman, Rocker penned this political and philosophical masterpiece as an introduction to the ideals fueling the Spanish social revolution and resistance to capitalism the world over. Within, Rocker offers an introduction to anarchist ideas, a history of the international workers’ movement, and an outline of the syndicalist strategies and tactics embraced at the time (direct action, sabotage and the general strike). Includes a lengthy introduction by Nicholas Walter and a Preface by Noam Chomsky.

“[Rocker’s] approach is far from ‘utopian’; this is not an abstract discourse but a call to action.”—Noam Chomsky

Rudolf Rocker (1873–1958) was a leading figure in the international anarchist movement for over 60 years.

About the Author

Rudolf Rocker is one of Anarchism's most cherished characters. Born in Germany, Rocker left for Paris due to police herassment, finally settling in Britain in 1895. While there Rocker learned to read and write in Yiddish and became a beloved member of the Jewish Anarchist movement until his death. As a proponent of the bourgening workers movement, known as Anarcho-syndicalism, Rocker wrote for journals in German, Yiddish and English throughout Europe until 1933 and the rise of the Nazi regime when he emigrated to the U.S. in order to escape persecution.
