Abstract:

"A long-awaited new edition of this seminal history of Spanish Anarchism. Hailed as a masterpiece, it includes a new prefatory essay by the author. This popular, well-researched book opens with the Italian Anarchist Fanelli's stirring visit to Spain in 1868 and traces the movement's checkered but steady growth for the next 70 years. Intimate portraits are vividly juxtaposed with striking descriptions of events: peasant revolts, labor unrest, the saintly Fermin Saivochea, official repression, the terrorists and the evolution of exciting organizational forms. Bookchin weaves his way geographically through the whole of Spain, revealing the shadings and subtleties of each small section. From the peasants of Andalusia to the factory workers of Barcelona, the Spanish people - and their exuberant belief in and struggles for freedom and self-determination - come alive."--BOOK JACKET.
