by Daniel Guérin, Translated by Mary Klopper
A translation of L'anarchisme: de la doctrine á l'action. Introduction by Noam Chomsky.
“One of the ablest leaders and writers of the French New Left describes the two realms of ‘anarchism’—its intellectual substance, and its actual practice through the Bolshevik Revolution, the Spanish Civil War, the Italian Factory Councils, and finally the role in workers’ self-management in Yugoslavia and Algeria… An important contemporary definition of New Left aims and their possible directions in the future.” -- Publishers Weekly
