From the introduction:

"The numerous editions and translations of this pamphlet by Errico Malatesta all over the world have already demonstrated that its importance and relevance have been universally recognized. Fra Contadini shares the modest tone of Malatesta's other writings, more obvious here through the use of dialogue...because in reality, this is a didactic piece of work. Malatesta's intention is to supply the anarchist movement..with an agile instrument of propaganda...Taken as a whole, it is still functional and admirably suited to the aim for which it was written: to push the most backward strata of the exploited to insurrection. It is an instrument of struggle, not a manual of anarchist theory. The clarity of vision that emanates from this pamphlet should not culminate in more fruitless theorising, therefore, but in practical insurrection and expropriation." - Alfredo M. Bonano
