Ida Mett (1901-1973) is perhaps best known today for her groundbreaking history of the Kronstadt uprising. She was active in anarchist circles in several countries throughout her turbulent life, and wrote consistently for various anarchist and leftist publications.

The articles collected here - some printed in English for the first time - span from 1930 to 1954; including personal accounts of well-known revolutionaries, real time appraisals of the struggle against fascism, insightful analysis of the political scene in the (then) USSR, prescient warnings about the "politics of the lesser evil", and much more...

These are lessons of lived history from a militantly internationalist and working class anarchist perspective.
