Anarchism and Anarcho-Syndicalism, by Rudolf Rocker
Published by Freedom Press in 2013, 44 pages. Paperback (N2882)
Rudolf Rocker's classic survey of anarcho-syndicalism was written during the Spanish Civil War to explain to the wider reading public the ideology which inspired the social revolution in Spain. It remains unsurpassed as a general introduction to anarchist thought and an authoritative account of the early history of international anarchism by one of the movement's leading figures.
From the rear side cover: Rudolf Rocker remains one of the most important figures in the history of anarchism, from his key role organising against sweatshop labour in London in the 1900s to being the moving spirit behind the founding of the largest ever anarchist international - the IWMA in 1921. In his later years he attempted to chronicle the rise and fall of mass, organised anarchism in Europe. Anarchism and Anarcho-Syndicalism is Rocker's abridged version of his major work Anarcho Syndicalism and helps to explain where organised anarchism came from. This book's lessons are a must for anyone interested in where it is going...
