This book is an excellent account of the Spanish Revolution by a lifelong anarchist and member of the CNT......
José Peirats Valls (1908-1989) was a Spanish anarchist, activist, journalist and historian. Born in the province of Valencia, Peirats had a limited schooling in one of the working class rationalist schools (which offered an alternative to mainstream education controlled by the clergy and state), and it was their that he developed a thirst for learning which never left him. For many years he worked as a tile-maker, and throughout his life he devoted himself to the anarchist movement.
Peirats came to anarchism after moving to Barcelona, and he was a long-standing member of the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT), and at one point edited its newspaper, Solidaridad Obrera ('Workers Solidarity'). As a historian of the Spanish anarchist movement, Peirats has produced several important books, one of which is this title - a fascinating and detailed study of the libertarian movement in Spain during the Spanish Civil War
