The Anarchist Collectives
Workers' Self-management in the Spanish Revolution 1936-1939
“Varied, complex, often inspiring, the achievement of the people in Spain is unique in the history of 20th century revolution. It should be carefully studied.”—Noam Chomsky
“An excellent documentary history of the Anarchist collective in Spain.”—Paul Avrich
This is the first book in English that is devoted to the experiments in workers’ self-management, both urban and rural, which constituted one of the most remarkable social revolutions in modern history. Libertarian communism was truly the creation of workers and peasants—a “spontaneous” creation, for which the groundwork had been laid by decades of struggle and education, experiment and thought.
