Facing the Enemy:A History of Anarchist Organization from Proudhon to May 1968


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

The finest single volume history of Anarchism is finally avaiable in English in Paul Sharkey's elegant translation.

Drawing on decades of research, Skirda is able to trace the history of Anarchism as a political movement and ideology across the 19th and 20th centuries. He offers biting and incisive portraits of the major thinkers and organizers and of their opposition--like the Paris chief of police who organized undercover "anarchist bombers" in an attempt to infiltrate and discredit the movement.

Skirda argues that the core problem for anarchists has been to create a revolutionary movement and envision a future society in which the autonomy of the indivudial is not compromised by the need to take collective action. How anarchists have grappled with that question in theory and in practice make up the core of the book.

Written by Alexandre Skirda, published by AK Press, 2001.
