Dreams of Freedom: A Ricardo Flores Magon Reader


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Chunky volume of Magon's writing on a wide range of topics - Class War, Feminism, Racism and Expropriation to name a few - alongside letters, maps, illustrations, chronology and bibliography, with a lengthy biographical introduction by Mitchell Verter.

Along with Emiliano Zapata, Ricardo Flores Magón (b. 1874) is regarded as one of the most important figures of the Mexican Revolution. Through his newspaper Regeneración, he boldly criticized the injustices of the country's military dictatorship and worked to build the popular movement that eventually overthrew it. Exiled to the United States, Flores Magón continued to agitate for revolution in Mexico. Transcending nationalism, he also dreamed of a world free from all forms of injustice. Both the US and Mexican governments responded with harsh repression. Leavenworth Penitentiary ultimately murdered him in 1922.
This volume collects the first English translations of Flores Magón's most important writings. A lengthy historical overview, chronology, maps, images, and bibliography provide context for his work.

Translated, compiled, and annotated by Mitchell Verter and Chaz Bufe. AK Press, 2005.
