The CNT in the Spanish Revolution, Volume 1

A careful chronicle of political change and hope in 1930s Spain,this staggering work examines how the Confederación Nacional delTrabajo (CNT), rose up against the oppressive structures of Spanishsociety. Documenting a history of revolution that failed at thehands of its enemies on both the reformist left and reactionaryright, this intelligent account covers all areas of the anarchistexperience—from the spontaneous militias and the revolutionarycollectives to the moral dilemmas occasioned by the clash ofrevolutionary ideals and the stark reality of the war effort.Passionately written and carefully indexed, this edition is theonly in-depth English-language text available and converts the workinto a usable tool for historians and anarchists alike.
