“Di Paola’s book fills an important gap and helps give a fuller picture of how anarchist movements operated and managed to survive despite repression in their respective homelands.”—Davide Turcato, editor of The Complete Works of Malatesta
A collective biography of Italian anarchists exiled from their homeland during four decades of upheaval throughout Europe. England’s generous immigration and extradition policies made it a haven for anarchist dissidents. Di Paola charts the politics and culture of fledgling organizations and influential individuals as they maintained a global revolutionary network—under the watchful eyes of spies and informers—from their adopted home base of London. This first paperback edition includes a new introduction by the author.
Pietro Di Paola is a Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Lincoln.
