In 1937 Camillo Berneri, one of the great anarchist theorists and journalists of his era, was assassinated in Barcelona by men wearing red armbands. It was a final expression of the fear and hatred he had inspired in the forces of authoritarianism throughout his life. Whether they be Mussolini’s blackshirts, Stalin’s thugs or Franco’s military men, Berneri had opposed Europe’s oppressors with clarity and passion, and been loved for it. This collection of translated works brings together his thoughts on Russia’s revolution, Italy’s 1920s descent into dictatorship, the Spanish Civil War, and his critical, sometimes iconoclastic works about anarchism itself.
