Mikhail Bakunin was a propagator of Anarchistic Socialism and an active promoter of the International Workers' Association (IWA). He argued for International workers' solidarity, change involving rural and industrial workers, and a Libertarian or Anarchist form of Socialism with federated accountable democratic organisations responsible to the grassroots, rather than hierarchical state structures. He rejected electoral politics that made working people serve the interest of middle- and upper-class professional politicians.

This book brings together a selection of texts: letters, a lecture, newspaper articles, finished and unfinished works. The selection begins in 1868, the year Bakunin moved to Geneva and became a member of the local section of the IWA. Bakunin discusses the development of politics in and around the IWA. 

Many of these texts appear here in English for the first time.

Contents: Introduction, Chronology, The Programme of the International Alliance for Socialist Democracy, Open Letter from the Central Bureau of the International Fraternity, Letter to James Guillaume, April 1869, Articles in L'Égalité, On Inheritance, speech at the Basel congress of the IWA, On Real Democracy, Prospects for Socialism, Letter to Nikolai Ogarev and the Red Poster, On Discipline, Second lecture to the workers of the Saint-Imier Valley, Socialism and the Paris Commune, On Leaders and politics, On the Alliance, Letter to the Jura comrades, Letter to Celso Ceretti March 1872, Letter to Tómas González Morago May 1872, The Programme of the Slav section in Zurich, Writings against Marx, On Lassalle and Marx, Letter of resignation from the Jura Federation, Letter to Élisée Reclus, Notes, Glossary, Index.
