A new and revised selection of writings by one of the leading thinkers of anarchism and one of the most important practitioners of social revolution, brought together in this collection for the general reader and student and nearly all published for the first time in English.

A titan among the social philosophers of the age that produced Proudhon, Marx, Blanqui, and Kropotkin, Michael Bakunin was involved in the Dresden Uprising in 1848, which led to his imprisonment first in Germany, then in Russia, and his exile in Siberia, from where he escaped to Europe in 1861. Until his death in 1876, he lived and worked in London, Naples, Paris, Prague, Berlin and Geneva in opposition to the communist-statist Marx and the populist-liberal Herzen.

With the publication of Dolgoff's lengthy and careful selection, the vitality of Bakunin's message is evident. - Labour History

The most complete anthology I've seen of this neglected writer. It confirms my suspicion that Bakunin is the most underrated of the classical 19th century theoreticians. - Dwight Macdonald

The best available in English. Bakunin's insights into power and freedom, the new classes of specialists, are refreshing, original and often still unsurpassed in clarity and vision. - Noam Chomsky

Sam Dolgoff (1902-1990) played an important role in the anarchist movement since the early 1920s. He was a member of the Chicago Free Society Group, and co-founded the New York Libertarian League.

1993: 453 pages
