The available material in English discussing Latin American anarchism tends to be fragmentary, country-specific, or focused on single individuals. This new translation of Ángel Cappelletti’s wide-ranging, country-by- country historical overview of anarchism’s social and political achievements in fourteen Latin American nations is one of the few book-length regional histories published in English. With a foreword by the translator and an introduction by Romina Akemi and Javier Sethness-Castro.

“For the first time, English-language audiences have access to Ángel Cappelletti’s Anarchism in Latin America, one of the historiographical cornerstones of Latin American anarchism...an invaluable introduction to the hemispheric history of anarchism in Latin America. Gabriel Palmer-Fernández’s clear, skilled, and lucid translation includes an insightful introduction by modern scholar-activists that updates Cappelletti by expanding our understanding of how anarchists have dealt with feminist, environmental, and indigenous issues. This is a welcomed and timely book as anarchist ideas and movements once again surge throughout the Americas.” —Kirwin Shaffer, author of Black Flag Boricuas: Anarchism, Antiauthoritarianism, and the Left in Puerto Rico, 1897–1921

“The idea of ‘utopia’ was engendered by the European discovery of the Americas, and the continent has continued to be a site for alternative possibilities since then. Ángel Cappelletti’s book is an informative and uniquely handy work of reference." —Claudio Lomnitz, author of The Return of Comrade Flores Magón

“Progressives have long looked to Latin America for models of resistance and alternative political structures. However, we tend to see these models in a Marxist light. Anarchism in Latin America provides an important corrective, recounting the anarchist historical roots of some of the most important movements of our time.” —Todd May, author of A Fragile Life: Accepting Our Vulnerability

“This book will introduce American readers to the extraordinary history of anarchism among our southern neighbors.” —Staughton Lynd, co-author of Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism, and Radical History

Ángel J. Cappelletti (1927–1995) was an Argentinian philosopher who taught at Simon Bolivar University in Venezuela. He is the author of over forty works primarily investigating philosophy and anarchism.

Gabriel Palmer-Fernández is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Youngstown State University.
