At the Cafe, Conversations on Anarchism, by Errico Malatesta . While Malatesta was hiding from the police he regularly went to a cafe in Ancona, Italy. He had shaved off his usual beard but he was still taking a risk. Especially as this wasn't an anarchist cafe, but had a variety of customers including the local policeman. 

In 1897, while Malatesta was hiding from the police, he regularly went to a cafe in Ancona, Italy. He had shaved off his usual beard, but was still taking a risk. Especially as this wasn't an anarchist cafe, but had a variety of customers including the local policeman. The conversations he had in this cafe became the basis for the dialogs that make up this book, though it was a work he wasn't to complete till 1920 - several wars and revolutions later! For the first time here in English, Malatesta, in his usual commonsense and matter-of-fact style, sets out and critically analyses the arguments for and against anarchism. Translated and introduced by Paul Nursey-Bray, this is a classic defense of anarchism, that anticipates the rise of nationalism, fascism and communism.

 

Please note some of the books we have been getting from Freedom Press (including this title) are the best of the fire damaged stock. The books may be slightly discoloured on the outside and smell a bit burnt but we believe they should not be wasted or purely cosmetic reasons and we want to help Freedom survive the arson attack by fascists. Consider such copies as special "solidarity copies" as opposed to "soiled"!
