Synopsis

This series of reprints of classic texts by anarchist writers from the mid-19th century to present day is intended to offer broad access to the roots of this political perspective, to the history of Libertarian thought and action and to the contemporary ideological developments within the movement. A textbook on the theory and practice of non-violence, written by a Dutch pacifist and anarcho-syndicalist who warns that "the more violence, the less revolution". He links Gandhi's principled non-violence with the total non-cooperation advocated by the syndicalists during the General Strike. The result is a theory of non-violent direct action which had a widespread impact on British and American pacifists of the 1930s and remains an influence on activists today.
