The May Days: Barcelona, 1937

by Augustin Souchy, Jose Peirats, Burnett Bolloten & Emma Goldman - £7.00  Freedom Press (1987)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780900384394 | ISBN 10: 0900384395

Most academic historians treat the May Days in Barcelona 1937 as 'a minor incident in the Spanish Civil War' in spite of the fact that in the armed struggle that took place, casualties - 500 killed and 1000 wounded - were actually greater than in the first week of the military uprising in Barcelona on July 19 1936.
This volume seeks to give the May Days their real importance by publishing Augustin Souchy's first-hand detailed account which has been out of print for more than forty years. The chapter by Burnett Bolloten - a United Press correspondent in Spain during the Civil War - completes the picture with a well-documented account of the comings and goings of the politicians, both inside the government and among the anarchist leaders. And for those who still deny there were secret prisons in Republican Spain there is Emma Goldman's account of her experiences trying to visit political prisoners during 1937.
