Anarchists In The Spanish Revolution

by Jose Peirats - £12.50  Freedom Press (1990)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780900384530 | ISBN 10: 0900384530

Translated from Los anarquistas en la crisis politica espanola (1962), this is the most comprehensive, critical history of the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939, and the role played by in it by the CNT-FAI, the anarcho-syndicalists and anarchists. The first hundred pages are a brief survey of the working class movement in Spain, going back to the foundation of the Spanish section of the First International in 1869, and the political struggles which were a prelude to the Civil War.
Jose Peirats Valls (1908-1989) started work at the age of eight. At the age of fourteen he became an apprentice brickmaker and a member of the clandestine Libertarian Youth. During the Civil War he fought with the anarchist militias, escaping to South America in 1939. From 1947 he lived in Toulouse, where he edited two Spanish language journals and wrote a history La CNT en la Revolucion Espanola, 1951-53 (English edition available in 2 volumes). After the death of Franco he returned to Spain and spent the rest of his life in the village of his birth.
