History of the Paris Commune of 1871

by Prosper-Olivier Lissagaray - £14.99  Verso Books (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844677764 | ISBN 10: 1844677761

The classic history of the Paris Commune.
 
In 1871, the working class of Paris, incensed by their lack of political power and tired of being exploited, seized control of the capital. This book is the outstanding history of the Commune, the heroic battles fought in its defence, and the bloody massacre that ended the uprising. Its author, Lissagaray, was a young journalist who not only saw the events recounted here first-hand, but fought for the Commune on the barricades. He spent the next twenty-five years researching and writing this history, which refutes the slanders levelled at the Communards by the ruling classes and is a vivid and valuable study in urban political revolution, one that retains its power to inspire to this day.
 
This revised edition includes a foreword by the writer and publisher Eric Hazan.
