Davide Turcato makes the relevance of history dynamically clear. Through a biographical account of Errico Malatesta’s revolutionary exploits over a decade, Making Sense of Anarchism is simultaneously a critique of how history is written and an outline of political tensions and debates that continue to this day.
Taking traditional historians of anarchism to task for their lazy and prejudicial characterisation of anarchism as 'irrational', Turcato shows how treating anarchists as rational agents not only makes documentary sense for historians, but can help us make sense of anarchist tendencies of all eras, and today's ongoing radical debates.
For readers interested in political theory, Turcato shows how Malatesta's arguments cut through many of the standard debates within anarchism, and between anarchists and marxists.
