A fascinating, broad history anchored by the life of Jose Pierats. We follow his development from gang member to union organiser to anarchist intellectual, journalist and revolutionary. Both a study of one man and a collective biography of the working class into which he was born, Living Anarchism illuminates the human foundations in the development of Spanish anarchism - the ties of kinship, friendship, and community that cemented the largest anti-authoritarian movement in the world. It also contains the first in-depth study of the CNT labour union in exile.
