The Spanish anarchist movement of the early 20th century was, without doubt, the most powerful and influential anarchist movement on the planet and remains so today.Spanish anarchism provided a very rich and innovative
terrain for social and revolutionary experimentation. Given our current situation libertarian ideas and practices are
destined to resurface.
This concise text offers a critical introduction: it surveys achievements, contradictions and shortcomings, acknowledges controversies and sharp divergences of opinion and addresses often-neglected issues:
self-management, decentralisation, federalism, nationality, and the role of the state and of the bureaucracy.
It includes a bibliography and a listing of films.
Carlos Taibo, now retired, was Professor of Political Science at the Autonomous University of Madrid
