Illustrations by Jacobo Pérez-Enciso

Translated by John Stewart

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
