THE INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT A study of the origins and development of the revolutionary anarchist movement in Europe 1945-’73

£1.50

A concise study of the origins and development of the revolutionary anarchist movement in Europe 1945-73, with particular reference to the First of May Group. This group — formed in 1966 by the post-war generation of (largely Spanish) anarchist militants who took up arms against Franco and American imperialism — has been one of the best known of the anarchist activist groups of the period under review. It represents a continuation of the work of Sabaté and the immediate post-war Spanish urban and rural guerrilla resistance, and a bridge-head into the next period when revolutionary activism in many countries (Germany, USA, Italy, and South America) consisted of many strands some of which were authoritarian Marxist—usually Maoist, sometimes Council-Communist, occasionally Trotskyist others were Anarchist.
Includes historical background, a chronology, and documents and communiqués from The First of May Group, the International Revolutionary Solidarity Movement and the Federación Ibérica de Juventudes Libertarias.
