"Revolution", by Carlo Cafiero

<table><tr><td>From <a href="http://www.blackcatpress.ca/Revolution%20-%20Cafiero.html">Black Cat Press</a>

New publication from Black Cat Press, Edmonton, Canada

Black Cat Press is pleased to announce the publication of "Revolution" by Carlo Cafiero for the first time ever in English (indeed nor has it ever been published as a complete volume in the original Italian!). The book brings what is certainly Cafiero's most complete, original work to English-speaking audiences for the first time. It is also an extremely important work in that it is one of the earliest attempts at compiling a complete theoretical view of the revolutionary ideal of anarchist communism.

Edited and translated by Nestor McNab with an introduction by Pier Carlo Masini

Carlo Cafiero (1846–1892) is undoubtedly one of the most important figures of the First International both in Italy, his home country, and in general throughout Europe.</td><td><img title="Never now. Always then." src="http://anarchistnews.org/files/pictures/2012/caferio-revolution.jpg"></t...

But this mild-mannered anarchist is all too often remembered only for some of the curious episodes in his life (his participation in the Benevento uprising, his "gift" of La Baronata to Bakunin and anarchist revolutionaries), rather than for his ideas and the enormous influence he had on the early socialist movement in Italy.

This book brings what is certainly Cafiero's most complete, original work to English-speaking audiences for the first time. It is also an extremely important work in that it is one of the earliest attempts at compiling a complete theoretical view of the revolutionary ideal of anarchist communism.

Nestor McNab is a teacher and translator living in Rome, Italy. He has translated and edited the English edition of "The International Anarchist Congress. Amsterdam (1907)." (Black Cat Press, 2009)

Pier Carlo Masini (1923–1998) was a noted historian who specialized in the history of the First International in Italy. A prominent activist in the anarchist movement in his youth, in later life he devoted himself to research and publicizing the history of the movement.

Last fucking comment. Take the masks off. No one can identify with and or care about emo rockers in bandanas. If it's the tear gas you're scared of fine. But fuck the rest of it. Heads are going to roll, believe me. And you aint got shit accept some vapid phrases and an underground sub-culture to back you up.

Count how many fucking times I've been right.

igtt 1/10

Hold the masks ( so long as they're not red ) no one has to de-mask for anyone. If I can't mask, I don't want you're revolution.

Ok youre right tell me how to dress and what to do so people can "identify" with me. Im all ears.

Love the cover. Want.

This stuff again? I thought it was extinct like Syndicalism?

Can these fads finally go away and die?

the iww does more than you

But of course that's not saying much.

This ripped off the cover of Canticles. look at it Workerists tryin to stay relevant over here.

Actually an important segment of anarcho-communism (incluiding at some point Kropotkin himself) argued that syndicalism even if it was anarchist would only tend to domesticate workers into capitalist structures and were critical of the call to workers managing as cooperatives the factories created by and for capitalism. Some even identified anarcho-syndicalism with bakuninist collectivist anarchism. So some anarcho-communists didn´t want anything to do with anarcho-syndicalism and stayed in their local collective and affinity group. It seems it is unfortunate that some people equate anarcho-communism with marxist-leninist platformism.

did you read the post before you commented? They said that the people who designed this cover ripped the design off from a book called Canticles. It didn't say anything about Anarcho-communism being the same thing as Syndicalism.

where can i find out about these @com critiques of @synd?

Even more curious an episode: that time he had a psychotic breakdown that left him unable to interact with other people the rest of his life.
