The Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici is pleased to announce the launch of a
new pamphlet available for download from its website: Class War, Reaction & the
Italian Anarchists. This historical pamphlet, written by Adriana Dadà and first
published in Italian in 1982, deals with the development of the Italian
anarchist movement in the first quarter of the 20th century, its influence on
the labour movement, its history of organization and its struggles and
strategies. It is appearing for the first time in English, translated by Nestor

* A Re-think on Strategy
* Notes

At the start of the twentieth century, the Italian anarchist movement was
rediscovering its ability to appear as an organized presence thanks in part to
its work among the masses and the organic links which many militants had
established since the 1890s with the new workers' and peasants' organizations.
In the 1880s, as a result of the move to the tactic of "propaganda by the deed"
by the international anarchist movement in reply to government repression, the
path had been cleared for a tendency which was far from the established
Bakuninist line. This was the antiorganizationalist tendency, which brought to
an extreme the concept of the autonomy of the group and of the individual, with
the result that any remaining organizational structures were destroyed.
