(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #243 - Read Gaetano Manfredonia, "World History of anarchy" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 26 Nov 2014 14:45:01 +0200

Each year, as Christmas approaches, the shelves of bookstores garnish of "beautiful books" bulky and expensive, the rich iconography is the essential argument. It is in this category that ranks the world history of anarchy, co-published by Arte Editions and Textual. France, Italy, Spain, Russia, USA, Argentina, Japan, Korea... it's an eclectic ride but still well documented that we invite the historian Gaetano Manfredonia, with sharp text and an array of beautiful photographs partly from his personal archives. ---- Who knows the work of Korean anarchism, from the armed struggle against Japanese imperialism? In 1924, the Manifesto of the Korean revolution Shin Chae-Ho, which linked national liberation and social transformation, signed his real birth certificate. Anarchists then participated in extensive experience of peasant self-organization in Manchuria, but soon had to fight on two fronts, against both the Chinese Stalinists against the Japanese fascists.

Who remembers that there was a libertarian streak in the 1957-1959 Cuban guerrillas? A few weeks after the fall of the dictator Batista, anarchists, however, denounced the takeover of Fidel Castro and the authoritarian turn of the revolution. In 1960, for opposing statist reforms in agriculture, they were persecuted by the new regime and last, the majority take the path of exile. We will have an overview of these episodes, and many others throughout the book whose cover, unfortunately devoid of originality, not a tribute to content.
