In March 1921 the sailors of Kronstadt, the naval fortress in the Gulf of Finland, rose in revolt against the Bolshevik government, which they themselves had helped into power. Under the slogan of Òfree soviets, '' they established a revolutionary commune that survived for sixteen days, until an army came across the ice to crush it. After a savage struggle, the rebels were subdued. Paul Avrich vividly describes the uprising and examines it in the context of the development of the Soviet state. Originally published in 1991.

The modern school movement : anarchism and education in the United States by Paul Avrich( Book )

22 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and Danish and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Outraged by Ferrer's execution and influenced by his teaching methods, anarchists, artists, and educators joined forces to carry on his work. Between 1910 and 1960 anarchists across the United States established more than twenty schools where children might study in an atmosphere of freedom and self-reliance in contrast to the formality and discipline of the traditional classroom. These "Modern Schools" sought to abolish all forms of authority, political and economic as well as educational, and to usher in a new society based on the voluntary cooperation of free individuals. Their object, during an era of war, social ferment, and government repression, was to create not only a new type of school, but also a new culture, a new life, a new world."

Anarchist voices : an oral history of anarchism in America by Paul Avrich( Book )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Anarchist Voices, Avrich lets American anarchists speak for themselves. This book contains 80 interviews conducted by Avrich over a period of 30 years, interviews that portray the human dimensions of a movement much maligned by the authorities and contemporary journalists. Most of the interviewees (anarchists as well as their friends and relatives) were active during the heyday of the movement, between the 1880s and the 1930s. They represent all schools of anarchism and include both famous figures and minor ones, previously overlooked by most historians. Their stories provide a wealth of personal detail about such anarchist luminaries as Emma Goldman and Sacco and Vanzetti
Anarchist portraits by Paul Avrich( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the celebrated Russian intellectuals Michael Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin to the little-known Australian bootmaker and radical speaker J. W. Fleming, this book probes the lives and personalities of representative participants of this anarchist movement. In this volume, Paul Avrich captures the flavor of a time when anarchism was a vital part of a worldwide struggle against political and social injustice. The biographies here have a powerful cumulative effect that makes one fully aware of the influence of the anarchist movement during its heyday in the nineteenth and early nineteenth centuries -- and of the appeal that its ardent champions had for members of protest movements during the 1960s and 1970s. The book focuses chiefly on Russian and American anarchists and their influence on each other, but it includes discussions of Germany, France, Mexico, Brazil, and other countries, and of the numerous international connections within the anarchist movement. -- From publisher's description

The conquest of bread by Petr Alekseevich Kropotkin( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this brilliantly enjoyable rallying-cry of a book, Kropotkin lays out the heart of his anarchist beliefs, beliefs that surged around the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and that have a renewed relevance and poignancy today. Humane and thoughtful, but also a devastating critique of how modern society is organized (with the brutal, narrow few clinging onto their wealth and privileges at the expense of the many), The Conquest of Bread is a book to be argued over, again and again

On 1 May 1886, 800,000 workers from all trades and factories througout the US went on strike in support of the eight-hour work day. In Chicago, a stronghold of immigrant labour and anarchists, 300,000 workers struck and marched through the city streets in a huge display of proletarian power. Before the Chicago May Day strike action began, the management at McCormick Machine Co. (now International Harvester) had locked out 1500 workers over a wage dispute. On 3 May, when pickets attempted to prevent blackleg labour entering the plant, the Chicago police opened fire on the workers, killing four and wounding many more. Outraged at this act of naked aggression, radical newspaper called for armed resistance against the bloodthirsty Chicago police, and a protest rally was called for the following day (4 May) at Haymarket Square. ... As the meeting came to an end, 200 police moved in on the crowd. Suddenly, a bomb was thrown and exploded in the midst of the police, who immediately opened fire on the assembled workers. ... Five anarchists were convicted and sentenced to hang ... They were later shown to have had nothing to do with the bombings. -- Cover, page [4]
