Sacco-Vanzetti : the murder and the myth by Robert H Montgomery( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The trial of Sacco and Vanzetti in 1921 for the murder of a paymaster and his guard in South Braintree, Massachusetts, has been a cause celebre for nearly a century. Because they were professional anarchists, it has been passionately argued that they never were legally proved guilty; that they were convicted and executed for their political opinions. Author Montgomery, an attorney, knew many of the principals of the trial and of the final review in 1927. In his view, Sacco and Vanzetti were guilty of murder as charged and were properly convicted by an uninfluenced jury. Here he gives the full story of the intimidations, bribes, false confessions, threats, and propaganda on the part of supporters and defenders of Sacco and Vanzetti

Social anarchism by Giovanni Baldelli( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, originally published in 1972, remains a major contribution to anarchist literature. It is one man's vision of an anarchist society based on ethical values-without laws, without political authority, and without concentrations of power. An active anarchist since youth and a contributor to anarchist journals for many years, Giovanni Baldelli lived anarchism from within the anarchist movement and the ethical community that the movement aspires to be. In this book he clearly sets forth the anarchist's alternatives to government- viable principles of organization for an ethical society. The revival of anarchist movements is here viewed as stemming from extreme centralization of governmental authority and stringent political collectivism-communist or democratic-that is incompatible with personal freedom, economic justice, ethical society, and possibly with continued human existence. Baldelli also shows how anarchist movements, aimed at the abolition of government and the initiation of a reign of freedom and voluntary cooperation, have seriously threatened institutions of government, violence, oppression, and exploitation throughout the world. Social Anarchism is one anarchist's outlook. While offering solutions to difficulties in traditional anarchist thought, Baldelli differs from many other anarchists on certain issues-especially with regard to economic theory. For him, the exploitation of ethical capital is far more relevant to anarchism than the exploitation of labor. He also advances a new theory of value, reexamines the concept of authority and contrasts it with that of power, and provides answers to the question of how to oppose power effectively without perpetuating it. Throughout the book, Baldelli underscores his contention that many paths can lead to an anarchist society and that the respect of those who choose one way versus those who choose another is already anarchism put into practice."--Provided by publisher

The anarchists by Irving Louis Horowitz( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The Anarchists is a rich collection of theories and practices in the words of those who have rebelled against the restrictive institutions and oppressive conditions imposed by state power upon the individual. Idealists and self-seekers, saints and assassins, they have often served as the conscience of the world and have expressed with eloquence and convictions, the deep-seated sense of anarchy that resides, to a greater or lesser degree, in most human beings. As such, this anthology presents the history and philosophy of anarchism in the words of thirty-five of its greatest students, observers, and proponents. In his new introduction to Horowitz points out that anarchism is an ideology in search of a movement, and also a psychology in search of a polity
