Jose Peirats Author- THE CNT IN THE SPANISH REVOLUTION Volume 1

THE CNT IN THE SPANISH REVOLUTION  Volume 1

by Jose Peirats     Edited by Chris Ealham

THE CNT IN THE SPANISH REVOLUTION is the history of one of he most original and audacious, and arguably also the most far-reaching, of all the 20th-century revolutions.  It is the history of the giddy years of political change and hope in 1930s Spain, when the so-called “Generation of ’36,” Peirats’s own generation, rose up against the oppressive structures of Spanish society.  It is also a history of a revolution that failed, crushed in the jaws of it enemies on both the reformist left and the reactionary right.

Jose Peirats’s account is effectively the official CNT history of the war, passionate, partisan, but, above all, intelligent.  Its huge sweeping canvas covers all areas of the anarchist experience- the spontaneous militias, the revolutionary collectives, the moral dilemmas occasioned by the clash of revolutionary ideals and the stark reality of the war effort against Franco and his German Nazi and Italian Fascist allies.  This new edition is carefully indexed in a way that converts the work into a usable tool for historians and makes it much easier for the general reader to dip in with greater purpose and pleasure.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Working at the age of eight, Jose Peirats joined the anarcho-syndicalist CNT at 14.  He received his education inside the factories, union centers, and anarchist-run schools of Barcelona, becoming one of the great “intellectuals” of the Spanish anarchist movement, publishing a stream of books, pamphlets, and newspaper articles.

This book reveals that some Egyptian ruins show markings of a sophisticated machining process.  This astonishing discovery, along with new studies of the Great Pyramid’s chambers, suggests that the civilization responsible for such magnificent monuments is much older than presently believed.
