Ende 1936 kam Orwell als Zeitungsreporter nach Barcelona, um über den Bürgerkrieg zu berichten. Er schloß sich der Miliz P.O.U.M. an, der Arbeiterpartei der marxistischen Einigung, und kämpfte den Winter über an der Front in Aragonien. Als er wenig später mit ansehen mußte, wie die Kommunisten bei der Ausschaltung der ihnen nicht genehmen Truppen Methoden der faschistischen Geheimpolizei anwandten, wurde er zu einem der erbittertsten Feinde des sowjetischen Totalitarismus.

Discover Entdecke Decouvrir Anarchism IV What is Anarchism? Anarchism is a political theory, which is skeptical of the justification of authority and power, especially political power. Anarchism is usually grounded in moral claims about the importance of individual liberty. Anarchists also offer a positive theory of human flourishing, based upon an ideal of non-coercive consensus building. Anarchism has inspired practical efforts at establishing utopian communities, radical and revolutionary political agendas, and various forms of direct action. This entry primarily describes “philosophical anarchism”: it focuses on anarchism as a theoretical idea and not as a form of political activism. While philosophical anarchism describes a skeptical theory of political legitimation, anarchism is also a concept that has been employed in philosophical and literary theory to describe a sort of anti- foundationalism. Philosophical anarchism can mean either a theory of political life that is skeptical of attempts to justify state authority or a philosophical theory that is skeptical of the attempt to assert firm foundations for knowledge. Anarchism in political philosophy maintains that there is no legitimate political or governmental authority. In political philosophy anarchy is an important topic for consideration—even for those who are not anarchists—as the a-political background condition against which various forms of political organization are arrayed, compared, and justified. Anarchy is often viewed by non-anarchists as the unhappy or unstable condition in which there is no legitimate authority. Anarchism as a philosophical idea is not necessarily connected to practical activism. There are political anarchists who take action in order to destroy what they see as illegitimate states. The popular imagination often views anarchists as bomb-throwing nihilists. But philosophical anarchism is a theoretical standpoint. In order to decide who (and whether) one should act upon anarchist insight, we require a further theory of political action, obligation, and obedience grounded in further ethical reflection. Simmons explains that philosophical anarchists “do not take the illegitimacy of states to entail a strong moral imperative to oppose or eliminate states” (Simmons 2001: 104). Some anarchists remain obedient to ruling authorities; others revolt or resist in various ways. The question of action depends upon a theory of what sort of political obligation follows from our philosophical, moral, political, religious, and aesthetic commitments.

From 1868 through 1939, anarchists' migrations from Spain to Argentina and back again created a transnational ideology and influenced the movement's growth in each country. James A. Baer follows the lives, careers, and travels of Diego Abad de Santillán, Manuel Villar, and other migrating anarchists to highlight the ideological and interpersonal relationships that defined a vital era in anarchist history. Drawing on extensive interviews with Abad de Santillán, José Grunfeld, and Jacobo Maguid, along withunusual access to anarchist records and networks, Baer uncovers the ways anarchist migrants in pursuit of jobs and political goals formed a critical nucleus of militants, binding the two countries in an ideological relationship that profoundly affected the history of both. He also considers the impact of reverse migration and discusses political decisions that had a hitherto unknown influence on the course of the Spanish Civil War. Personal in perspective and transnational in scope, Anarchist Immigrants in Spain and Argentina offers an enlightening history of a movement and an era.

1932 ver ffentlichte Erich M hsam seine programmatische Schrift "Die Befreiung der Gesellschaft vom Staat" mit dem Untertitel "Was ist kommunistischer Anarchismus?" als Sonderheft seiner Zeitung "Fanal." Hierin entwirft er eine Gesellschaftsvorstellung ohne Macht und Staat und erl utert das anarchistische Weltbild. In seinem Vorwort schreibt er: "Eine Arbeit, die als Ersatz f r eine am Erscheinen verhinderte, dem Tagesgeschehen angepa te Zeitschrift den Augenblick berdauern m chte, kann sich nur mit der Welt- und Lebensanschauung befassen, welche den Geist der Zeitschrift bestimmt hat und weiter bestimmen soll. Dem Anarchisten war also die Aufgabe gestellt, die Grundz ge seines anarchistischen Lehrgeb udes zu entwerfen. Das habe ich versucht. Immer wieder h ren wir die Frage von Personen, denen die Gedankenwelt des Anarchismus nicht vertraut ist: Was wollt ihr eigentlich? Wie stellt ihr euch eine Gesellschaft ohne Staat und Obrigkeit vor? Liegt nicht in der Bezeichnung Kommunistischer Anarchismus" ein innerer Widerspruch? Darauf wollte ich einigerma en umfassend und in nicht schwer verst ndlicher Form kurzen Bescheid geben. Den eigenen Genossen wollte ich gleichzeitig ein Bild der anarchistischen Gedankenwelt zeichnen, das jeder nach seiner Neigung erg nzen oder einschr nken mag und an dessen Linien er seine Ansichten berpr fen und befestigen kann. Auf geschichtliche Beweisf hrung und wissenschaftliche Unterbauung der hier vorgetragenen Gedanken habe ich verzichtet, auch davon abgesehen, ltere anarchistische Schriften zur St tzung und Vergleichung meiner Meinung heranzuziehen. Kein Gedanke wird dadurch richtiger, da schon ein andrer ihn fr her ge u ert hat. Auch glaube ich, da es der Lebendigkeit meiner Beweisf hrung am zutr glichsten ist, wenn ich sie ausschlie lich in meine eigenen Worte fasse. Daher findet sich in der vorliegenden Arbeit kein einziges Zitat, au er dem an die Spitze gestellten Satz Wielands, der, vor 150 Jahren geschrieben, beweisen soll, wi

This is a long-awaited translation of a definitive account of the Republican Army in the Spanish Civil War. Michael Alpert examines the origins, formation and performance of the Republican Army and sets the Spanish Civil War in its broader military context. He explores the conflicts between communists and Spanish anarchists about how the war should be fought, as well as the experience of individual conscripts, problems of food, clothing and arms, and the role of women in the new army. The book contains extensive discussion of international aspects, particularly the role of the International Brigades and of the Soviet Russian advisers. Finally, it discusses the final uprising of professional Republican officers against the Government and the almost unconditional surrender to Franco. Professor Alpert also provides detailed statistics for the military forces available to Franco and to the Republic and biographies of the key figures on both sides.

In the essays that make up this book, Murray Bookchin places the Spanish anarchist and anarcho-syndicalist movements of the 1930s in the context of revolutionary worker's movements of the pre-World War II era. These articles describe, analyze, and evaluate the last great proletarian revolution of the past two centuries. They form indispensable supplements to Bookchin's larger work, The Spanish Anarchists: The Heroic Years, 1868–1936. Read together, these works constitute a highly informative and theoretically significant assessment of the anarchist and anarcho-syndicalist movements in Spain. They are invaluable for any reader concerned with the place of the Spanish Revolution in history and with the accomplishments, insights, and failings of the anarcho-syndicalist movements.
