      An altogether fun, fantastic book Twenty or so short sketches of both the leading and some lesser known anarchists from the Golden Age of Anarchism Avrich is a fine writer and clearly is sympathetic to the anarchists he portrays, while still remaining objective and setting forth the flaws in both their reasonings and character Unlike many other books on anarchism, this is not weighed down by either too in depth descriptions of the individual anarchist s political theories where one thinks he is [...]

      Good book I was mainly interested in Bakunin, Nachaev and Kropotkin, and read those portions only The discussion of the ideological dimension is clear, but not very complicated or demanding Avrich is clearly a good source for this topic, and thnx owed to the individual who rec d it to me.

      A must read for anyone interested in Chicago history, along with his book on the Haymarket Riots Hey, why don t they teach us in high school that one of our Presidents was assassinated by an anarchist McKinley Go visit Bughouse Square and pay homage

      This was the book that convinced me to become an anarchist in 2007, when I was 24 years old I don t remember much of the book now, but surely something that convinces you of a worldview deserves at the very least four stars.
