Paul Avrich died in New York on the morning of the 17th February 2006 after a long illness. While an exchange student in the USSR, Paul uncovered the Kronshtadt insurrection and the role of anarchists in the Revolution. He was to produce several works based on this information, works which, while controversial, were pioneering.

"Revolution", by Carlo Cafiero 03:27 Fri 03 Aug 2 comments
Black Cat Press is pleased to announce the publication of "Revolution" by Carlo Cafiero for the first time ever in English (indeed nor has it ever been published as a complete volume in the original Italian!). The book brings what is certainly Cafiero's most complete, original work to English-speaking audiences for the first time. It is also an extremely important work in that it is one of the earliest attempts at compiling a complete theoretical view of the revolutionary ideal of anarchist communism. [Italiano] [Nederlands]
A visit to the Kate Sharpley Library (2012) 18:48 Sat 21 Jul 0 comments
I’ve just come back from visiting the Kate Sharpley Library in California. Things have changed from the days when I could get there on the bus and we were buying our first filing cabinet. Lots of filing cabinets now, as well as boxes like the Left Bank Books archive. It’s good to look at the non-fiction shelves, seeing ‘old friends’ and new acquisitions.

The Life of Bakunin: anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism, anti-statism May 31 0 comments
We do not see Bakunin as a god who never made mistakes. Of course he was not perfect. was a man, but a man who gave his all for the struggle of the oppressed, a revolutionary hero who deserves our admiration and respect. “From Bakunin, we can learn much about revolutionary activism. We can learn even more about the ideas needed to win the age-old fight between exploiter and exploited, between worker and peasant, on the one hand, and boss and ruler on the other. The greatest honor we can do his memory is to fight today and always for human freedom and workers liberation.”
