New publication from Black Cat Press, Edmonton, Canada

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]

Carlo Cafiero

Revolution

Edited and translated by Nestor McNab
with an introduction by Pier Carlo Masini


Carlo Cafiero (1846–1892) is undoubtedly one of the most important figures of the First International both in Italy, his home country, and in general throughout Europe. But this mild-mannered anarchist is all too often remembered only for some of the curious episodes in his life (his participation in the Benevento uprising, his "gift" of La Baronata to Bakunin and anarchist revolutionaries), rather than for his ideas and the enormous influence he had on the early socialist movement in Italy.

This 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.


Nestor McNab is a teacher and translator living in Rome, Italy. He has translated and edited the English edition of "The International Anarchist Congress. Amsterdam (1907)." (Black Cat Press, 2009)

Pier Carlo Masini (1923–1998) was a noted historian who specialized in the history of the First International in Italy. A prominent activist in the anarchist movement in his youth, in later life he devoted himself to research and publicizing the history of the movement.
