"Magnificent."--Paul Preston, author of The Spanish Holocaust

Brick maker by trade, revolutionary anarchist and historian by default; this is a study of the life of Jose Peirats (1908-1989) and the labor union that gave him life, the CNT. It is the biography of an individual but also of a collective agent--the working class Peirats was born into--and the affective ties of kinship, friendship, and community that cemented into a movement, the most powerful of its type in the world.

Chris Ealham is the author of Anarchism and the City: Revolution and Counter-revolution in Barcelona, 1898-1937.
