Anarcho-Syndicalism And The Class Struggle

Introductory talk by one of the co-authors followed by discussion

We are living in times of unprecedented attacks on our living conditions on all fronts, of rising social tensions and sometimes violent eruptions of class conflict. And yet if anything, the surprise is not that there has been riots and the odd strike, but that there have been so few. How are we to make sense of this. How are we to fight back, to take the initiative? Against capitalism, what do we w...ant to put in its place? The 20th century discredited state socialism, and rightly so. But with it, a whole history of international class struggle, of revolutions and counter-revolutions, victories and defeats, spontaneous uprisings and vast workers' organisation has been eclipsed too.

The book aims to recover some of the lost history, in order to set out a revolutionary strategy for the present conditions.
