Translated from Los anarquistas en la crisis politica espanola (1962), this is the most comprehensive, critical history of the Spanish Civil War 1936-39, and the role played in it by the CNT-FAI, the anarcho-syndicalists and anarchist. The first hundred pages are a brief survey of the working class movement in Spain, going back to the foundation of the Spanish section of the First International in 1869, and the political struggles which were a prelude to the Civil War.
