This Spartacist pamphlet reprints articles by Spartacist League/U.S. Central Committee member Joseph Seymour which were originally published as a series in Workers Vanguard running from 1 March to 30 August 1996.
Parts One through Three deal with the origins of anarchism and the views of its leading figures such as Proudhon and Bakunin up through the 1871 Paris Commune and the split in the First International. Parts Four and Five analyse the anarchist and syndicalist movements in the period preceding World War I. Parts Six and Seven discuss the realignment of the left and international workers movement under the impact of the first imperialist world war, the 1917 October Revolution and the founding of the Communist International.
