Italian Anarchism, 1864-1892
“Pernicone's book is the most comprehensive and balanced study to date of the Italian anarchist movement.”—American Historical Review
Russian revolutionary Mikhail Bakunin nurtured anarchism in Italy, making it the dominant expression of socialism—triumphant over Marxism and all other revolutionary doctrines. From the First International to the 1872 Anti-Authoritarian International, from government suppression and anarchist insurrection to Errico Malatesta's prominent role in resurrecting the anarchist movement, Nunzio Pernicone's original research provides a critical examination of early anarchist practices.
Nunzio Pernicone is an associate professor of history at Drexel University. He is the author of Carlo Tresca: Portrait of a Rebel.
