3.40 to 4.20 — Revolution and the State: Anarchism in the Spanish Civil War. Danny Evans first book focuses on the radical anarchists who sought to advance the revolutionary agenda during the civil war, and the complications arising from anarchist involvement in the wartime reconstruction of the Republican state.
The talk will investigate the response of the radicals to these multiple challenges, consider their achievements and limitations, and hopefully prompt reflection on what resources this hugely significant episode holds for the struggles of today.
Danny is a specialist on Spanish anarchism and has written on the movement’s relationship to utopianism, women’s liberation and anti-fascism.
