Bakunin on Anarchism e-book

by Sam Dolgoff,Michael Bakunin


Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin (/bəˈkuːnɪn/; 30 May 1814 – 1 July 1876) was a Russian revolutionary anarchist and founder of collectivist anarchism

Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin (/bəˈkuːnɪn/; 30 May 1814 – 1 July 1876) was a Russian revolutionary anarchist and founder of collectivist anarchism. He is considered among the most influential figures of anarchism and a major founder of the social anarchist tradition. Bakunin's prestige as an activist also made him one of the most famous ideologues in Europe, gaining substantial influence among radicals throughout Russia and Europe.

This single volume contains most of the important writings of Michael Bakunin, the founder of modern anarchism

Unfortunately, few of the texts included are unabridged. Most have beeen cut and pasted by Dolgoff, often on very flimsy grounds. This single volume contains most of the important writings of Michael Bakunin, the founder of modern anarchism. Some of the articles in this collection are unfinished-left in that condition as the author headed off to the next stop in his life as a professional revolutionary.

A selection of writings by one of the most important practitioners of social revolution. "The best available in English. Bakunin's insights into power and authority, and the conditions of freedom, are refreshing, original and still unsurpassed in clarity and vision. I read this selection with great pleasure."--Noam Chomsky

The title of this book is on target in that it consists of speeches, letters, pamphlets, and manifestos written by one of the founders of anarchism, Mikhail Bakunin. The editor, who also prepared the lucid translation, provides helpful introductory material before each selection. The book is organized chronologically rather than thematically, but this allows the reader to observe the transitions in Bakunin’s thought and emphases over the years.

The selection of content is good, albeit somewhat repetitive. However, for Bakunin to repeat his key ideas in his various speeches and publications would have been expected. Indeed, it is the evolving key ideas over the years that make Bakunin so interesting. Although the editor extracted excerpts for the published text, I would have preferred to have read more items in their entirety even if it had meant reading fewer items.

More than anything, this book demonstrates Bakunin’s allegiance to the libertarian faction of the socialist party. His essential and fundamental concern with *freedom* shines through on every page. Unlike Marx and his followers who sought legitimacy by becoming engaged in political actions such as getting candidates elected to office, Bakunin and his comrades strongly believed it was necessary to shatter all such institutions. Bakunin’s belief’s about humanity’s willingness to work together in solidarity may have been naive, but he held to that belief ardently nonetheless.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in getting an understanding of anarchism. I had previously read two highly recommended secondary texts on anarchism, but it was not until I read this book that I felt I had truly begun to have an understanding of the subject.

Excellent collection of Bakunin's texts. This book chronicles his best works in chronological order. The supplementary workers section is also amazing.

For anyone interested in the philosophies of anarchism, this is the perfect place to start. And for those interested in general political theory, it would be difficult to call your research complete without reading Bakunin's texts. This book contains a truly astounding array of Bakunin's writings, arranged chronologically...from his pre-anarchist texts, to the staple polemics of Bakuninist anarchism, to his final works...with insightful notes along the way, which aid greatly in reading the texts from the proper historical perspective.
I have an old edition of this book from 1972, and I believe it spent well over a decade out of print. Thankfully, AK Press, who can always be counted on to reprint material such as this, have put it back out there, so that a new generation can experience the powerful words of this indispensable political voice.

The wild and turbulent life of Michael Bakunin did not lend itself to creating a complete literary legacy for modern day students of his life. This single volume contains most of the important writings of Michael Bakunin, the founder of modern anarchism.
Some of the articles in this collection are unfinished--left in that condition as the author headed off to the next stop in his life as a professional revolutionary. Still, despite (perhaps because of) the incomplete nature of some of the articles, an accurate feel for the tumultuous life of the writer is conveyed through the pages of this volume.
For students seeking a representative collection of the writings of Michael Bakunin, this book represents one of the few choices available in English.
