Anarchism in Latin America
Ángel Cappelletti & Gabriel Palmer-Fernández (tr.) 1993/2017 429p 5 x 8
“The available material in English discussing Latin American anarchism tends to be fragmentary, country-specific, or focused on single individuals. This new translation of Ángel Cappelletti’s wide-ranging, country-by- country historical overview of anarchism’s social and political achievements in fourteen Latin American nations is one of the few book-length regional histories published in English. With a foreword by the translator and an introduction by Romina Akemi and Javier Sethness-Castro.”
The countries examined are Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Columbia, Venezuela, Panama (and Central America in general), Antilles, Cuba, and Mexico. The text mostly focuses on the ‘classical era’ of anarchism in the 1880-1930s.
