Bare-bones revolutionary anarchism,
This review is from: Errico Malatesta;: His life and ideas
"One learns through struggle, and...once one begins to enjoy a little freedom one ends by wanting it all."
This collection gathers excerpts from Malatesta's periodical writings over a lifetime of revolutionary activity. Though the excerpts are often repetetive, a clear picture of Malatesta's classical anarchism emerges: a revolutionary, non-pacifist, non-reformist vision informed by decades of engagement in struggle and study. Malatesta is not the most gifted or inspiting writer but his ideas are simple, sturdy, and practical.
I have not read it, but Malatesta's pamphlet "Anarchism" may be a more succinct presentation of his perspective.
