"May all the anarchists, all the libertarians, all freedomloving human beings become a united force, which, while preserving the autonomy of each of its members, will practise mutual aid among all of them. May this force, by overthrowing authority in one place, weakening it in another, through our own genuine progress, develop in innumerable ways in order to advance liberty on a small scale and a large one, within ourselves and around us, anywhere and everywhere. Let us have hope. For authority, powerful as it may be, can bring forth nothing but evil. All the good in the world has come, is now coming and will always come only with liberty and from liberty."

Max Nettlau, who was born in 1865 near Vienna and died in 1944 in Amsterdam, was the most proficient and still is the most important historian of anarchism. This onevolume introduction to the history of anarchist ideas and early movements, summarising the author's monumental 9volume history and several biographies, is the most reliable guide to the early anarchist movement up to the 1930s that has yet been produced.
This English translation of Max Nettlau's Spanish text of 193234 was made by the late Ida Pilat Isca, and its publication was financed by a donation from the late Valerio Isca. The translation was first edited by David Poole and Carol Saunders, and later revised and compared with the original. Much of the production work was done by Stephanie Cloete.
Bibliographical references have been completed where appropriate and integrated into appendices following the text. Biographical and other information has also been integrated into the index.
