Anarchists and syndicalists were centre stage in the history of labour movements in much of ‘Latin’ Europe and in most of Latin America in the first two decades of the twentieth century. Syndicalists and libertarians sought to develop solidarity and workers’ power, rejecting both cautious and conservative trade-unionism and their allied socialist parties. 

Criticising the chauvinism that engulfed the Second International and its most powerful section, German Social-Democracy, they campaigned for class solidarity across frontiers and worked to subvert the discipline that bound soldiers to imperialist states. The second part of this book describes international and national campaigns against militarism and war.
