Anarchists Never Surrender anthologises Victor Serge's previously unavailable texts on anarchism and fleshes out the portrait of this brilliant writer and thinker, a man who legendary American journalist I.F. Stone called one of the """"moral figures of our time."""" It provides a complete picture of Victor Serge's relationship to anarchism. The volume contains writings going back to his teenage years in Brussels, where he became influenced by the doctrine of individualist anarchism.

Review:

"I know of no other writer with whom Serge can be very usefully compared. The essence of the man and his books is to be found in his attitude toward the truth. . . . His life and its choices demonstrate an exemplary truth to which he was prophetically sensitive and which we should now accept as axiomatic. Institutions can be defended by lies, revolutions never." --John Berger, "New Society"

I know of no other writer with whom Serge can be very usefully compared. The essence of the man and his books is to be found in his attitude toward the truth. . . . His life and its choices demonstrate an exemplary truth to which he was prophetically sensitive and which we should now accept as axiomatic. Institutions can be defended by lies, revolutions never. John Berger, "New Society""

"Anarchist ideas will revive each time a new section of humanity rebels against an increasingly unjust world. These writings provide a valuable tool for understanding and criticising them." Ian Birchall, review31.co.uk"

""Anarchists Never Surrender" offers precious documentation of Serge s early career as an anarchist." Staughton Lloyd, "Counterpunch""

About the Author:

Victor Serge was a Russian revolutionary and writer. Originally an anarchist, he joined the Bolsheviks five months after arriving in Petrograd in January 1919 and later worked for the Comintern as a journalist, editor, and translator. He is the author of seven novels, including "Birth of Our Power," "Conquered City," and" Men in Prison," and the history, "Year One of the Russian Revolution." He was critical of the Stalinist regime and remained a revolutionary Marxist until his death. Mitchell Abidor is the principal French translator for the Marxists Internet Archive and has published two collections of his translations, "The Great Anger: Ultra-Revolutionary Writing in France from the Atheist Priest to the Bonnot Gang" and "Communards: The Story of the Paris Commune of 1871 as Told by Those who Fought for It." He lives in Brooklyn. Richard Greeman is the translator and prefacer of five of Victor Serge's seven novels, most recently "Men in Prison." He is a founding member of the libertarian socialist Praxis Center in Moscow and secretary of the Victor Serge Foundation, which supports the Victor Serge Libraries in Moscow and Kiev and underwrites translations and publication of Serge's books in Russian and Arabic. He has published literary, political, and biographical studies of Serge in English, French, Russian, and Spanish as well as prefaces to French editions of Serge's books. He lives in New York City.

Book Description PM Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Providing a complete picture of Victor Serge's relationship to anarchist action and doctrine, this volume contains writings going back to his teenage years in Brussels, where he became influenced by the doctrine of individualist anarchism. At the heart of the anthology are key articles written soon after his arrival in Paris in 1909, when he became editor of the newspaper l'anarchie. In these articles Serge develops and debates his own radical thoughts, arguing the futility of mass action and embracing "illegalism." Serge's involvement with the notorious French group of anarchist armed robbers, the Bonnot Gang, landed Serge in prison for the first time in 1912. The book includes both his prison correspondence with his anarchist comrade Émile Armand and articles written immediately after his release. The book also includes several articles and letters written by Serge after he had left anarchism behind and joined the Russian Bolsheviks in 1919. Here Serge analyzed anarchism and the ways in which he hoped anarchism would leaven the harshness and dictatorial tendencies of Bolshevism. Included here are writings on anarchist theory and history, Bakunin, the Spanish revolution, and the Kronstadt uprising. Anarchists Never Surrender anthologizes Victor Serge's previously unavailable texts on anarchism and fleshes out the portrait of this brilliant writer and thinker, a man I. F. Stone called one of the "moral figures of our time.". Seller Inventory # UGH9781629630311
