Featuring a riveting collection of anarcho-communist poetry, essays, articles, and diary entries, this translation of Erich MA¼hsamas legendary writings introduces the German revolutionaryas ideas to English speakers for the first time. Uniting a burning desire for individual liberation with radical, left-wing convictions and bohemian strains with syndicalist tendencies, this diverse body of work not only includes his main political pamphlet and one of the key texts in the history of German anarchism but also some of his best-known poems, unbending defenses of political prisoners, passionate calls for solidarity among the proletariat, recollections of the utopian community of Monte VeritAn, debates on the rights of homosexuals and women, and the role of intellectuals in the class struggle. Perfect for anarchists, activists, or those interested in German history, this expansive and enlightening compilation provides a deep understanding of this important historical figure.Today, whenever an anarchist uses it, he hears from his own comrades that it belongs to the party communists. Likewise, what has been achieved by using a black flag instead of the red one that has always indicated the unification of the proletariat? ... it developed at the time of the Sozialistengesetze, at least for a certain period?17 Trying to find an answer would certainly make an interesting study.
