Elephant Editions

Barcelona 19th July 1936

A glimpse into the elsewhere of an upturning so great that it is unimaginable, where certainties are swept away in an instant and life itself takes on a fragile intensity. These accounts contain a grain of everything it is possible to foresee of the ultimate fight for freedom and other aspects that…

Belgrado Pedrini – “We were the rebels, we were the outlaws…”

These few lines that I am about to write to express my impressions on reading this book come straight from the heart. I won’t talk about methods and strategies of struggle this time, but of the emotions that are the very reason of the latter. Reading Belgrado Pedrini’s words and the events that…

I am well aware that the following considerations might move some to laughter, and I…

Alfredo M. Bonanno – Science and the Social Revolution

To govern life through science can have no other result than the brutalization of mankind. Bakunin Science today To face the problem of science in a perspective of social revolution within the restricted limits of an essay for a review might seem rash, and that is why some initial clarification is r…
