      Familiar from an early age with the Spanish Revolution through the testimony of the anarchist exiles in France, he has been one of the most important scholars of a phenomenon that despite being central to the Civil War perhaps one of the 3 episodes most studied in the XX century next to the Russian Revolution and World War II still remains strangely undervalued A militant libertarian since the early 1960 s in the magazine Rouge et Noir , he is currently continuing his political activity in the French CNT.Frank Mintz is the author of the famous book Anarchism and Workers Self Management in Revolutionary Spain and, today, is an obligatory reference in regard to self managed processes in Spain during the years of 1936 39.

    1. The author explores in painstaking detail the ECONOMIC events of the Spanish Civil War that are so often overshadowed by accounts of battle and political struggle. Presented here are descriptions of libertarian communism in action. Huge tracts of farmland collectively managed by farmers and crops distributed freely to workers in urban centers.

    2. This had nothing to do with worker's self management in revolutionary Spain. It was simply a partisan history about how awful and authoritarian the FAI were against the CNT, the CNT was against the grassroots collectivists, and the socialists were in general.

Please let me know when that comes out AK Press.
