From the Publisher
Anarchism was the driving force behind Cuba's revolutionary and labor movements from their dawn until well into the 20th century. Anarchists bore primary responsibility for organizing workers in Cuba's most important industries, tobacco and sugar. At the height of their influence in the 1920s, Cuba's anarchists controlled the Cuban union movement, provided free nonreligious schools for poor children, provided meeting places for Cuba's working class, organized campesinos into unions and agricultural collectives, and published newspapers and magazines across the island. Later, they would take an active part in the resistance to the Machado, Batista, and Castro dictatorships. This book presents their inspiring story.

About the Author
Frank Fernandez is the author of "La Sangre de Santa Agueda," a history and analysis of a pivotal event in Cuban and Spanish history: the assassination of the Spanish Premier Canovas del Castillo in 1897. He was also, for over a decade, the editor of the Movimiento Libertario Cubano en el Exilio's magazine, "Guangara Libertaria."
