Bringing together eight anarchist, communist, and socialist writers
of the 1930s--Hendrik Jan Mispelblom Beyer, Magdeleine Paz, Sa l
Mohamed, Lyonel Florant, Aron van Dam, Han Kuijsten, M. P. T.
Acharya, and E. K. Nobushima--this book reproduces a November 1935
special issue of the Dutch anti-militarist journal, De Wapens Neder,
collecting essays on anti-militarism, anti-imperialism, and
anti-fascism during the period just after the Italian invasion of
Abyssinia (now Ethiopia), at a time when Japanese aggression in Asia
had been going on for a decade, and at the cusp of the Spanish Civil
voices from India, Algeria, and Japan, the essays gathered here tie
the rise of militarism and fascism to European, American, and
Japanese imperialism. In doing so, they open a window onto the global
networks of the radical left during this era and document an
overlooked history of anarchist anti-colonialism.
