By Augustin Souchy Bauer, Abe Bluestein
In 1936-37 Augustin Souchy Bauer visited cities and villages in Aragón that, quickly after July 19, 1936, started to dwell a life-style with out precedent in all heritage. one by one they collectivised the land and confirmed libertarian communism, spontaneously — yet with all due deliberation. the tale of this journey that Souchy made including Emma Goldman a part of the way in which is a record of amazing significance not just for the evidence provided yet since it informs the reader of this present day how and in what situations an idea considered as simply utopian until eventually then turned a fact. . The reader will learn the way an financial and social method constructed that was once really communal and anti-authoritarian. Anarchists of the nationwide Confederation of work and the Iberian Federation of Anarchists (CNT-FAI), socialists of the overall Union of staff (UGT) and individualists lived jointly within the related neighborhood in a life-style no longer even imagined until eventually then.
