Anarchism and Anarcho-Syndicalism
Fredonia Books (NL)
These major writings on the ideology and practice of anarchism have a special value in showing the Marxist position against anarchism.

This collection was ...

The anarcho-syndicalist movement of the 20th century extended to all the industrialized countries of the world and even agricultural regions. This was not a fringe phenomenon but involved millions of workers. Mainstream labour unions and social-democratic parties have become increasingly ...
The Wobblies: The Story of the IWW and Syndicalism in the United States
Ivan R. Dee
Does anyone save historians remember the Wobblies? This nickname for the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), the revolutionary labor union founded in Chicago in 1905, not so long ago was part of the vocabulary of labor and socialist movements everywhere. But few who have heard of the Wobblies know much about their history, aims, or achievements—or their impact on American labor. In this new edition of his classic study of the Wobblies, ...

Syndicalism - The Modern Menace to Capitalism
"[...]is also the reason why leaders of the Industrial Workers of the World continue in the Socialist party, which is antagonistic to the principles as well as to the activities of the I. W. W. Also why a rigid Marxian may propose that the Anarchists work together with the faction that began its career by a most bitter and malicious persecution of one of the pioneers of Anarchism, Michael Bakunin. In short, to the indefinite, uncertain mind of ...
