The historical assessments of Left unity in 1930s India misrepresent activities designed to achieve unity. The common treatment of the relationship between Indian socialists and communists emphasizes disunity and the inability to find common ground. Scholarly discussions about unity in fact highlight its impracticality and the inevitability of its failure. This book proposes that during this moment, for socialists and communists, unity was not just an ideal, but was in fact considered to be a possible and very realizable goal. Rather than focusing exclusively on ideological fissures as the literature does, the book explores the possibilities for unity. The author investigates the United Front as a conceptual framework for collaboration, as a scheme for assessing the extent to which cooperation between socialists and communists was feasible and practicable during the mid-to-late-1930s in India. He employs the notion of United Front as an instrument for identifying and compensating for the prejudices which permeate sources about the cooperation between the Congress Socialist Party (CSP) and the Communist Party of India (CPI). The author challenges the historicism found in extant scholarly assessments of Left unity by illustrating the ways in which the partners engaged in united front activities and approached the common goal of Left unity despite their fragmented ideological perspectives. The book presents the United Front not as an unsuccessful phase of collaboration, but rather as a concerted attempt to achieve ideological convergence and Left homogeneity which ultimately failed to radicalize Indian nationalism because, in reality, conditions for Left unity did not exist. The book will be of interest to academics studying South Asian history and politics in particular, and socialism, communism, nationalism and imperialism more generally.

This book examines Dalit mobilization and the transformation of rural power relations in the context of intense agrarian violence involving Maoist guerrillas and upper caste militias backed by state forces in Bihar in the 1980s. The book investigates why thousands of Dalits took up arms and highlights the specificities of Dalit participation in the Maoist Movement and develops an anthropology of the Maoist Revolution in India.

Anarchy is not disorder, but the rejection of hierarchies, it is the possibility of a society based on solidarity, consensus and cooperation. Sebastián Endara conjugates the anarchist postulates with the principles and qualities of the Andean cosmovision, and gives us a different conception in front of a model of individualistic society that is leading us, this time, to chaos and social anomie. Anarkía, perspectives for a cooperative society is a necessary book to understand the crisis of the development model in which we live and the alternatives that exist and are in practice.

  • Understanding communities
  • Maps of idealism: intentional community landscapes

  • Material visions: artifacts in community contexts
  • Seeking kaweah

  • Appendix: archaeologically studied intentional community sites.
Utopian and intentional communities have dotted the American landscape since the colonial era, yet only in recent decades have archaeologists begun analyzing the material culture left behind by these groups. The case studies in this volume use archaeological evidence to reveal how these communities upheld their societal ideals - and how some diverged from them in everyday life.Surveying settlement patterns, the built environment, and even the smallest artifacts such as tobacco pipes and buttons, Stacy Kozakavich explores groups including the Shakers, the Harmony Society, the Moravians, the Ephrata Cloister, the Oneida community, Brook Farm, Mormon towns, the Llano del Rio colony, and the Kaweah colony. She urges researchers not to dismiss these communal experiments as quaint failures but to question how the lifestyles of the people in these groups are interpreted for visitors today. She reminds us that there is inspiration to be found in the unique ways these intentional communities pursued radical social goals.

  • Des mineurs, un patron, une église -- Renverser la table ou remplir les urnes ? -- Passage à l'acte -- La clarification politique -- Trois procès consécutifs -- Les anarchistes retournent dans les bois -- L'escalade -- "L'attentat fatal" -- Retour en prison -- Dernières cartouches -- Destins croisés.
"Dans la nuit du 15 au 16 août 1882, de jeunes mineurs en rébellion contre la toute-puissance de l'Église, alliée au patronat des mines, font exploser la rosace et l'entrée d'une chapelle dans le bassin houiller de Saône-et-Loire. C'est le début d'une longue série d'actions qui vont secouer pendant trois ans la région de Montceau-les-Mines au rythme des dynamitages d'édifices religieux et de domiciles de petits chefs à la solde du patronat. Animés par un esprit de révolte, ces anarchistes sont connus sous le nom de la Bande noire. Ils se réunissent dans les bois ou dans les auberges pour préparer des coups qu'ils réalisent le plus souvent à la faveur de l'obscurité. Moins résignés que leurs aînés, ils ne cesseront de dénoncer la dureté de leurs conditions de travail au fond des puits, mais aussi la misère sociale qui règne au dehors, où l'impitoyable patron de la Compagnie des mines impose un redoutable ordre moral et défend les pires injustices. A partir de nombreux documents d'archives et témoignages d'époque, ce livre, récit palpitant au plus près des protagonistes, revient sur l'histoire mouvementée de la Bande noire. Il montre comment, quelques années avant les célèbres attentats anarchistes perpétrés à Paris dans les années 1890, de jeunes révoltés firent de la propagande par le fait leur meilleure arme pour renverser la table et échapper à l'enfer de la mine."--Page 4 of cover.
