Facebook page of 'Black Flame' reorganised and rebooted

The Facebook page of 'Black Flame' has been reorganised and rebooted, now carrying regular updates related to the book by Lucien van der Walt and Michael Schmidt...
Published in 2009, 'Black Flame' has been a great success. It has generated debate, has helped recover the global history of anarchism/ syndicalism, and the strategic tactical and analytical debates in the historic movement.

There have been launches in Brazil, Canada, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, and the UK, with Sweden coming up soon.

The first of a two-volume set, 'Black Flame' re-examines anarchism's democratic class politics, its vision of a decentralized planned economy, and its impact on popular struggles in five continents over the last 150 years. 'Black Flame's' approach is thematic and analytical, drawing out key themes in the history (for example, pioneering role in Asian and African trade unions, class composition), and theory (on the one hand, the core contours of anarchist/ syndicalist theory and debates within that theory, and, on the other, the key strategic and tactical debates in the historic movement)
