Relendo... Revendo. Relembrando e Reaprendendo.
A fine collection of classic anarchist essays and articles on the surface. However, for a collection compiled in 1977, this book should have had much more feminist awareness and anti-patriarchy focus. Emma Goldman is the only woman included in the compilation, and none of the essays, or the introduction, approaches uncovering sexism or patriarchy, or the long-standing resistance to them.

Should it be renamed The Manarchist Reader?
