really liked it
Recommended for: my comrades in the history dept.

This guy actually wrote this book while in prison for his political activities, which I think is a neat little fact. A marxist analysis, so of course there are some dubious conjectures which turn all peasant struggles into communist resistance movements...But there were indeed a lot anarchists and socialists involved in the Revolution, and leftist ideas definitely permeated the rhetoric of revolutionaries. I really enjoyed this analysis.
