Publisher’s text: "Reading the ideas of Maurice Brinton for the first time proves discomforting to most—and downright insufferable to many. The most prolific contributor to the British Solidarity Group (1961–1992), he sought to inspire a mass movement based on libertarian socialist politics. Attempting to blow away the bad air of the "Old" and "New" Left alike, Brinton used the past as a guide—but not an anchor—in his visionary writings. With unrestrained passion, clarity, and consistency, he examines the totality of revolutionary politics and flays the "revolutionaries" who obstruct their realization. Included here are Brinton’s finest essays, pamphlets, eye-witness reportage, and his most influential works—Irrational in Politics and Bolsheviks and Workers’ Control."
