Engineer George Barrett was one of the anarchists’ key organizers through the period of the Great Unrest of 1910-14, a syndicalist-led uprising which shook Britain just before the first world war began.

A writer for anarchist journal Freedom, he also founded the Anarchist alongside producing several seminal texts both before and during World War I, until his untimely death in 1917.

This selection of Barrett’s essays, edited by Iain McKay, offers a unique political view from the time and his arguments remain incisive.
