Writings on the Paris Commune
The Paris Commune in 1871 played a key role in the development of socialist thought. In the midst of a seige by German troops, the workers of Paris rose in revolt and established their own government. Both communists and anarchists claimed the Commune for their own. This volume includes essays on the Paris Commune by Karl Marx, Freidrich Engels, Mikhail Bakunin, Peter Kropotkin, and Vladimir Lenin.
