Giovanni Baldelli

Relatives of Giovanni Baldelli (19141986) sent his unpublished manuscript entitled Not Revolution But Liberation to Christine Townend (who corresponded with the author prior to his death). I offer the manuscript for download for the benefit of those who appreciated Baldelli's earlier publication, Social Anarchism.


Not Revolution But Liberation

One man's vision of an anarchist society based on ethical values without laws, without political authority, and without concentrations of power.

- Giovanni Baldelli (1972)
