No jacket."It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that.

Book Description Condition: New. This is the definitive biography of the legendary Spanish anarchist and military strategist, Buenaventura Durruti (1896-1936). Paz seamlessly weaves intimate biographical details of Durruti's life -- his progression from factory worker and father to bank robber, political exile and, eventually, revolutionary leader -- with extensive historical background, behind-the-scenes governmental intrigue, and blow-by-blow accounts of major battles of the Spanish Civil War. This is as much a biography of a nation and of a tumultuous historical era. The author joined the Durruti Column at 15, was a guerrilla fighter against the Franco regime and spent eleven years in prison. Seller Inventory # 2229
