The autobiography of the father of anarcho-syndicalism, a German Catholic who fled to London to escape prosecution, taught himself Yiddish, and became the acknowledged leader of the Yiddish-speaking Jewish anarchists. From the Jewish Bakers Union to the 1912 tailor's general strike, which abolished sweatshops, The London Years chronicles the vibrant Jewish immigrant community in London, and how it organized, and fought back against poverty, anti-Semitism, and anti-immigrant hysteria. An incredible window into this now largely-forgotten world, and an engaging autobiography of a remarkable man. This new edition includes a lengthy introduction by Colin Ward, himself a long-time anarchist agitator, propagandist, and editor.

"Rocker's vision stands in opposition to all the dominant tendencies in modern social and political thought."” — Noam Chomsky
