Not Our War: Writings Against the First World War
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Some of the voices in this book came to oppose World War I after reflecting on experience, others opposed it on principle before a shot was fired—they may have been few in number, but gradually their influence rose. This anthology presents diverse voices of men and women who questioned and opposed the war: liberals, radicals and pacifists, anarchists and socialists, soldiers and noncombatants. Featured writers include: James Connolly, Eugene Debs, Emma Goldman, Keir Hardie, Jean Jaurès, Louis Lecoin, V. I. Lenin, John Maclean, Errico Malatesta, Sylvia Pankhurst, Siegfried Sassoon. They are American, Asian, British, French, German, Irish, Italian, and Russian. Some of the texts are newly translated or appear in English the first time.
