Lec 8 - Dynamite Club: The Anarchists

"Lec 8 - Dynamite Club: The Anarchists" France Since 1871 (HIST 276) Anarchists, unlike syndicalists and other leftists, seek to destroy the state rather than to capture state power for themselves. Emile Henry and other late nineteenth-century radicals inaugurated the modern practice of terrorism in their individualism and their indiscriminate choice of civilian targets. Despite the terrifying consequences of individual acts of terrorism, these pale in comparison to the consequences of state terrorism. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
