The Anarchist Movement in Japan

Not many days month we came across this pamphlet, written by British John Crump, on the Japanese anarchist movement, reissued by the Japanese anarchist communist federation in ’96.
We immediately thought that it could be a good starting point to inform about what comrades were doing in other latitudes of the world, overturning as much as possible a Eurocentrism very present in the information and in the anti-authoritarian historiography “of movement”.
Like every good book of historical investigation, it does not pretend to assert truth or to indicate the lines to follow, and very often – starting from the introduction of the comrades – we found ourselves “turning our noses up” on some positions. In spite of this, we believe it could be a good contribution to the rediscovery of stories that would otherwise be buried.
