Iain McKay reviews Nunzio Pernicone's book Carlo Tresca: Portrait of a Rebel.
Carlo Tresca is one of those rebel workers whose memory deserves to be honoured and Pernicone's excellent biography does just that. Pernicone's has previously produced an excellent history of the Italian anarchist movement ("Italian Anarchism: 1864-1892", Princeton University Press, 1993) and this work is of equal quality and of interest to anarchists.
Short biography of the Italian-American anarchist Carlo Tresca, written by Nunzio Pernicone.
For three decades Tresca was a free-lance revolutionary paladin among Italian radicals in the United States. His political views had taken shape in his native Abruzzi, where he embraced socialism with the fiery militancy that characterized his entire career.
