      December 21, The Bonnot Gang attacks a bank in Chantilly. Their robberies, daring and violent, would give them a lasting notoriety in France. It is a good read and action-packed; but also meticulously researched with an impressive attention to detail. A group of bandits went on a rampage throughout the city and its suburbs, robbing banks and wealthy Parisians, killing anyone who got in their way, and always managing to stay one step ahead of the police.

      At the same time, anarchist theory was made more acceptable by proposing the 'commune' as the practical base for the organization of the new society, as opposed to the 'collective'; 'need' became the new criterion for the distribution of goods and services, which were to be freely available to all, regardless of the work each person had done; anarcho-communism was born. Without a doubt. Emboldened by the egoistic philosophy, they had no compunction about shooting and killing people if that was the fastest way to get what they wanted, and not just class enemies. Subscribe As someone who has spent a lot of time around self-described anarchists, I often find it hard to understand how some people see them. Extensively researched and fully illustrated with rare period photos, drawings, and maps, this updated edition is the best account of the Bonnot Gang to appear in any language. The paper that he launched the following year called Temps Nouveaux was soberly written and gained a wide audience in 'fashionable' circles sympathetic to anarchism.

      The bloody repression of the Commune marked the birth of the Third Republic and served as a constant reminder to workers that they could expect nothing from this 'New Order' except the most brutal repression. Grave saw in crime a corruption that would make people unsuited for the high ideals of a free society. At sixteen he was a known anarchist in prison for manufacturing explosives. The take was equal to 30, francs.

The Bonnot gang book

Well, not distant to the anarchist movement that was building out of the revolutionary discontent that was felt in the hearts of those slaving day in and out for the profits of a different class. It recounted the exploits of olden-time brigands and outlaws, and exhorted contemporaries to follow their example.

The result is a lively, erudite work that, without romanticizing the Bonnot gang's crimes, manages to humanize those in their milieu, and perhaps suggest lessons for the present. It would be well in this regard that the new morality show itself, that it enter into the spirit and habit.
