Summary: "This is an extraordinarily affecting and profound account of the anarchist movement in Spain, from the perspective of the ordinary women and men who constituted its core and whose lives were roiled by its turbulence. As a demonstration of how anthropologists can understand the grand events of history as forms of experience that resonate in everyday life for long decades after they occur, this book has become a historical milestone in its own right." --Mich
ael Herzfeld

"For its intelligence and humanitarian achievements, for its political honesty, for its power and its beauty (there is no other word), this book deserves to be called a masterpiece." --American Ethnologist

Jerome R. Mintz's classic study of the lives of Andalusian campesinos who were swept up by one of the 20th century's pivotal social movements provided a new framework for understanding the tragic events that tilted Spain toward civil war. In a new foreword, James W. Fernandez reflects on the fieldwork that led to the book and its contribution to subsequent developments in the ethnography of Europe and the historiography of modern Spain.
