Publisher's Summary

This rather incoherent work by Russian anarchist philosopher Michael Bakunin is described in a way that he described his own life: a fragment. Rife with criticisms on Christianity and the technocracy, Bakunin presses communist values without fear of bordering extremism. Listening to this work is like walking through Bakunin’s disjointed mind; often cutting off and starting mid-sentence, including footnotes several paragraphs long as if his thoughts suddenly start to wander, as well as ending rather abruptly mid-sentence.

The Greatest Socialist Thinker

Mikhail Bakunin was ahead of his times. He put Judaism and Christianity in its place

Important concepts Vs A terrrible recitation

Good book with important criticisms of church and state still relevant today. Read awfully, literally no editing at all throughout. Difficult to follow at times with very unusual pronunciations of words.

Caught in two minds on whether the content is important enough to retain the book as I'm not sure I could make it through the book again.

Such a Shame.
