MAN! An Anthology of Anarchist Ideas, Essays, Poetry and Commentaries Edited by Marcus Graham
The monthly journal MAN! was published in the United States from 1933 until 1940, when it was suppressed by the federal government and its editor, Marcus Graham, thrown in jail. Compiled into this 638 page book is some of the best material from that journal, covering such diverse subjects as Spain, technology, anarchism and poetry (plus much more). As relevant today as it was during the seven and a half years of publication.
