Synopsis

This study chronicles the emergence and evolution of the International Working Men's Association, known historically as the First International. Katz offers a non-ideological history of the group and its scores of interesting and fascinating personalities, surveying the First International in the context of the general history of the period 1846-1874, as well as in the context of the contemporary movements of worldwide liberation. The major role the First International played in the process of the revival and expansion of the West European Labour movement is also fully detailed.
