Georges Sorel-Reflections on Violence

“Georges Sorel’s Reflections on Violence is one of the most controversial books of the twentieth century… It heralded the political turmoil of the decades that were to follow its publication and provided inspiration for Marxists and Fascists alike. Developing the ideas of violence, myth and the general strike, Sorel celebrates the heroic action of the proletariat as a means of saving the modern world from decadence and of reinvigorating the capitalist spirit of a timid bourgeoisie.”

From the Jeremy Jennings edition published by Cambridge University Press

For the first meeting on Sorel, let's try to get through the first four chapters from Reflections on Violence: "Class War and Violence," "Violence and the Decadence of the Middle Class," "Prejudices Against Violence," and "The Proletarian Strike."


Barnes and Nobles has the ebook for free, and Amazon has it for 99 cents.
