David Watson presents a thoughtful and cogent account of the life and legacy of the Spanish exile Federico Arcos whose career in many ways crossed paths with all the themes related to the evolution of anarcho-syndicalism covered in this book. Arcos grew up in Barcelona and fought in the Spanish Civil War. He immigrated to Canada in 1952 and later participated in anarchist groups in Detroit. He devoted much of his life in the United States to collecting anarchist materials, and his efforts at collecting were vital to maintaining a record of what would otherwise be permanently lost. The bulk of his archives are located at the National Library of Catalonia (Biblioteca de Catalunya).
