Michael Bakunin


This collection of extracts from the works of Michael Bakunin has been translated and edited, with a biographical essay, by K. J. Kenafick. The contents are taken largely from those writings of Bakunin touching on his controversy with Marx and therefore belong to the years 1870-72 but the passages dealing with the nature and characteristics of the State in general are mostly taken from Federalism, Socialism and Anti-Theologianism, written in 1867, and based as the title indicates on the close connection, in Bakunin’s view between the State and religion.

In the ninety or so years since these passages were written, the worship of the State has become a religion over a very large part of the globe, and we have seen in practice the fulfilment of Bakunin’s gloomy forebodings on the destination of Marxist socialism. History itself has given point and piquancy to his neglected but prophetic polemics.
