How We Shall Bring About the Revolution, written by two of the most important French revolutionary syndicalists of the years before the First World War, was first published in France in 1909 and translated into English in 1913. It is a spirited account, in the form of a novel, of how the authors saw the processes by which they felt the revolution would come about and how the subsequent, transformed society might organise itself.

It is a revolutionary romance, presenting a dramatic scenario of class conflict: the revolutionary working class takes power by means of a general strike; power is seized from the capitalist state and a stateless syndicalist society is created. Though fictional and utopian -- in its very form there is no room for defeat -- the tactics used to achieve the revolution in the novel are precisely those that the French syndicalists were using at the time: lessons learnt from actual struggles are incorporated, and several incidents are based on real events.

Above all, it is an inspirational work, designed to raise the consciousness of workers as to their own power. It demonstrates the continuing potential of organised labour to transform society in the working-class interest.

Geoff Brown has worked as a shepherd in the Lake District for the past seven years. Previously he was a tutor for the Workers' Educational Association in Lancashire and a lecturer in the Department of Adult Education at Nottingham University. Publications include: Sabotage: a Study in Industrial Conflict (1977).
