The spirit of an event consecrated in anarchist legend is captured in these documents. Eyewitness reports, accounts of participants, and archival documents are used by Dr. Edwards to illustrate the many facets of the seventy-three-day Paris Commune of 1871, the largest urban insurrection in modern history.

Each section of the book is preceded by an explanatory note, and footnotes clarify contemporary references. The introduction to the documents provides a general survey of the origins and events of the Commune
