(p.1) Introduction
The Knights Errant of Anarchy

Pietro Di Paola

Liverpool University Press

This book is about anarchists from Italy who formed political organisations and carried out their political activities in exile in London — where they created their own distinctive diasporas — from the second half of the nineteenth century to the outbreak of World War I. In order to understand the nature of the transnational anarchist diaspora and its relevance in the history of the anarchist movement, the book examines the political, social and cultural aspects of the community of Italian anarchists who went to London as political refugees. It looks at the everyday life of militants as well as the processes and associations through which they established an international revolutionary network, perceived by governments and police forces as an extremely dangerous threat. By exploring practical and ideological aspects of the Italian anarchists, including the development of their ideological thought, in London, this book contributes to the historiography of diasporic anarchism.
