 About the Book 

Direct Action is the classic statement of revolutionary syndicalism. Against the slavery that is capitalism, Pouget proposes not faith in the go-betweens of parliament (or union leaderships!) but workersa own action. Action to win small victories, strengthening and inspiring the working class for the big one: the destruction of capitalism and rebuilding society from the bottom up.aThis drive to expropriation has begun- at every step it is pursued by day to day struggles against the current master of production, the capitalist- his privileges are undermined and eaten away, the legitimacy of his leadership and mastery functions is denied, and the charge that he levies upon everyoneas output on the pretext of recompense for capital investment, is considered theft. So, little by little, he is being bundled out of the workshopauntil such time as he can be driven out entirely and forever.a
