"The time for Bakunin--the real one, not the caricature--has come again, and Mark Leier has given us just the history that we need. Wonderfully written, scholarly but also packed with fascinating tales and fresh revelations, Bakunin: The Creative Passion is passion with purpose."
-- Paul Buhle, co-editor, Encyclopedia of the American Left and Wobblies! a Graphic History
“Mark Leier mounts a passionate defense of Bakunin and of his creed of anarchism. Even if you do not believe that anarchists, let alone Marxists, have the right answers, Leier’s radical tract will force you to face the question posed by the millions of the world’s poor who deserve a say in their fate, as they wait for the promised radiant future." – Andrew Mango, author of ATATURK: The Biography of the Founder of Modern Turkey
