Bandits By Eric J. HobsbaBandits is a study of the social bandit or bandit rebel robbers and outlaws who are not regarded by public opinion as simple criminals but rather as champions of social justice as avengers or as primitive resistance fighters Wheth. The only two chapters apart from the appendices and updated postscript that were most relevant and interesting were the ones regarding the role the Russian Anarchist Bandits played during the early 20thC but Hobsbawm really does not like them being Anarchists and so on up until the Civil War after the 1917 Revolution oddly Nestor Makhno is not mentioned in this short book and the chapter on Expropriation with an excellent short biography of an Anarchist called Francesc Sabaté Llopart a refugee from the Spanish Civil War who later performed guerilla operations against Franco working across the Pyrenees who I suppose epitomised the 'Social Bandit' that this book heavily deals with and theorises upon According to Bakunin the famous Anarchist theoretician a Bandit is the genuine and sole revolutionary a revolutionary without fine phrases without learned rhetoric irreconcilable indefatigable and indomitable a popular and social revolutionary non political and independent of any estate This surmises the essence of what the book is about but be prepared for no serious study of any particular famous Bandit or Outlaws it is theoretical Marxist social study about the relationship between popular heroes and their class basis And yes Pancho Villa is mentioned who still holds an almost romantic appeal in South America to this day along with Zapata who had of serious agrarian programme compared the military one of Pancho Villa A bit dry and I was disappointed for no serious characterorganisational study instead focusing and briefly mentioning some incredibly obscure bandits across the world from South America right over to Indonesia I give it 35 rounded down to a 3 star book because I found it severely lacking and not what I was looking for Interesting nonetheless
