Agustín Guillamón s latest work, Ready for Revolution, is one of the most illuminating and stimulating books on the CNT to appear since José Peirats's The CNT in the Spanish Revolution. The structure and role of the union's defense and action groups is of crucial importance not only in understanding the anarchist core of the CNT unions during that pivotal period in Spain's history, but it provides today's industrial, commercial, environmental, and social activists with useful organizational insights - a must have. --Stuart Christie, author of 'We the Anarchists: A Study of the Iberian Anarchist Federation (FAI), 1927 1937'
