LUIGI GALLEANI (1861-1931): ‘The most dangerous anarchist in the USA’
A public lecture by Professor Sean Sayers Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University of Kent.
Professor Sayers will explore the fascinating life of Luigi Galleani who was described in 1917 by the US Department of Justice as ‘the most dangerous anarchist in America’. Galleani (1861 – 1931) was an Italian anarchist who was active in the United States from 1901 to 1919. He is best known for his advocacy of "propaganda of the deed", the use of violence to eliminate tyrants and overthrow existing government institutions.
