Anarchism Pamphlets in the Labadie Collection

Description

The pamphlets digitized here comprise a very small part of a much larger collection of pamphlets owned by the University of Michigan Labadie Collection on the topic of anarchism. Due to copyright restrictions, some titles are limited to University of Michigan users only.

Currently, only texts which are in the public domain are available online. These are pamphlets published in the U.S. before 1923 or those which have been explicitly released by the copyright holder. Items with undetermined rights are assumed to be in-copyright, and are listed, but not viewable online. Please contact labadie-collection@umich.edu for further assistance.
