This book was written in 1977 in the momentum of the
revolutionary struggles taking place in Italy at the time, and that
should be borne in mind when reading it today. … This book has become
topical again, but in a different way. Not as a critique of a heavy
monopolising structure that no longer exists, but because it can point
out the potent capabilities of the individual on his or her road, with
joy, to the destruction of all that which oppresses and regulates them.
