A memoir of Robert Capa is not only important for its description of historic events, but also amazingly funny. Robert Capa started as a war photojournalist in the Spanish Civil War and continued through WW II. He died in 1954 during the Indochina War when he stepped on a landmine. Apart from being a war photojournalist he also took photos of regular life of the "Generation X" - people who reached adulthood shortly after WW II.

This book is a fundamental work of Kropotkin, one of the founding fathers of anarchism as it is understood nowadays by the majority of activists. It shows that naarchism does not equal chaos, but is a comfortable way for a society to exist.
