This paper traces the history of anarcho-syndicalism from the Wilhelmine to the Weimar period. Originating in the imperial anarchist movement, German anarcho-syndicalists maintained a resolute opposition to the government's wartime policies and the close connection between labor unions and the Social Democratic Party in the post-war republic. This paper reconstructs the philosophical origins of the anarcho-syndicalist movements and its social history as part of the radical left opposition to parliamentary social democracy.
