The Dynamite Club: How a Bombing in Fin-de-Siècle Paris Ignited the Age of Modern Terror

Unique 12 months of e-book: 2009

The attention-grabbing tale of a long-forgotten "war on terror" that has a lot in universal with our own

On a February night in 1894, a tender radical highbrow named Émile Henry drank beers at an upscale Parisian eating place, then left at the back of a bomb as a parting present. This incident, which rocked the French capital, lies on the middle of The Dynamite membership, a enchanting account of Henry and his cohorts and the struggle they waged opposed to the bourgeoisie—setting off bombs in public areas, killing the president of France, and at last assassinating President McKinley in 1901.

Paris within the belle époque was once a spot of relaxation, attractiveness, and gear. Newly electrified, the city’s huge boulevards have been covered with posh shops and open air cafés. yet prosperity was once restricted to some. such a lot lived in dire poverty, and staff and intellectuals chanced on universal reason in a political philosophy—anarchism—that embraced the overthrow of the nation in any respect necessary.

Yet in focusing on civilians to accomplish their ends, the dynamite bombers charted a brand new path. looking martyrdom, believing fervently of their aim, and inspiring an immense executive response that in basic terms elevated their ranks, those "evildoers" grew to become, in impact, the 1st terrorists in glossy history.

Surprising and provocative, The Dynamite membership is a brilliantly researched account that illuminates a interval of dramatic social and political change—and subtly asks us to mirror upon our own.

With a brand new preface by way of the author.
