Anarcho-syndicalism is a program of political organization founded on the principles of workers' self-management, direct democracy, and mutual aid. As anarchists, anarcho-syndicalists pursue the abolition of all systems of domination and exploitation - be they economic as with capitalism; political as with the state, bureaucracies, and prisons; or social as with misogyny, racism, and social oppressions; and as syndicalists, anarcho-syndicalists seek to create a society managed collectively and democratically by everyone who inhabits it. Anarcho-syndicalists believe there should be no separation between those who inhabit society and those who govern society - we assert that all those who inhabit society should govern society, cooperatively.

Revolutionary Syndicalist Internationalism, 1913-1923: The Origins of the International Workers’ Association
This is a 250-page study (large enough to occupy a formidably-sized book) tracing the history and content of syndicalist organization in Europe from the dawn of hostilities in World War I to the founding of the International Workers’ Association. Among its many focuses are the influence of French syndicalism and the relationship between anarchosyndicalist unions and the Soviet Union’s Red International of Labor Unions (RILU, or the “Profintern”).
This study was prepared in 1979 by Wayne Thorpe as a requisite for earning his doctorate in Philosophy from the University of British Columbia
