In pursuing such a course, revolutionary syndicalism would find itself in league with political nationalists.
Please note that when I use the term 'syndicalism', here I am using it in the English sense of specifically meaning revolutionary syndicalism and/ or anarcho-syndicalism, not in the Romance language sense of meaning unions in general.
When the Comintern's '21 Conditions' were endorsed by the KPD at the end of 1920, any kind of revolutionary syndicalism or localism was finished within the KPD.
A subsequent amnesty enabled many of them to return home to France, taking with them new ideas learned from their English comrades about working within the trade unions--ideas that would have a formative influence on the development of revolutionary syndicalism. Indeed, Constance Bantman's research undermines the traditional opposition in trade union history between British reformism and French revolutionism.
My hypothesis is that Reclus's ideas did indeed have both a direct and indirect influence on the thinking that went into the Annales, mainly as a result of the admiration that Febvre felt for Reclus as both a geographer and an anarchist, which in turn was probably the result of Febvre's little-known but well-documented sympathies for Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, revolutionary syndicalism, and left-libertarian thinking.
Even outside of this "glorious period," anarchism and its union offshoots, anarcho- and revolutionary syndicalism, was (and is) an important current.
Following the collapse of the OBU, the IWW would spend the next decade arguing the same question with the ascendant CPC, which, unlike the OBU, was able to offer a coherent theory and praxis to rival the IWW's brand of pragmatic, revolutionary syndicalism.

Approaching the topic chronologically and thematically, he explains how the metal workers shifted from revolutionary syndicalism to the Communist Party following World War I and how the silk workers shifted from reformist socialism also to the communists later in the 1930s in terms of changing industrial social relations and their interactions with political opportunity structures, the elements of which include the relative openness or closure of the institutionalized political system, the stability or instability of the broad set of elite alignments of the polity, the presence or absence of elite allies, the state's capacity and propensity for repression, the availability of political programs, and historical traditions and myths.
He would memorialize it in the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man." Italian "Red Guards" fused the usual melange of radical student concerns with support for Fiat workers, Turin being a centre of agitation that congealed revolutionary syndicalism, anti-imperialism and a particularly vigourous fight to democratize the country's hierarchical and understaffed universities.
By the end of the First World War, propaganda by the deed had been largely abandoned in favour of revolutionary syndicalism and the spread of new political organizations amongst the working classes.
Gregor draws extensively on Italian intellectuals (Enrico Corradini, Alfredo Rocco, Roberto Michels, Sergio Panunzio, Giovanni Gentile, Giuseppe Bottai) who alchemized separate strands of nationalism, revolutionary syndicalism, idealism, and corporatism into a purportedly coherent, unitary developmentalist ideology that Gregor calls "paradigmatic fascism." As in The Faces of Janus, Gregor then applies a model of paradigmatic fascism to postsoviet Russia, where the emphasis on collective humiliation, resentment toward the West, and restoring the nation to the rank of a major power is especially striking.
