The objective is analyzing the publication of printed materials of anarchist groups in the initial period of the worker's movement in Buenos Aires. During the creation of the first worker's organizations in the city, the publishing activity had a major role for these groups, with the functions of propaganda and organization. We will study the editing field through a research on the subjects and the authors that were published, and also on the adopted media and on the people who were on the head of the editing work, trying to find out which were the selling and distribution networks. We believe that theses matters can help us to understand the strategies chosen by these groups for promoting their ideas and the importance of the editing activity to get activists together. It is also our interest identifying the worker's spaces, as libraries, ateneos, schools and unions. Thus, we can comprehend the development process of anarchism in the worker's movement in Buenos Aires by the relations between politics and publishing.
