For instance, the fall of anarchist terrorism in Spain coincided with the rise of the more successful anarcho-syndicalist movement.
In the early twentieth century, anarchism became a strong force within the labor movement (particularly in Spain and Italy, and to some extent in the United States through the Industrial Workers of the World), and its proponents began to focus more on revolutionary labor organization than on political violence.
For example, an anarchist attempted to assinate Alfonso XIII of Spain in 1906, but succeeded only in killing a number of innocent bystanders.
