The Anarchist Papers

The Anarchist Papers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brings together some of the best writings of contemporary anarchists in one volume.

Anarchism, with its emphasis on ethics, has always stressed the need for a counterculture against the prevailing one. Concern with the centralization of power, both political and economic, with the role of the state, the loss of community in urban centers, and our domination of nature, makes this controversial philosophy as relevant today as when it first appeared. Working for the gradual establishment of self-rule, modern anarchists are increasingly recognized as our best social critics.

Essays contained within this volume of The Anarchist Papers include an assessment of Germany's Green Party and a study of the anarchist thought of Paul Goodman by George Woodcock. Linguist Noam Chomsky examines the many ways in which the political powers rewrite history to suit their needs. Murray Bookchin theorizes on libertarian municipalism, and J. Frank Harrison discusses the politics of conformity and persuasion that shape the world of the average person. Both Alice Wexler and Marsha Hewitt present essays on Emma Goldman that show the links between her anarchism and her feminism.

Review:

"Wexler's article offers an acute portrait, drawing Goldman warts and all, showing her contradictions and inconsistences, as well as her strengths and passions." Choice

Review:

"To find Noam Chomsky, Murray Bookchin, George Woodcock, and Cornelius Castoriadis between the same covers is a rare treat indeed." Canadian Book Review Annual
