Publisher Comments:

This book brings together the major currents of social anarchist theory in a collection of some of the most important writers from the United States, Canada, England, and Australia.

The book is organized into eight sections: "What is Anarchism?," "The State and Social Organization," "Moving Toward Anarchist Society," "Anarcha-feminism," "Work," "The Culture of Anarchy," "The Liberation of Self," and, finally, "Reinventing Anarchist Tactics."

Synopsis:

A fully revised and updated printing of this seminal work of contemporary anarchism, theory and practice, the first edition of which sold over 20,000 copies. Reinventing Anarchy, Again brings together the major currents of social anarchist theory in a collection of some of the most important writers from the United States, Canada, England and Australia. Organized in eight sections, the book opens with an exploration of the past and future possibilities of anarchism, then moves to consider the "necessity" of the state and bureaucratic organization as well as the meaning of the "anarchist contract". The third of the theoretical sections tackles the hard questions for social anarchists confronting the foundations of libertarian socialist and liberal democratic thought. In part four, the contributors traverse the defining characteristics of the various feminisms moving to a concrete statement about the nature of anarchafeminism. In the fifth section about work, the authors consider the issues of worker's self-management, resistance through the underground economy, as well as the implications of the abolition of work itself. In the final three sections, the anthology addresses the culture of anarchy, self-liberation, and the process for building an anarchist society. The book ends with a set of trenchant observations on the current scene by the editor.
