Collecting top peer-reviewed anarchist writings from more than three decadesSince 1980, Social Anarchism: A Journal of Theory and Practice has developed into a premier anarchist periodical, a feat that is honored in this anthology that showcases the journal's finest pieces. Dividing its focus equally between theoretical works and descriptions of contemporary practice, the anthology boasts such notable contributors as Noam Chomsky, Colin Ward, Kingsley Widmer, Murray Bookchin, and Richard Kostelanetz, and all contributions have been reviewed by an international board of editors—avoiding the sectarian diatribes that characterize so much of political writing. The book is divided into five major sections that cover theory, practice, education, historical figures, and contemporary voices, and each article includes a summary abstract written by the editors. This fascinating and relevant collection presents a unique and rewarding perspective on the fresh and vital contributions of anarchism to the modern world.
