3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By John Desmond on 29 Jan. 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This anthology, edited by Iain McKay, is an incalculable addition to the anarchist literature, and will be useful for both lay and scholarly readers. In the wide-ranging and illuminating Introduction, he undertakes the irksome but necessary task of exposing the appropriation of the term `libertarian' by the free-market capitalist right, and in the following `Further Notes' he systematically debunks the continuous misrepresentation and wilful ignorance of Proudhon by his rival Karl Marx.
The body of the anthology, which amounts to seven hundred pages, comprises a collection of Proudhon's writings, including the seminal `What is Property?' The Editor both revised and edited all the translations of Proudhon, and contributed annotations to them throughout. New translations and supplementary material on Proudhon are planned.
The Editor's aim for the anthology is 'to show why Proudhon influenced so many radicals and revolutionaries, and why Proudhon should be read today.' An engaged readership would be a fitting reward for his dedication in bringing it to publication.

It's Proudhon, what else can one say? 26 Aug. 2011
By Miguel C. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was a great pleasure to read McKay's translation of Proudhon's famous/devastating treatise on Property, "What Is Property?". He includes large segments that Benjamin Tucker omitted from his own translation for whatever reason (I'd rather not speculate) and which, in many areas, give Proudhon a very different tone. This alone is worth the price, but he also includes Proudhon's economic critique of capitalism (in which you'll find many ideas that were later developed by Marx), "System of Economic Contradictions", along with other works, letters and some useful commentary. All in all, fantastic anthology.
