5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Wayne Wells, Esquire, reviews "Selected Writings" 11 Jan 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
In just 264 pages this book effectively conveys the essence of the philosophy of the founder of modern anarchism. Writing in the mid-nineteenth century, Proudhon's views still have relevance today.
His mutualism or anarcho-syndicalist style of anarchism attempts to fit into the realities of the industrial age rather than submerge itself in dreams of the pastoral agrarian past.
During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) the followers of Proudhon's style of anarcho-syndicalism were a major political party which controlled the city goverment of Barcelona and the Catelonian province in Spain. From this base they fought against Franco's fascists on the side of the Spanish Republic.

5.0 out of 5 stars remarkable in its depth 3 May 2000
By George Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
"Selected writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon" is an accessible and informative collection of the revolutionary thought of one of contemporary history's more visionary yet obscure philosophers. Envisioning a society based on reciprocity, collaboration and spontaneous free association, Proudhon based this model of society on the ethical concept of self-respect - self-respect begets respect for onefs neighbour. Remarkable in its depth of understanding, "Selected writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon" is a must read for anyone interested in anarchist thought and its implications in the development of a truly democratic society.
