5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Anarchy?, 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anarchy in Action (Paperback)
Compelling and revealing about the degree to which anarchy is already pervasive throughout the world. Interesting journey through recent history that now seems so long ago. Makes you want to pull out old Crass albums and join Class War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Gem, 10 Mar 2011
This review is from: Awkwardness (Paperback)
A speculative purchase that I was very happy with. Simple yet profound. No need for an existing expertise but insightful even if you're already familiar with the area. Cheap and short - well worth the risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food for Thought, 13 Nov 2009
It's been a long time since a book has forced me to question my view of the world in such an immediate and urgent fashion. From page one I was confronted with evidence that my rather pedestrian ideas of what constituted chivalry were naive in the extreme. The implications for my interpretation of current affairs was even more striking.

Whilst the theories discussed in the body of the work were unfamiliar (as they are likely to be to all but the specialist), the arguments were presented in a clear and accessible manner. This was achieved without undue simplification, a feat beyond most. Unfortunately the price reflects the limited audience but should a copy be available without the need to arrange access to the GDP of a mid-sized nation I recommend investing an afternoon in beginning to understand why some of our more recent military adventures are proving troublesome.
