Product description

Review

"[This is] the book I always recommend when asked--as I often am--for something on the history and ideas of anarchism." --Noam Chomsky

"[This is] the book I always recommend when askedas I often amfor something on the history and ideas of anarchism." Noam Chomsky"

"Blowing away cobwebs of misunderstanding and misrepresentation, this is a stimulating portrait of a highly varied but distinctive political ideal, tradition, and practice arising from the enduring human impulse to be free." Publishers Weekly

"

"Large, labyrinthine, tentative: for me these are all adjectives of praise when applied to works of history, and [this book] meets all of them." George Woodcock, Independent"

"Attractively written and fully referenced . . . bound to be the standard history." Colin Ward, Times Educational Supplement"

"Though this highly engaging book can certainly be read from start to finish, I expect that its ultimate role in the average reader's life will be as a reference; not like an encyclopedia but rather more like a favorite author' collected works or a Bible: a massive repository of wisdom and of histories that might be otherwise lost to us." Time Out New York

"

The Times

'An exhaustive and authoritative study which is bound to become the standard account.'
