Instead of focusing exclusively on what Marx and Bakunin said, many other contributions to this debate are examined, making this the first reconstruction of a dispute that gripped the entire organization. The book sets new standards when it comes to source material, taking into account documents from numerous archives and libraries that have previously gone unnoticed or were completely unknown.
It explores the key anarchist concepts of society and the state, freedom and equality, authority and power, and investigates the successes and failures of the anarchist movements throughout the world. While remaining sympathetic to anarchism, it presents a balanced and critical account. No other book on anarchism covers so much so incisively. Demanding the Impossible is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand what anarchists stand for and what they have achieved.
It will also appeal to those who want to discover how anarchism offers an inspiring and original body of ideas and practices. In Anarchist Seeds beneath the Snow, David Goodway seeks to recover and revitalize that indigenous anarchist tradition. This book succeeds as simultaneously a cultural history of left-libertarian thought in Britain and a demonstration of the applicability of that history to current politics.
Many are critical about working within a state-run education system that is embedded in hierarchical, standardized, and authoritarian structures. Of course, if anarchists agree that there are no blueprints for education, the question remains, in what dynamic and creative ways can we construct non-hierarchical, anti-authoritarian, mutual, and voluntary educational spaces?
Major themes in the volume include: learning from historical anarchist experiments in education, ways that contemporary anarchists create dynamic and situated learning spaces, and finally, critically reflecting on theoretical frameworks and educational practices.
Anarchism and Education offers a philosophical account of the neglected tradition of anarchist thought on education. Although few anarchist thinkers wrote systematically on education, this analysis is based largely on a reconstruction of the educational thought of anarchist thinkers gleaned from their various ethical, philosophical, and popular writings.
Primarily drawing on the work of 19th-century anarchist theorists such as Bakunin, Kropotkin, and Proudhon, the book also covers 20th-century anarchist thinkers such as Noam Chomsky, Paul Goodman, Daniel Guerin, and Colin Ward. For more than thirty years, in over thirty books, Colin Ward patiently explained anarchist solutions to everything from vandalism to climate change—and celebrated unofficial uses of the landscape as commons, from holiday camps to squatter communities.
Ward was an anarchist journalist and editor for almost sixty years, most famously editing the journal Anarchy. It shows him to be an extraordinary figure for his age. Not only an anarchist but also a radical feminist, anti-racist, ecologist, animal rights advocate, cultural radical, nudist, and vegetarian. The work analyzes Reclus's greatest achievement, a sweeping historical and theoretical synthesis recounting the story of the earth and humanity as an epochal struggle between freedom and domination. It presents his groundbreaking critique of all forms of domination: not only capitalism, the state, and authoritarian religion, but also patriarchy, racism, technological domination, and the domination of nature.
According to the author, the fact that so many chapters of the anarchy of everyday life in the abundant history of anarchism have been forgotten is the best proof of the myopia of the misconception of its essence, which is why we are still searching for anarchism in places where the chances of actually finding it are the smallest. Floodgates forces us to take a hard look at moral and political problems which other more sophisticated doctrines evade. The liberal would ease the pressure by diverting some of the water; the conservative would shore up the dikes; the totalitarian would construct a stronger dam.
