Lively and authoritative, this study of a widely misunderstood subject skillfully navigates the rough waters of anarchistic conceptsa€”from Taoism to Situationism, ranters to punk rockers, individualists to communists, and anarcho-syndicalists to anarcha-feminists. Exploring key anarchist ideas of society and the state, freedom and equality, authority and power, the record investigates the successes and failures of anarchist movements throughout the world. Presenting a balanced and critical survey, the detailed document covers not only classic anarchist thinkersa€”such as Godwin, Proudhon, Bakunin, Kropotkin, Reclus, and Emma Goldmana€”but also other libertarian figures, such as Nietzsche, Camus, Gandhi, Foucault, and Chomsky.
