Review quote

This book collects together key readings in post-anarchist theory and highlights the complexity and diversity of this current of thought. Acknowledging the critical attention post-anarchism has received, it provides an excellent guide to the central themes of contemporary debate. A marvellous, valuable book. -- Ruth Kinna, Senior Lecturer in Politics at Loughborough University. Editor of Anarchist Studies and author of The Beginner's Guide to Anarchism (2009). I would expect readers at all academic levels, from undergraduates and/or street activists right up to the highest levels of academia, to find this work intellectually stimulating, exciting and fresh. -- Stevphen Shukaitis, University of Essexshow more
