Abstract or Description

This a a broad ranging introduction to 21st century anarchism which includes a wide array of theoretical approaches as well as a variety of empirical and geographical perspectives. The book demonstrates how this vibrant and often controversial ideology has influenced the humanities and social sciences including anthropology, art, feminism, geography, international relations, philosophy, political science, postcolonialism and sociology. Drawing on a long historical narrative that encompasses the 'waves' of anarchist movements from the post-war wave of student, counter-cultural and workers' control anarchism of the 1960s and 1970s to the DIY politics and Temporary Autonomous Zoness of the 1990s right up to the Occupy! movement, this is the perfect introduction to anarchist theory.
