Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction

Anarchism: A Very Short Introduction

Colin Ward

What do anarchists wish? it kind of feels more straightforward to categorise them by way of what they do not wish, specifically, the companies of the kingdom, and to spot them with rioting and protest instead of with any coherent ideology. yet with demonstrations like these opposed to the realm financial institution and the overseas financial Fund being blamed on anarchists, it's transparent that an evidence of what they do stand for is lengthy late.

Colin Ward presents solutions to those questions by way of contemplating anarchism from numerous views: theoretical, historic, and foreign, and by way of exploring key anarchist thinkers, from Kropotkin to Chomsky. He seems to be severely at anarchism via comparing key principles inside of it, comparable to its blanket competition to incarceration, and coverage of "no compromise" with the equipment of political decision-making. Can anarchy ever functionality successfully as a political strength? Is it extra "organized" and "reasonable" than is at the moment perceived? regardless of the politics of the reader, Ward's argument guarantees that anarchism can be far better understood after experiencing this book.
