Post-Anarchism

A Reader

Edited by Sureyyya Evren and Duane Rouselle  

Paperback $34.95

Post-anarchism has been of considerable importance in the discussions of radical intellectuals across the globe in the last decade. In its most popular form, it demonstrates a desire to blend the most promising aspects of traditional anarchist theory with developments in post-structuralist and post-modernist thought. Post-Anarchism: A Reader includes the most comprehensive collection of essays about this emergent body of thought, making it an essential and accessible resource for academics, intellectuals, activists and anarchists interested in radical philosophy.

Many of the chapters have been formative to the development of a distinctly “post-anarchist” approach to politics, aesthetics and philosophy. Others respond to the so-called “post-anarchist turn” with caution and scepticism. The book also includes original contributions from several of today’s “post-anarchists,” inviting further debate and new ways of conceiving post-anarchism across a number of disciplines.
