The Anarchist Turn


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

"The concept of anarchy is often presented as a recipe for pure disorder. The Anarchist Turnbrings together fresh perspectives on anarchism to argue that in fact it represents a form of collective, truly democratic social organization. [You don't say!]

The book shows how in the last decade the negative caricature of anarchy has begun to crack. Globalization and the social movements it spawned have proved what anarchists have long been advocating: an anarchical order is not just desirable, but also feasible.

The contributors, including leading anarchist and critical theorists, argue that with the failure of both free markets and state socialism the time has come for an 'anarchist turn' in political philosophy. In doing so they relate the anarchist hypothesis to a range of other disciplines such as politics, anthropology, economics, history and sociology."

Edited by Jacob Blumenfeld, Chiara Bottici and Simon Critchley. Pluto Press, 2013.
