Anarchism by Ruth Kinna

Book Description

The rise of the worldwide anti-globalization movement has led to a renewed interest in anarchism, but many are still unsure of what it is that anarchists stand for. In this clear and penetrating study, Ruth Kinna goes right to the heart of the ideology, explaining the influences that have shaped anarchism, and the tactics and strategies that anarchists have used to bring about their goals. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the classic accounts of Kropotkin and Bakunin to the work of modern anarchist thinkers, this insightful work will provide the perfect introduction to anarchism, the anti-globalization movement and the issue of whether anarchist ideals can ever be consistent with justifying violence for political ends.

Books By Author Ruth Kinna

Kropotkin by Ruth Kinna Kropotkin, Hardback (December 2015)

Ruth Kinna reassesses Kropotkin's political thought and suggests that the 'classical' tradition which has provided a lens for the discussion of his work has had a distorting effect on the interpretation of his ideas. Kinna corrects some popular myths about Kropotkin's thought and sheds new light on the nature of anarchist ideology.

Anarchism and Utopianism by Ruth Kinna Anarchism and Utopianism, Paperback (November 2014)

The first book-length treatment of the relationship between anarchism and utopianism reveals the anarchistic influences active in the history of utopian thought. It provides fresh perspectives on academic and activist debates about ecology, alternatives to capitalism, revolutionary theory and practice, and the politics of art, gender and sexuality.

Bloomsbury Companion to Anarchism by Ruth Kinna Bloomsbury Companion to Anarchism, Paperback (November 2014)

This reference work focuses on contemporary anarchism and covers a broad range of themes using a multidisciplinary approach.

Libertarian Socialism by Ruth Kinna Libertarian Socialism, Hardback (November 2012)

The history of the left is usually told as one of factionalism and division. This collection of essays casts new light to show how the boundaries between Marxism and anarchism have been more porous and fruitful than is conventionally recognised. The volume includes ground-breaking pieces on the history of socialism in the twentieth-century.
