DescriptionContentsAuthors

Anarchism has never enjoyed the authority of the major political ideologies but in this study, Giorel Curran argues that it has had considerable influence in shaping the modern political landscape and that the politics of globalization has propelled an invigorated anarchism into the heart of 21st century dissent. The anti-globalization and environmental movements, such as Earth First!, Reclaim the Streets and the World Social Forum, have unleashed a reconfigured anarchism that has attracted a significant following. This post-ideological, green and deeply democratic version of anarchy has emerged as a viable force in the oppositional politics of the 21st century.
