Reviews

'This wide variety of approaches to moral theory and ethics should suggest that contemporary anarchist philosophy is full of potential. These scholars demonstrate that anarchism is flexible enough to encompass traditions ranging from deep ecology to analytic philsosphy to postculturalism. Most encouraging to me, however, is that these academics are willing to theorize about their own social position as academics. As more anarchists enter academia, honest dialogue about what means to be an anarchist in a university becomes more important... This book ecourages anarchists to follow their tradition of direct action and direct engagement even as they continue to theorize - our future depends on our thoughts and our actions.' - Tristan K. Husby, Anarchist Developments in Cultural Studies

'The books performatively lives up to the idea of anarchism as a theory of practice and a way of practising theory as it embodies the idea of sharing knowledge, acknowledging differences and engaging in critical thought.' - Political Studies Review
