Changing anarchism

Anarchist theory and practice in a global age

Jonathan Purkis and James Bowen

Published by Manchester University Press

  • At the beginning of the twenty-first century, with popular movements challenging the logic of globalisation, Western military imperialism and the assumptions of 'democratic' governments, anarchist theory and practice has once again made its presence felt
  • Changing anarchism documents the links between these movements and contemporary anarchism and demonstrates how anarchist ideas are evolving in a global age
  • In particular, the book examines strands within anarchism concerned with technology, the environment and identity, and suggests that these are useful sociological tools for understanding the pervasive and interconnected nature of power
  • The contributors also offer practical insight into how power is being resisted in a variety of social and political contexts and how anarchist ideals are impacting on many different areas of everyday life
  • Changing anarchism will appeal to the general reader as well as to students of politics, sociology and cultural studies
