About the Book
This edition is an attempt to incorporate the useful developments of anarchist philosophy in the last hundred years, and to make it relevant to the problems of the twenty-first century. Anarchism is the political philosophy of human emancipation. According to Anarchists, humans are happiest and most productive when they are free to exercise their creative powers in cooperation with one another outside of modern state and corporate institutions. Anarchism is usually considered to be a radical left-wing ideology and as much of anarchist economics and legal philosophy reflect anti-authoritarian interpretations of communism, collectivism, syndicalism or participatory economics. Anarchists propose that communities should organize themselves to address their own needs, without either state or corporate mandates. We hope this edition will go at least part of the way to providing a new theoretical and practical foundation for free market socialist economics.
