Review:

"To entitle a book "In Defense of Anarchism simply requires "chutzpah. To do it well requires some intelligence. Professor Wolff has both. Anarchy, being generally relegated to the ideological dust-bin or drafted as fodder for editorializing blasts, has long been in need of an intelligent reassessment. Wolff's brief book attempts this by taking the reader along a political "via dolorosa which begins with his own innocent belief in 'traditional democratic doctrines.'"--Lawrence S. Stepelevich, "The New Scholasticism

From the Back Cover:

"A deep and provocative discussion of some of the most fundamental issues in political philosophy, written crisply, with candor, in a style that I find very winning. It is a most useful book, and a very good one."--Carl Cohen, author of "Communism, Fascism, and Democracy

"A provocative and engrossing introduction to current questions of political legitimacy, consent, deliberative democracy, the basis of majority rule, workers collectives, etc., that have been taken up by contemporary political theorists."--Georgia Warnke, author of "Justice and Interpretation
