Review:

'As an academic dean, I am shocked and dismayed at how invisible anarchism is to university curricula. Contemporary Anarchist Studies is a book long overdue. This book shows the theoretical logic and the empirical usefulness of an anarchist view of the world.'Dr. John Alessio, St. Cloud State University

'Contemporary Anarchist Studies is an urgently needed text at this current historical juncture when powerful arguments for anarchism are needed that are capable of loosening the death grip of capitalist ideology.'Dr. Peter McLaren, University of California, Los Angeles

'Contemporary Anarchist Studies comes at precisely the right moment in history. From anarchist theory and pedagogy in the academy, to the practices of anarchists in the streets, this book collects the insights of many of the most well known names in the field, and provides both a cogent analysis of our present as well as a hopeful direction for our future.'Dr. Corey Lewis, Humboldt State University

"It is a perfect volume for a social justice reading group, any college library, and a must for any political theory course. Because of the diversity of articles, sections of the book are also useful for such fields as women’s studies, critical animal studies, environmental studies, education, philosophy, criminology, economics, anthropology, sociology, peace and conflict studies, ethnic studies, and political science."Sarat Colling, Political Media Review
