              Anarchism, Anarchist Communism, and The State: Three Essays
               

              Anarchism, Anarchist Communism, and The State: Three Essays (PDF ebook)

              By Kropotkin, Peter; Morris, Brian; McKay, Iain

              Amid the clashes, complexities, and political personalities of world politics in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Peter Kropotkin stands out. Born a prince in Tsarist Russia, sent to Siberia to learn his militaristic, aristocratic trade, he instead renounced his... titles and took up the "beautiful idea" of anarchism. Across a continent he would become known as a passionate advocate of a world without borders, without kings and bosses. From a Russian cell to France, to London and Brighton, he used his extraordinary mind to dissect the birth of State power and then present a different vision, one in which the human impulse to liberty can be found throughout history, undying even in times of defeat. In the three essays presented here, Kropotkin attempted to distill his many insights into brief but brilliant essays on the state, anarchism, and the ideology for which he became a founding name-anarchist communism. With a detailed and rich introduction from Brian Morris, and accompanied by bibliographic notes from Iain McKay, this collection contextualises and contemporises three of Kropotkin's most influential essays.

              Anthropology, Ecology, and Anarchism: A Brian Morris Reader
               

              Anthropology, Ecology, and Anarchism: A Brian Morris Reader (EPUB ebook)

              By Morris, Brian; Introduction by Marshall, Peter

              Over the course of a long career, Brian Morris has created an impressive body of engaging and insightful writings-from social anthropology and ethnography to politics, history, and philosophy-that is accessible to the layperson without sacrificing analytical rigor. But until now,... the essays collected here, originally published in obscure journals and political magazines, have been largely unavailable to the broad readership to which they are so naturally suited. The opposite of arcane, specialized writing, Morris's work takes an interdisciplinary approach that offers connections between various scholarly interests and anarchist politics and thought. There is a long history of anarchist writers drawing upon works in a range of fields, and Morris's essays both explore past connections and suggest ways that broad currents of anarchist thought will have new and ever-emerging relevance for anthropology and many other ways of understanding social relationships.
