Bloomsbury companion to anarchism

Bloomsbury companion to anarchism

A comprehensive reference work to support research in anarchism. The book considers the different approaches to anarchism and explains the development of anarchist studies from the early 20th century to the present. It is unique in that it highlights the relationship between theory and practice, pays special attention to methodology, presents non-English works, key terms and concepts, and discusses new directions for the field. Focusing on the contemporary movement, the work outlines significant shifts in the study of anarchist ideas and explores recent debates.

Check-out the Resources (p.353). A very useful/impressive list.

Ah, how Albert Meltzer would have frothed at the mouth about a lot of stuff in the book. And you know, he would have been right.
