Anarchism and Education offers a philosophical account of the neglected tradition of anarchist thought on education. Although few anarchist thinkers wrote systematically on education, this analysis is based largely on a reconstruction of the educational thought of anarchist thinkers gleaned from their various ethical, philosophical and popular writings. Primarily drawing on the work of the nineteenth century anarchist theorists such as Bakunin, Kropotkin and Proudhon, the book also covers twentieth century anarchist thinkers such as Noam Chomsky, Paul Goodman, Daniel Guerin and Colin Ward.
Louise Michel was the incendiary leader of the 1871 Paris Commune, when the city's population rose up to establish a short-lived workers' government. An anarchist and an irrepressible rebel, "The Red Virgin" spent much of her life on the run, in jail, or in danger of being locked away in mental asylums. This is Michel's defiant story, with commentaries by Emma Goldman, Bertolt Brecht, Sheila Rowbotham, Howard Zinn, Victor Hugo, and Karl Marx.
