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.
New Perspectives on Anarchism, Labour and Syndicalism: The Individual, the National and the Transnational - ed. David Berry and Constance Bantman
This collection presents new research on the history of anarchist movements and their relation to organised labour, notably revolutionary syndicalism. Bringing together specialists in their field, it ranges across Europe and from the late nineteenth century to the beginnings of the Cold War.
