I remember reading this book are quite a few years ago, but finding it not that helpful, and quite confused in places. I know that other people do rate it, however. Cheers for sharing this. I just re-read this the other day. I recommend giving it a look. Meltzer makes a good argument for circumscribing anarchism. I agree, Steven. It's nothing amazing, but given its short length and accessible style, it might prove useful as an introduction to some people. I can confirm that its a good read. :) Lumpen Meltzer makes a good argument for circumscribing anarchism.
