This book is stellar. My only reservation was the lack of discussion concerning council commies and other leftist Marxists (which in my eyes are pretty much anarchistic) while placing a little too much emphasis on insurrectionary politics.

Actually, it has its problems -- as I discuss in my recent review

basically, it is useful and in some ways ground-breaking but do take it with a pinch of salt.
