A magisterial study of one of the most controversial political movements that shows how anarchism works.
Ruth Kinna is a professor of political theory at Loughborough University, working in the Department of Politics, History and International Relations where she specialises in political philosophy. She is the author of William Morris- The Art of Socialism and co-editor of the journal Anarchist Studies.
Ruth Kinna's book will be the standard text on anarchism for
the twenty-first century. Written with brio, quiet insight and
clarity and taking us from the nineteenth century anarchist
Proudhon to Occupy and Rojava, this offering will appeal to the
novice student, the activist and the grizzled professor. Quite a
feat -- Carl Levy
The Government of No One will undoubtedly become obligatory reading for those who wish to learn about anarchism * Times Higher Education *
A sympathetic, impressively well-informed history of the movement ... packed with information about this rich history -- Terry Eagleton * Guardian *
