The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) is interested in receiving high quality comparative book
review essays for upcoming issues of its biannual journal, Perspectives on Anarchist Theory.
Perspectives reviews must be focused on a common single issue, topic, or theme. Each review must
treat at least two books and one must have been published in the previous two years. In some
cases, reviews of works in other media (such as a film) will be accepted. Reviews of two books
should be between 2,500 to 3,000 words and reviews of three should be 3,500 to 4,000 words.

The books selected for review may be from any discipline, provided that they deal with subjects
related to anarchism. Review essays should examine the failings and virtues of books for a
contemporary anarchist theory and politics. Anarchism is understood here as a doctrine seeking
the abolition of capitalism, the nation-state, and hierarchy generally, and the creation of a
society based on mutual aid, direct democracy, autonomy and freedom. We are also interested in
reviews of cross-disciplinary or theoretical works that may be of interest to anarchists activists
and scholars.

Activists, organizers and scholars interested in writing a review essay should contact the
journal’s book review editor and provide a list of the books you plan to review, as well as a
brief statement explaining the relevance of the proposed essay in light of the criteria outlined
above. Perspectives book reviews should eschew academic and other highly technical jargon, and
should be accessible and enjoyable to a broad range of readers. Review writers should be prepared
to explain the concepts under discussion clearly and succinctly so that all of their readers are
able to engage them in turn.

Authors and publishers interested in having their books listed and possibly reviewed in
Perspectives on Anarchist Theory are encouraged to send copies to the book review editor.
