From nineteenth-century newspaper publishers to the participants in the "Battle of Seattle" and the recent Greek uprising, anarchists have been inspired by the ideal of a free society of free individuals-a world without hierarchy or domination. But what exactly would that look like, and how can we get there? /Anarchism and Its Aspirations/ provides an accessible overview of an often-misunderstood political philosophy, highlighting its principles and practices as well as its reconstructive vision of a liberatory society.

"A brilliant primer of anarchist politics."
- Matt Hern, author of Common Ground in a Liquid City

"I expect Anarchism and Its Aspirations to become the introduction to anarchism of the next decade."
- Gabriel Kuhn, editor of Gustav Landauer’s Revolution and Other Writings

"A road map to the many social and cultural movements that anarchism has traversed . . . a testimony to its continuing ability to capture the radical imagination."
- Silvia Federici, author of Caliban and the Witch

"Uncompromising, practical, and hopeful, this book is essential reading for all who are taking on climate change, war, or corporate capitalism."
- David Solnit, coauthor of The Battle of the Story of the "Battle of Seattle"
