More details


£7.10


In this issue of Anarchist Studies, Brian Morris’s guest editorial is a tribute to the life and works of Rudolf Rocker, suggesting his underestimated achievements as an anarchist thinker with ongoing contemporary relevance. Christos Memos further addresses Rocker’s influence, among many others’, in his article on Council Communism and the Russian Revolution. He offers a critical re-evaluation of both anarchist and councilist appraisals of the Russian Revolution, in order to reveal possibilities for contemporary anti-capitalist activism throughout the world. Martin Miller also examines the Bolshevik government, specifically to suggest the role of anarchism within it. This role has obvious points of conflict with anarchist anti-authoritarianism, and Miller explores why and how it came about.

Also in this issue, Brian Martin probes how reform can contribute to radical change, by examining case studies in a variety of different fields, and Peter Ryley’s article, a piece of intellectual history, examines late Victorian Britain and argues for the recognition of individualist anarchism as an important part of its radical milieu. There are reviews of Chris Wilbert and Damien F. White’s Autonomy, Solidarity, Possibility: The Colin Ward Reader and Carissa Honeywell’s A British Anarchist Tradition, among many others.
