In February 2010, the world mourned the passing of Colin Ward-scholar, social theorist, educator, publisher, and, according to Anne Power of the London School of Economics, "Britain's greatest living anarchist." Ward was always attentive to the ways society already works cooperatively, and pushed us to understand these impulses and experiments as a latent potential for anarchism. Some of what passes for common-sense approaches to schooling, architecture, or social organization are themes Ward touched on in his work and have since been embedded in our popular consciousness. Many of us have been touched by Ward's work over the years, sometimes without even realizing it.

Autonomy, Solidarity, Possibility is a collection of some of Ward's most enduring works from the fields of politics, educational theory, social theory, and beyond. A massive project, begun several years before Ward's death with his involvement, Autonomy, Solidarity, Possibility fills the need for a thorough and succinct introduction to Ward's multi-faceted body of work.

"As every pundit and politician gestures towards a more congenial, more self-orÂganising nation, and so few have the slightest notion of how to get there without grandiose top-down schemes, we need a handy volume of the Selected Colin Ward in every bookshop, or on every screen."—The Independent

Damian F. White is Assistant Professor of Sociology in the Department of History, Philosophy and Social Science at the Rhode Island School of Design.
