"Talking Anarchy is perhaps the closest thing to be found to a biography of Colin Ward... a welcome insight into the life of one of the great anarchist propagandists." - Freedom

Of all political views anarchism is the most ill-represented. For more than 30 years, in over 30 books, Colin Ward has been patiently explaining anarchist solutions to everything from vandalism to what we do after the motor age - as well as celebrating unofficial uses of the landscape, from holiday camps to squatter communities. In this book-length interview, Colin Ward discusses the ups and downs of the anarchist movement during the last century, including the many famous characters who were anarchists, or associated with the movement, including Herbert Read, Alex Comfort, Marie Louise Berneri, Paul Goodman, Noam Chomsky & George Orwell. With his typical patience, and humor, he ruminates on where we've been, and where we might ought to be going, as well as his influences, life and thoughts...A wonderfully, truly enjoyable, and enlightening read.
