“Can anarchists also lay claim to Wilde? The Soul of Man Under Socialism, the essay he published in 1891, usually puts him in the anarchist frame, typically as a kind of individualist.” Oscar Wilde the anarchist!? a text by Ruth Kinna and cover art is by Clifford Harper. 
Released June 2019. Printed in Croatia.ISBN 2631349902


These short introductions delve into the anarchist canon to recover some of the distinctive ideas that historical anarchists advanced to address problems relevant to their circumstances. Although these contexts were special, many of the issues the anarchists wrestled with still plague our lives. Anarchists developed a body of writing about power, domination, injustice and exploitation, education, prisons and a lot more besides. Honing in on different facets of the anarchist canon is not just an interesting archaeological exercise. The persistence, development and adaptation of anarchist traditions depends on our surveying the historical landscape of ideas and drawing on the resources it contains. The theoretical toolbox that this small assortment of anarchists helped to construct is there to use, amend and adapt.
