This is the first book in a series co-produced by AK Press and the Institute for Anarchist Studies, and illustrated and designed by Justseeds. From the AK Press website:
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 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
Each chapter is illustrated with an image by Alec Icky Dunn, and the entire project is designed by Josh MacPhee.
