The rise of devils
The rise of devils chronicles the emergence of terrorism in the late nineteenth century. This era simmered with political rage and social inequalities, which drove nationalists, nihilists, anarchists and republicans to extreme measures, while an outrage-hungry press peddled hysteria, conspiracy theories and, sometimes, fake news in response.
This book combines Karl Marx's critique of capitalism with G. D. H. Cole's democratic pluralism. The result is a regenerated social anarchism, 'associational anarchism'. Its democratisation of production and consumption form the organisational contours of a new conception of liberty, 'freedom as Marxian-autonomy'.
Love and revolution
Love and Revolutionbrings classical and contemporary anarchist thought into a mutually beneficial dialogue with a global cross-section of ecological, anti-capitalist, feminist and anti-racist activists - discussing real-life examples of the loving-caring relations that underpin many contemporary struggles.
