From Bakunin to Lacan: Anti-Authoritarianism and the Dislocation of Power

by: Saul Newman

Publisher: Lexington Books (2001)


Staff Pick by comrade: Josh

In this incredible book, Newman uses poststructuralist thought to move past Marxism and push Anarchism to a deeper, more thorough critique of power. He shows how it is important to shirk the essentialist logic of classical Anarchism and redefine our limits and possibilities. A well written and readable book of great importance to modern Anarchist theory
