    One thought on “Anarchism: A Beginner's Guide




    1. I started this book knowing that anarchist where anti government and not much And I finished the book knowing that anarchist where anti government and not much .Whilst I appreciate that the anarchist movement is by its very nature fragmentary and non cohesive, with limited areas of agreement, I do not feel that this book has provided much elucidation of the conflicts It feels like it should have either been a fraction of the length, or several times as long and allowed the various personalities [...]


    2. A very informative, in depth analysis of the tenets of anarchism including studies of various divergent factions within the movement and what key players had to say.This is very much geared towards politics students and those in politics as a career, rather than someone with an interest in the movement or looking for words to galvanise themselves around and be inspired to organise by.If you are looking for inspirational, incisive things to read by anarchist writers, I strongly recommend you go [...]


    3. Got a better idea of what anarchism is about from reading this, and its various flavours Sometimes reads a bit like an undergrad dissertation where Kinna has written an interesting idea that doesn t really fit in the overall thread, but leaves it in anyway.This is often to do with something a particular thinker or organisation has said or done okay they did that, but what s it to do with the price of fish


    4. The tile should be Beginner s guide to the history of anarchism An important distinction I think I wanted to learn something about anarchism but I learned from reading for 10 minutes I assume this was some student s end term paper The sudden and jarring insert in the middle discussing some obscure film was just bizarre and it s the only thing that kept me scratching my head.


    5. It s not actually a beginner s guide to anarchism, it was too repetititve and annoying in some parts The analysis was much deeper than what a supposed beginner needs to know about the subject of anarchism 2 stars for the hard work and research that the author invested in it.


    6. Brilliant short book that sums up the general ideas of anarchism A very easy read, simplifying complex ideas whilst retaining their substance Provides plenty of details on other thinkers so it is a good starter for someone interested in anarchism but not quite sure where to begin


    7. Chapter 2, Anarchist Rejections of the State, is the best chapter in the book The rest of the book feels muddled, and relies too heavily on certain trends or thinkers.


    8. Well, I was expecting a down to earth book on Anarchism than that This book just read too abstract and pretentiously scientific for my taste.


    9. A little too academic for my tastes, but definitely introduces a broad range of ideas and provides plenty of resources for learning .
