American Anarchism
A convincing argument that the legacy of American Anarchism, far from being an antiquated relic, remains relevant to the present.
American Anarchism by Steve J. Shone is a work of political theory and history that focuses on nineteenth century American Anarchism, together with two European anarchists who influenced some of the Americans.

The nine thinkers discussed are Alexander Berkman, Voltairine de Cleyre, Samuel Fielden, Luigi Galleani, Peter Kropotkin, Lucy Parsons, Max Stirner, William Graham Sumner, and Benjamin Tucker.

What emerges from this engagement is a lucid, compelling, and well grounded argument that ideas drawn from nineteenth century American Anarchism have enduring relevance for those seeking to solve contemporary political problems.
