The Emergence of the New Anarchism

New blog entry for WW II and post-war writings by Herbert Read, Marie Louise Berneri, Paul Goodman, David Wieck, Daniel Guérin, Alex Comfort and the Noir et Rouge group that played a part in the resurgence in anarchist ideas and action that surprised many people in the 1960s.

I've created a new page on my blog, "The Emergence of the New Anarchism," which includes writings by Herbert Read, Marie Louise Berneri, Paul Goodman, David Wieck, Daniel Guérin, Alex Comfort and the Noir et Rouge group from 1944 to 1958 that I was unable to fit into Volume Two of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas. I think all of these writers played a part in the resurgence in anarchist ideas and action that surprised many people in the 1960s. Much of what they wrote is surprisingly topical today: http://robertgraham.wordpress.com/the-emergence-of-the-...hism/.

For those of a more theoretical bent, I have recently posted part of an essay by Eduardo Colombo, "The State as Paradigm of Power," from 1984, where Colombo uses Castoriadis' post-Socialism or Barbarism theory in support of an anarchist critique of state power (too esoteric for Volume Three I'm afraid): http://robertgraham.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/eduardo-co...1984/.
