Demanding the Impossible - History of Anarchism
Publisher: HarperPerennial; New Ed edition (19 Nov 2007)
There are many books on the subject of anarchist theory and history, this is easily the most comprehensive and extensive. From Taoist monks through the French revolution, to the new left of the 60\\\'s and punks of the 70\'s.
Every era of history and every prominent figure of anarchism is here (even if they didn\\\'t describe themselves as anarchist). The subject is so broad ranging, that this book stands as a great history book, as well as a philosophical work. Keeping alive an idea that has never been allowed, but will never go away.
An excellent book for anybody interested in politics; history; philosophy; psychology and human beings in general.
