Social Anarchism Or Lifestyle Anarchism: An Unbridgable Chasm?


Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

This book asks - and attempts to answer - several basic questions that affect all Leftists today. Will anarchism remain a revolutionary social movement or become a chic boutique lifestyle subculture? Will its primary goals be the complete transformation of a hierarchical, class, and irrational society into a libertarian communist one? Or will it become an ideology focused on personal well-being, spiritual redemption, and self-realisation within the existing society?

In an era of privatism, kicks, introversion, and postmodernist nihilism, Murray Bookchin forcefully examines the growing nihilsitic trends that threaten to undermine the revolutionary tradition of anarchism and coopt its fragments into a harmless personalistic, yuppie ideology of social accommodation that presents no threat to the existing powers-that-be. This small book, tightly reasoned and documented, should be of interest to all radicals in the postmodern age - socialists as well as anarchists, for whom the Left seems in hopeless disarray.

Written by Murray Bookchin, published by AK Press, 1996.
