Abstract:

From William Morris and Oscar Wilde to George Orwell and Alex Comfort, left-libertarian thought has long been an important but neglected part of British cultural and political history. In Anarchist seeds beneath the snow, David Goodway seeks to recover and revitalize that indigenous anarchist tradition. This book succeeds simultaneously as a cultural history of left-libertarian though in Britain and a demonstration of the applicability of that history to current politics. Goodway argues that a recovered anarchist tradition could--and should--be a touchstone for contemporary political radicals. Moving seamlessly from Aldous Huxley, E.P. Thompson and Colin Ward to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this challenging volume will energize leftist movements throughout the world. -- Cover.
