Kropotkin, Read, and the Intellectual History of British Anarchism explores this lost history, offering a new appraisal of the work of Kropotkin and Read, and examining the ways in which they endeavoured to articulate a politics fit for the particular challenges of Britain's modern history. This book traces how their politics emerged in response to the controversies animating Britain's intellectual history, including the social implications of Darwinism, the role of the state, and the status of modern art and culture. Challenging existing interpretations of their work, it re-conceptualises the history of British anarchism, uncovering the attempt to broaden anarchism, the politics of protest, into a comprehensive philosophical system"--"@en ;
