Abstract:

"Elisée Reclus, a leading nineteenth-century geographer and revolutionary, made significant contributions to political thought, ecological philosophy, and urbanism. Anarchy, Geography, Modernity is the first work in English to present a comprehensive analysis of Reclus' social thought. In the first part of the book, John P. Clark and Camille Martin present an overview of Reclus' life and work, while the second part includes translations of Reclus' major theoretical writings (some for the first time in English), in addition to several popular essays.

An essential work for historians of anarchist and libertarian political thought, Reclus' writing provides a major expression of radical modernism with his sweeping account of human history as the story of progress toward a future world of human freedom, social cooperation, and restored harmony with nature."--Jacket.
