Auteur: Levy, Carl
Titel: Colin Ward: Life, Times and Thought
Sub titel:

Colin Ward was one of the most significant thinkers and activists of the British anarchist movement in the twentieth century. He was a prolific journalist and had a historic and ongoing influence on political thought, most notably through his works on urban life, housing, squatters, children and criminology. Bringing together a range of historians, anthropologists and political theorists, this volume celebrates and analyses the influence of this uniquely approachable and creative form of anarchism. Contributors focus on Ward’s life and works, including analyses of: his contribution to the resurgence of anarchist journalism through 'War Commentary' and 'Freedom'; his impact on other activists; the relationship between his form of anarchism and the evolving New Left; how Ward’s ‘practical anarchism’ was influenced by the works of Peter Kropotkin; Ward’s Englishness; the contributions he made to British social policy in the post-war period; and his endorsement of the seemingly incompatible movements of social anarchism and lifestyle anarchism. Contributors: David Goodway, Robert Graham, Carissa Honeywell, Carl Levy, Peter Marshall, Brian Morris, Pietro Di Paola, Stuart White
