Today, anarchism is often dismissed as a poorly-thought-out excuse for mayhem used by miscreants bent on destruction. However, in truth, the concept of anarchism has been explored -- and sometimes championed -- by many of history's most important political thinkers. This fascinating volume takes a detailed look at this often-misunderstood political philosophy.
