9780520215733: In Defense of Anarchism (with a New Preface)

"A deep and provocative discussion of some of the most fundamental issues in political philosophy, written crisply, with candor, in a style that I find very winning. It is a most useful book, and a very good one."--Carl Cohen, author of Communism, Fascism, and Democracy

"A provocative and engrossing introduction to current questions of political legitimacy, consent, deliberative democracy, the basis of majority rule, workers collectives, etc., that have been taken up by contemporary political theorists."--Georgia Warnke, author of Justice and Interpretation

About the Author:

Robert Paul Wolff is Professor of Philosophy and Afro-American Studies at the University of Massachusetts. Among his books are About Philosophy (1998), The Ideal of the University (1992), The Autonomy of Reason (1990), Kant's Theory of Mental Activity (1990), and Moneybags Must Be So Lucky (1988).

Review:

"To entitle a book "In Defense of Anarchism simply requires "chutzpah. To do it well requires some intelligence. Professor Wolff has both. Anarchy, being generally relegated to the ideological dust-bin or drafted as fodder for editorializing blasts, has long been in need of an intelligent reassessment. Wolff's brief book attempts this by taking the reader along a political "via dolorosa which begins with his own innocent belief in 'traditional democratic doctrines.'"--Lawrence S. Stepelevich, "The New Scholasticism
