"Carlos Taibo has dived into vast fields of study.... In his books and lectures a mind both rational and kaleidoscopic emerges, from which flows an extremely subtle capacity for analysis. A mental scalpel that shreds the issues after having first categorized them—which facilitates a comprehensive understanding." —Rebelión news magazine

The first book by well- known Spanish social theorist Carlos Taibo translated into English, Rethinking Anarchy is both an introduction to and in-depth interrogation of anarchism as political philosophy and political strategy. Taibo introduces the basic tenets of anarchism while also engaging the debates around each of them, producing a book that will appeal to beginners and readers with extensive knowledge of the insurgent political movement. Topics include liberal versus direct democracy, the nature of the state, and how anarchism relates to feminism, environmentalism, and antimilitarism.

Carlos Taibo is Professor of Political Science and Administration at the Autonomous University of Madrid.

Automomies is an anarchist collective whose aim is to explore, imagine and thereby contribute to the creation of relations that deepen our freedom and equality. Members are based in Lisbon, Vancouver, and Toronto and some were previously involved with the Anarchist Communist Federation that published the North American Anarchist and Strike!
