Ron Sakolsky is a rare anarchist for a variety of reasons, including his longevity, his intellectual pursuits (especially challenging academia), and his embrace of art and the surrealists, a tendency that is not strong among modern anarchists and one that could stand to be renewed.

Creating Anarchy is a collection of his writings and art pieces by some surrealist friends, reflecting his interests and thinking over the past couple of decades. This new edition includes more recent pieces (including the particularly relevant "My Life in the Academic Gulag", in which he discusses how and if one can maintain anarchist positions within the academy) and a new introduction.
