The Anarchist Beast

Out of stock

From the preface:
We have decided to reprint this abridged version of Nhat Hong's well-researched pamphlet for several reasons. First is its archival value; it's the product of a time when anarchist ideas in North America were very unpopular if known at all, and Hong's thesis -- unlike many of those from his political persuasion who came later -i that it's not primarily anarchists who are responsible for that lack of popularity. He points to the broader and decades long cultural context of endlessly repeated negative images and stereotypes as a significant factor, one that is largely, if not completely, ignored by later critics who blame anarchists with goofy ideas from outside their own tendencies for anarchism's dearth of adherents.
