Historical geography; Anarchism; Human geography
In the last few years, anarchism has been rediscovered as a transnational, cosmopolitan and multifaceted movement. Its traditions, often hastily dismissed, are increasingly revealing insights which inspire present-day scholarship in geography. This book provides a historical geography of anarchism, analysing the places and spatiality of historical anarchist movements, key thinkers, and the present scientific challenges of the geographical anarchist traditions. This volume offers rich and detailed insights into the lesser-known worlds of anarchist geographies with contributions from international leading experts. It also explores the historical geographies of anarchism by examining their expressions in a series of distinct geographical contexts and their development over time. Contributions examine the changes that the anarchist movement(s) sought to bring out in their space and time, and the way this spirit continues to animate the anarchist geographies of our own, perhaps often in unpredictable ways. There is also an examination of contemporary expressions of anarchist geographical thought in the fields of social movements, environmental struggles, post-statist geographies, indigenous thinking and situated cosmopolitanisms. This is valuable reading for students and researchers interested in historical geography, political geography, social movements and anarchism.

Reviews for Historical Geographies of Anarchism: Early Critical Geographers and Present-Day Scientific Challenges

Historical Geographies of Anarchism looks at both the early part of anarchism's evolution and speculates on its potential future(s). The book provides an overview of strains of anarchist thought that originated and were put into practice in various locations across the globe. The applied nature of anarchism is striking as many chapters provide examples of how anarchist thought is inseparable from everyday actions. The book is divided into three sections. The first covers Spaces of the History of Anarchism , with the second and third centring around Early Anarchist Geographies and their Places and Anarchist Geographies, Places and Present Challenges . - Nathan Poirier, Antipode - A Radical Journal of Geography
