- The Practical Anarchist
The Practical Anarchist brings to light the work of Josiah Warren, eccentric American genius. Devoting his life to showing the practicality of an astonishing ideal, Warren devoted equal industry to the question of how to make a pair of shoes and how to remake the social world into an individualist paradise.
This will be the first chance for many readers to encounter Warren’s writings, and in many cases their first publication since their original appearance in obscure, self-published periodicals, including The Peaceful Revolutionist (1833), the first American anarchist periodical. Moreover, they often appeared in a bizarre experimental typography.
This volume presents, out of the welter of bewildering writings left by Warren, a reading text designed for today’ readers and students. It seeks to convey the practical value of many of Warren’s ideas, their continuing relevance.
"Crispin Sartwell's work makes a timely contribution, particularly given the recent economic crisis that has shaken many people's faith in the certainty of market systems. It is often believed that these economic systems have gone unchallenged from the origins of the country. Josiah Warren’s ideas remind us that thoughtful individuals can devise new approaches to economic issues."—Maurice Hamington, Metropolitan State College of Denver
"Sartwell does an outstanding job situating Warren's work within the
history of anarchist thought and within the history of American anarchism
in particular."—Kenneth Stikkers, Southern Illinois University
