Argues that the policy of the International must ignore religious beliefs and political affiliations when considering membership, since to focus on such issues is to destroy unity between workers.

An excellent anthology of Bakunin's ideas, drawing on excerpts and selections from his letters, speeches, essays etc. It is, in fact, the most useful of the anthologies of Bakunin's work, setting out his writings in a chronological order that makes sense of the somewhat disparate nature of his oeuvre.

Works by Galleani:
239. The End of Anarchism? Sanday, Orkney: Cienfuegos Pr., 1982. Luigi Galleani and Saverio Merlino were militant anarchists working together in the 1880's.

Includes an introduction which locates the debate historically and reproduces the original interview with Merlino. Merlino, at this later stage in his career, also debated with Malatesta on the question of the utility of elections.

Shows that Godwin applied his political principles in practice. He attacked the government's attempt to change the legal definition of treason, and influenced public opinion in favour of the prisoners on trial for treasonable writings.

In three volumes, the first two being facsimile reproductions of Godwin's work and the third a thorough-going attempt to locate Godwin in the eighteenth century philosophical tradition, assessing the influences on him and his aims in writing Political Justice. This facsimile reproduction makes very difficult reading.

The fourth volume, devoted to Cromwell, is the first history of the period written from a republican perspective.
250. The History of the Life of William Pitt, Earl of Chatham. 2nd edition. London: G. Kearsley, 1783. Although not highly regarded as a biography of Pitt, it provides a glimpse of the early Godwin. He discusses Pitt's first Tory administration and his opposition to American Independence.
251. Letters of Verax, to the Editor of the Morning Chronicle, on the Question of a War to be Commenced for the Purpose of Putting an End to the Supreme Power in France of Napoleon Bonaparte.

It is suggested that Godwin was less than enthusiastic about some reform measures, and was guilty of elitism. While advocating radicalism in theory he was conservative in practice. See entries 287, 289 and 300.
303. Locke, D. A Fantasy of Reason: Life and Thought of William Godwin. London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1980. A detailed study of Godwin's life and works set in the context of his times which seeks both to account for Godwin's relative obscurity and to discuss and analyze his philosophy.

Concludes that Falkland's tyrannical behavior in the latter half of the book and Caleb's earlier rashness and deceit are both condemned.
312. Paul, C. K. William Godwin: His Friends and Contemporaries. 2 vols. London: H. S. King, 1876.

317. Priestman, D. G. "Godwin, Schiller and the Polemics of Coleridge's Osorio." Bulletin of Research in the Humanities 82,2 (Summer 1979): 236- 49. Discusses Osorio as a critical response to Godwin's Political Justice.
318. Ritter, A. "Godwin, Proudhon and the Anarchist Justification of Punishment." Political Theory 3,1 (1975): 68-87.

320. Rosen, F. "The Principle of Population as Political Theory: Godwin's Of Population and the Malthusian Controversy." Journal of the History of Ideas 31,1 (1970): 33-48.

321. Scrivener, M. H. "Godwin's Philosophy: A Revaluation." Journal of the History of Ideas 39,4 (1978): 615-26. Outlines Godwin's gradualist position which in essence asserts that the elevation of consciousness is the revolution.

325. Stafford, W. "Dissenting Religion Translated into Politics: Godwin's Political Justice." History of Political Thought 1,2 (1980): 279-301. Suggests that argument pursued by Godwin in Political Justice should be seen as influenced by the debate between the Sandemanians and Methodists.

Such a study reveals a person whose insistence on the value of personal autonomy jarred with his aspirations to found a new social order.

341. The Place of the Individual in Society. Chicago: The Free Society Forum, 193-.

347. The Tragedy of Woman's Emancipation. New York: Mother Earth Pubg. Assn., 1910. Argues that women's servitude is created by the nature of the social order.

PAUL GOODMAN (1911-1972)
Works by Goodman:
This selection from Goodman's wide range of publications focuses on his anarchism and related themes.
401. "Anarchism and Revolution." In Great Ideas Today. Chicago: Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1970. Republished in Drawing the Line, 215-32. Op.cit, entry 421. A definition of anarchism and its relationship to revolution. Goodman takes up the issue of the youth revolt, identifying it as anarchist, and repeating material from "The Black Flag of Anarchism."
402. "The Black Flag of Anarchism." In Drawing the Line, 203-14. Op.cit., entry 421. Published in the New York Times Magazine, 14 July 1968. One of Goodman's best known arguments regarding decentralizing principles. Asserts that the student revolt is based on anarchist principles of decentralization, anti-police, anti-party, anti-bureaucracy, pro-spontaneity and voluntary organization, direct action etc. Criticism is made of neo- Leninist elements of the student alliance.
403. Communitas. Co-author Percival Goodman. New York: Alfred Knopf, 1947. Written with his architect brother, this early work is hailed by many as perhaps Goodman's most important work. Exploring ideas on the planning of cities, while embracing rather than eschewing utopianism, it is a book that examines the first principles underlying the formation of human communities. Further it seeks to develop a framework for the creation of communities that can provide for all human needs, the spiritual and the aesthetic as well as the material.
404. The Community of Scholars. New York: Random Hse., 1962. Discusses the 1,900 American Colleges and Universities as the only important remaining, self-governing communities. Goodman described this work as "an anarchist critique of the the colleges," where "I show how certain centers of learning were doing beautifully before they officially 'existed' at all." (Seeds of Liberation, 439. Op.cit., entry 417). Goodman discusses the tensions that can exist between the goals of these communities and the goals of the society in which they exist. He argues that scholars must not conform to outside pressures for performance, and that the community of scholars must be prepared to confront society.
405. Compulsory Mis-education. New York: Alfred Knopf, 1962. A libertarian argument against compulsory education, advocating decentralization, voluntary learning and a focus on the individual worth of each student. The philosophy of A. S. Neill provides a reference point, for the assertion that the aim must be to encourage understanding rather than simply a knowledge of facts.
406. "Confusion and Order." In Drawing the Line, 233-45. Op.cit., entry 421. Discusses the problems of modern society; crowding, urbanization, pollution, technological domination and the attendant dehumanization, and the break-down of the social order. Concludes that it is promising, from the viewpoint of an anarchist and a psychologist, when things fall apart that have been too tightly and artificially held together.
407. "The Empty Society." Commentary 42,5 (Nov. 1966): 53-60. A criticism of American society as an empty system based on empty institutions, a corporate and bureaucratic society that has lost its common sense. The only hope lies in American traditions of populism, democracy, individualism and liberty. In a revised form this essay forms Chapter VI, "Is American Democracy Viable?" of Like a Conquered Province, 353-70. Op.cit., entry 411.
408. "The Formal Content of Democracy." In Drawing the Line, 178-84. Op.cit., entry 421. A draft of Chapter 2 of People and Personnel. Also published in Liberation (June-July 1964). Charts the movement from the individualist anarchism of the Frontier to the institutionalized, corporate democracy of modern society.
409. "Freedom and Learning: The Need for Choice." Anarchy 94 (Dec.1968): 372-4. An account of Goodman's views on the need for free, that is liberated, education and education for freedom.
410. "Kropotkin at this Moment." Anarchy 98 (April 1969): 124-8. Discusses the renewal of interest in the ideas of Kropotkin. Written as a preface to the Horizon Press ■Edition of Kropotkin's Memoirs of a Revolutionist, op.cit., entry 506.
411. Like a Conquered Province: The Moral Ambiguity of America. New York: Vintage Bks., 1968. Published in a double volume with People or Personnel, entry 414, it argues that the vital conflict today is between a global, dehumanized system and human decency. It is a struggle for the survival of human values. This double edition also contains seven essays previously unpublished in book form.
412. New Reformation: Notes of a Neolithic Conservative. New York: Random Hse., 1970. Calls for a complete restructuring of American society to make it ecologically aware and organizationally decentralized. In the section "Legitimacy" Goodman describes his theory of anarchy, emphasizing decentralization and participatory democracy. In "Notes of a Neolithic Conservative" Goodman embraces a gradualism that makes of anarchism a process of changing consciousness towards freedom.
413. "Notes on Decentralization." In Drawing the Line, 185-202. Op.cit., entry 421. Notes towards People or Personnel published in Dissent (Autumn 1964). A critique of centralized systems, including the school system, monolithic communication systems and transport systems. Advocates mixed systems, with decentralization allowing for autonomous activity.
414. People or Personnel: Decentralizing and the Mixed System. New York: Vintage Bks., 1968. Published in a double volume with Like a Conquered Province, this is a critique of American society and its military-industrial complex that deplores the way in which people have become dehumanized, 'personnel' within over-centralized and over-organized industrial and urban structures. Decentralization is advocated as a remedy to this denial, by modern society, of human worth and meaning, and to the concomitant stultification of social progress.
415. "The Present Moment in Education." Anarchy 107 (Jan. 1970): 1-17. Reprinted from the New York Review of Books, 10 April, 1969, the article sets out Goodman's educational philosophy and its implications for social theory.

Mainly reprinted from the journal Liberation, the volume also contains some new essays. Includes work by Martin Luther King, Lewis Mumford, Gene Hoffman, Aldous Huxley, Dave Dellinger and Goodman himself. In "Getting Into Power," 433-44, Goodman reviews the Senate campaign of a pacifist, discusses conventional systems of power, and concludes that a radical pacifism must be in agreement with anarchism on the need to diminish abstract authority and decentralize power.
418. The Society I Live in Is Mine. New York: Horizon Pr., 1963. A collection of Goodman's letters published in his neighborhood newspaper, speeches book reviews etc.. The purpose of the collection is to urge, by example, that people become more concerned, involved and, thereby, authentic citizens.
419. Utopian Essays and Practical Proposals. New York: Vintage Bks., 1964. A collection of essays in which Goodman argues that the chief social problem facing Americans is the drive for greater and greater technological domination with a concomitant dehumanization of human beings who, increasingly, feel impoverished and powerless.
420. "Utopian Means They Don't Want To Do It." Anarchy 85 (March 1968): 87-9. A rejection of the terms "utopian"and a call for positive action for reform.
421. Drawing the Line: Political Essays. Edited by Taylor Stoehr. New York: Free Life Editions, 1977. A selection of Goodman's political essays covering the period from the early 1940s to 1972.

Like the articles that were collected for The Conquest of Bread, a similar series of articles was written for Freedom from October 1886 until 1890. But these articles were not collected at the time, although Kropotkin wanted to see them in book form. This volume represents the publication of this collection and covers a gap in the ouevre of Kropotkin. "The Coming Revolution" opens the series, arguing that an international, proletarian revolution was imminent and would spread to Britain. "What Revolution Means" asserts the need for far-reaching political and economic structural change, while "Act for Yourselves" argues that the revolution should involve direct action and expropriation. In "Parliamentary Rule" a case is made against parliamentary democracy. Elsewhere direct action is urged ("Local Action") and a revolutionary approach to land reform ('The End Set Before Us"), the expropriation of property and the creation of communism ("The Necessity of Communism"). "Practical Questions" looks at post-revolution issues, while other essays deal with the supply of food ("Revolution and Famine"), human nature and utopianism ("Are We Good Enough?") and the abolition of the wage system ("Communism and the Wage System").

Kropotkin sets out the principles of communist anarchism, asserting the vital differences between free anarchism and state orientated socialism.

468. Anarchist Morality. Freedom Pamphlets No.6. London: Freedom Office, 1896? Originally published in La Revolte in March/April 1890. A discussion of morals setting out ideas developed later in his Ethics.

In Revolutionary Pamphlets, 79-113. Op.cit., entry 538.
469. "Anarchists and the French Revolution." Freedom 17, 183 (Dec. 1904): 1/18,184 (Jan. 1904): 1-2. Kropotkin takes issue with Brissot's attack on "Anarchists" in the French Revolution in his Brissot to his Constituents, 23 May, 1793.

Works by Malatesta:
616. Al caffe: Conversazioni sull anarchismo. Torino: Edizioni del CDA-La Fiaccola, 1978. Collected Bologna: 1922. Reprinted, Torino: Sargref, 1961. This is a collection of seventeen dialogues on anarchism that ranks with Fra Contadini and L'Anarchia in demonstrating Malatesta's genius for presenting complex arguments in a manner that makes them easily understandable. The dialogues, presumed to take place in a cafe, involve a variety of protagonists, a bourgeois, a shopkeeper, a student and an anarchist. They were produced over a number of years. The first ten were written in 1897 and appeared in L'Agitazione (Ancona). In 1913 Malatesta republished them, with the addition of four new dialogues, in the journal Volonta which he was editing at the time.The last three dialogues were written in 1922 for the first edition of the collected dialogues, which appeared in that year under the title Al Caffe.

A debate between Malatesta and Merlino, representing, respectively, the anarchist and social democratic positions on the use of the electoral process. Malatesta invited Merlino to debate the question in a letter to II Messaggero on 29 January 1887. The debate continued in the pages of the journal for almost a year. See also entry 239.

619. "Anarchism and Syndicalism." Freedom 21,223 (Nov. 1907): 65-6. Argues that anarchists should not identify themselves completely with syndicalism. It should be seen as only one of a number of forms of propagandist action that can be directed to anarchist goals.
620. "Anarchist Have Forgotten their Principles." Freedom 28,307 (Nov. 1914): 86. Part of a symposium on war in which Grave and Kropotkin took part, this is Malatesta's strong anti-war statement. See entries 454 and 471.
621. Anarchy. London: Freedom Pr., 1974. A translation by Vernon Richards, from the Italian original L'Anarchia, London: 1891. The first English translation appeared in serial form in the journal Freedom from September 1891 to June 1892. The work has since been issued as a pamphlet by Freedom Press on numerous occasions. Perhaps the best known of Malatesta's pamphlets it develops a strong argument about the origins and bases of government and authority. In places it moves close to a Marxist position on social class, while skilfully delineating a distinct anarchist position. Malatesta is alleged to have said in 1920 that he considered Anarchy to be the best piece he had written.
622. Le due vie. The Two Roads. Milano: 1920. This discussion of the two roads or paths, contrasts reform with revolution. While rejecting social democracy in favour of revolution, Malatesta is severely critical of the path of the Bolshevik revolution in Russia.
623 Fra contadini. Publicazione del giornalo La Questione Sociale, Firenze: 1884. English translation by Jean Weir; Italian title retained. Port Glasgow: Bratach Dubh Pubns., 1981. In 1884 Malatesta founded the weekly La Questione Sociale, the first serious, propagandist, anarchist paper to be published in Italy. Fra Contadini, one of Malatesta's most popular and widely read pamphlets, appeared that year. It depicts a conversation - a form that Malatesta frequently adopted - between peasants (fra contadini) in which the nature of work, the ownership of wealth and land and the existence of the bourgeois/landlord class are all examined. The virtues of communist anarchism are lauded as an answer to these problems.
624. "Peter Kropotkin - Recollections and Criticisms of an Old Friend." Studii Sociali (15 April, 1931). Contained in Errico Malatesta: His Life and Ideas, 257-68. Op.cit, entry 630.

697. System of Economic Contradictions: Or, the Philosophy of Poverty (Systeme des contradictions economique : Ou philosophic de la misere.) Translated by Benjamin Tucker. Boston: 1888. Originally published in Paris: Guillaumin 1846 this was the work that angered Marx. Proudhon argued that since economic contradictions between capital and labor were inescapable, the principle of justice must be applied to bring about mutual agreement. To Marx any suggestion that economic contradictions must be accepted was anathema. Moreover, any principle of justice tended to divert attention from problems of production to issues of distribution. It must be dismissed as counter-revolutionary. Marx's attack on Proudhon was made in the deliberately entitled The Poverty of Philosophy.
698. Theorie de la propriete. Paris: A. Lacroix, 1866.
699. What is Property? (Qu'est ce que la. propriete ?) Translated by Benjamin Tucker. Princeton: 1876. Republished New York: Howard Fertig, 1966. Originally published Paris: Brocard, 1840 Proudhon's swingeing attack on the property relations of his day answered the question posed by the title with a simple one-word answer, "Theft!" The employment of a number of laborers as a collective labor force produces values and benefits in excess of those that would be produced if the efforts of the individual laborers were employed in isolated activities. Yet, notwithstanding the extra value produced by collective labor power, the workers are paid as if employed as individuals doing separate tasks. It is in this way that a hidden value is aggrandized by the employer and "theft" takes place.

701. Selected Writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Edited with an introduction by Stewart Edwards. Translated from the French by Elizabeth Fraser. London: Macmillan, 1970.

Works about Proudhon:
702. Allen, M. B. "P.-J. Proudhon in the Revolution of 1848." Journal of Modern History 24,1 (March 1952): 1-15. Discusses Proudhon's argument that revolution must be generated from below and not imposed from above.
703. Bowie, J. "Proudhon's Attack on the State." In Politics and Opinion in the Nineteenth Century, 152-67. New York: Jonathon Cape, 1954. Argues that Proudhon's deepest roots were in peasant life and that all his ideas relate to a concept of social justice based on the dignity of man.
704. Brogan, D. W. Proudhon. London: Hamilton, 1934. A short biographical study that is more of an introduction than a detailed analysis.
705. Butchart, M. "Marx and Proudhon." The Criterion 17,68 (April 1938): 445-57. Compares and contrasts their economic analyses and concludes that, in the light of events, Proudhon's analysis was arguably more realistic.
706. Carr, E. H. "Proudhon: Robinson Crusoe of Socialism." In his Studies in Revolution, 38-55. New York: Macmillan, 1964. Outlines Proudhon's rejection of the State and his advocacy of federalism, but is unsympathetic to Proudhon and anarchism in general, focussing mainly on Proudhon's inconsistencies. While not denying his sincerity, Carr concludes that both Proudhon and anarchism share a common nobility and futility.
707. Chadwick, W. "The Mailed Fist vs. the Invisible Hand." Reason 10,5 (1978): 18-23. See entry 59.

709. Condit, S. Proudhonist Materialism and Revolutionary Doctrine. Sanday, Orkney: Cienfuegos, Pr, 1982. Beginning with a discussion of Proudhon's materialism this short work proceeds to analyze to good effect his approach to property, distinguishing between property and possession.
710. Crapo, P. B. "The Anarchist as Critic: Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's Criticism of Literature and Art." Michigan Academician 13,4 (1981): 459-73. Discusses the many disparaging criticisms of Proudhon's ability as an art critic, suggesting that, while his philosophy of the arts is a contentious, he was, in fact, reasonably competent to work in this field.
711. Crapo, P. B. "Proudhon's Conspiratorial View of Society." Journal of European Studies 11,3 (1981): 184-95. Argues that commentators and analysts have neglected Proudhon's overly dramatic and conspiratorial view of the workings of the State.
712. Dillard, D. "Keynes and Proudhon." Journal of Economic History 2,1 (1942): 63-77. Demonstrates that major similarities exist between their works even though their theories were worked out in very different circumstances and with different aims. The more common comparison of the ideas of Marx and Keynes is used in the discussion.
713. Du Lubac, H. The Un-Marxian Socialist: A Study of Proudhon. Translated by R. E. Scantlebury. London: Sheed & Ward, 1948. Originally published in 1945 as Proudhon et le Christianisme, it discusses Proudhon's ideas in relation to Christianity.
714. Hall, C. M. The Sociology of P.-J. Proudhon, 1809-1863. New York: Philosophical Library, 1971.

715. Hamerton, P. G. "Proudhon as a Writer on Art." Fortnightly Review 4,19 (15 Feb. 1886): 142-62. Concentrates on Proudhon's weaknesses as an art critic rather than addressing his major theme in Du principe de I'art et de sa destination sociale, that of the role of Courbet and modern art as a force for change in society.
716. Harbold, W. H. "Justice in the Thought of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon." Western Political Quarterly 22 A (Dec. 1969): 723-41. Argues that Proudhon considered justice to be the principle of social order immanent in historical experience.
717. Harbold, W. H. "Progressive Humanity in the Philosophy of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon." Review of Politics 31,1 (1969): 3-47. Traces the development of Proudhon's ideas on progress.
718. Harley, J. H. "Proudhon and the Labor Movement." Socialist Review 3 (1909): 273-83. Written on the occasion of Proudhon's centenary it compares Marx and Proudhon, emphasizing Proudhon's socialist ideas rather than his anarchism.
719. Hoffman, R. "Marx and Proudhon: A Reappraisal of Their Relationship" The Historian. 29,3 (May 1967): 409-30. Argues that Marx and Proudhon, in spite of their common concerns with socialism and the philosophy of Hegel, shared no real common ground.
720. Hoffman, R. L. Revolutionary Justice: The Social and Political Theory of P.-}. Proudhon. Chicago: Univ. of Illinois Pr., 1972. A comprehensive study of Proudhon's ideas, incorporating biographical information, that draws out the philosophy of Proudhon with sympathy and clarity. Bibliography.
721. Hyams, E. Pierre-]oseph Proudhon: His Revolutionary Life, Mind and Works. London: J. Murray, 1979. An assessment of Proudhon's ideas which are categorized as being those of libertarian socialism. The author argues that existing socialism is, in general, split into two, Marxism and trade unionism, each having its own social vision and strategy for social change. Proudhon's libertarian socialism offers a way out of the dilemma created by this division.
722. Jackson, J. J. Marx, Proudhon and European Socialism. London: English Universities Pr., 1958. Through studies of the two thinkers the work argues for two distinct strands of European socialism, the one authoritarian, the other anarchist. Much more sympathetic to Proudhon than Marx.
723. Jackson, J. J. "Proudhon: A Prophet in Our Time." Contemporary Review. 165, 939 (March 1944): 156-9. Also in Why? 3,4 (Sept.-Oct. 1944). Written during World War II it addresses the threat of totalitarianism and looks to anarchism as an alternative. Proudhon is identified as the tradition's founder. The misunderstanding of Proudhon's ideas was due, it is argued, to Marx's jealousy and invective. In fact, Proudhon's ideas may have a future relevance.
724. Jackson, J. J. "The Relevance of Proudhon." Politics 2 (Oct. 1945): 297-9. Traces Proudhon's life and influence as well as popular misconceptions about him, predicting that people reacting against increasing authoritarianism may rediscover Proudhon in their search for an alternative.
725. King, P. T. Fear of Power: An Analysis of Anti-Statism in Three French Writers. London: Cass, 1967. A critical analysis of the ideas of Proudhon, Sorel and Tocqueville which concludes that power is inherently neither good nor evil; whatever social good is achieved comes through good government.
726. Lewis, W. "Proudhon and Rousseau". In The AH of Being Ruled, 333-75. New York and London: Chatto and Windus, 1926. An extended discussion that compares various aspects of the thought of Proudhon and Rousseau.

728. Marx, K. "Political Indifferentism." Bulletin of the Society for the Study of Labour History 20 (1970) 19-23. A direct attack on Proudhon and, by implication, Bakunin.
729. Marx, K. The Poverty of Philosophy- Moscow: Progress Pubs., 1963. Marx's definitive critique of Proudhon's social philosophy and political economy, the title a deliberate inversion of Proudhon's The Philosophy of Poverty, op.cit., entry 696.
730. Nelson, R. "The Federal Idea in French Political Thought." Publius. 5,3 (1975): 7-63. Through an examination of a range of thinkers, including Proudhon, it is argued that ideas about social and political alternatives develop dialectically.
731. Noland, A. "History and Humanity: The Proudhonian Version." In The Uses of History, edited by Hayden V. White, 59-106. Detroit: Wayne State Univ. Pr., 1968. Examines Proudhon's historical thought and work within the context of the general preoccupation with history in the nineteenth century. Argues that Proudhon believed that no new order had been properly established after the French Revolution had removed the old, and so sought to discover the organizing principle on which the new society might be based.
732. Noland, A. "Pierre-Joseph Proudhon as a Social Scientist." American journal of Economics and Sociology 26,3 (1967): 313-28. Concludes that for Proudhon the true science of society consisted in the study of the behavior of collective forces.
733. Noland, A. "Proudhon and Rousseau." Journal of the History of Ideas 28,1 (1967): 33-54. Examines the often striking parallels between the ideas of the two thinkers and suggests that Rousseau should be regarded as one of the "masters" of Proudhon.
734. Noland, A. "Proudhon's Sociology of War." American Journal of Economics and Sociology 29,3 (July 1970): 289-304. Outlines Proudhon's theory of war, noting its stark contrast with the anti-war views of his socialist contemporaries.
735. Osgood, H. L. "Scientific Anarchism." Political Science Quarterly 4,l(March 1889): 1-36. An analysis of anarchism which, focussing on the ideas of Proudhon, contrasts its individualistic and communistic forms. Examines public responses in America to the perceived threat of anarchism and concludes that no system of government is of itself good or evil, rather it is the character of those who govern that is crucial.
736. Pickles, W. "Marx and Proudhon." Politica 3,13 (1938): 236-60. Regrets the bitterness of the struggle between the respective doctrines of Marx and Proudhon, suggesting that they are, in fact, to a large extent complementary.
737. Prelot, M. "Pierre-Joseph Proudhon." In the International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, 604-6. New York: Macmillan & The Free Pr., 1968. An introductory outline of Proudhon's life, ideas, activities and influence.

739. Reichert, W. O. "Art, Nature and Revolution." (The aesthetics of Proudhon, Kropotkin and Bakunin). Arts in Society. 9,3 (1972): 409-30. See entry 117.
740. Reichert, W. O. "Pierre-Joseph Proudhon: One of the Fathers of Philosophical Anarchism." Journal of Human Relations 13,1 (1965): 81-92. Aims to rescue the Proudhonian tradition from ideas of terrorism and nihilism, claiming that to adopt his position is to reject the violent overthrow of the State and to advocate non-violent persuasion aimed at the highest moral ends.
741. Reichert, W. O. "Natural Right in the Political Philosophy of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon." Journal of Libertarian Studies 4,1 (Winter 1980): 77-91. Argues that Proudhon had a highly developed philosophy of law. His idea of 'Justice' presupposed a free social order where individuals, unaided by governments, would arrive at agreements as to what constitutes 'natural right'. Reprinted in Law and Anarchism, 122-40. Op.cit, entry 1413.
742. Rieff, P. "A Jesuit looks at Proudhon: Competition in Damnation." Modern Review. 3,2 (Jan. 1950). A review article of Henri du Lubac, The Un-Marxian Socialist op. cit, entry 713.

745. Ritter, A. "Proudhon and the Problem of Community." Review of Politics 29A (1967): 457-77. Examines Proudhon's theory of community as an attempt to reconcile individual freedom with social peace. His perspective, it is suggested, is, while radical, realistic.
746. Rogers, J. A. "Proudhon and the Transformation of Russian 'Nihilism'." Cahiers du Monde Russe et Sovietique 13,4 (1972): 514-23. Argues that Proudhon's theories had a significant influence in Russia in the 1860's, leading directly to the rise of the school of Russian "subjective sociology."
747. Rubin, J. H. Realism and Social Vision in Courbet and Proudhon. Princeton Essays on the Arts No. 10. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton Univ. Pr., 1981. Argues that Courbet's work represented a profound opposition to the ruling classes of the Second Empire. Thus Courbet's painting and Proudhon's social theory must be seen as inseparable, representing a confluence of romanticism and positive consciousness that led to modern art. Includes a select bibliography.
748. Schapiro, S. J. "Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Harbinger of Fascism." American Historical Review 50,4 (July 1945): 714-37. Denies that Proudhon was an anarchist because he believed in the principle of private enterprise. Yet, at the same time, he opposed profit and interest. Proudhon's repudiation of democracy and large-scale capitalism, Schapiro argues, mean that the fascists can justifiably claim him as a precursor.
749. Silvera, A. Daniel Halevy and his Times. Ithaca: Cornell Univ. Pr., 1966. Though not directly about Proudhon, this work discusses his influence on fin de siecle intellectuals.
750. Simon, Y. R. "A Note on Proudhon's Federalism." Publius: Journal of Federalism 3,1 (1973): 19-31. Suggests that in writing The Federal Principle Proudhon offered his finished conception of an anarchist society and its political organisation.
751. Simon, Y. R. "The Problem of Transcendence and Proudhon's Challenge." Thought 54 (June 1979): 176-85. An attack on those of Proudhon's arguments which center on the existence and role of God in human affairs. Makes particular reference to De la justice dans la revolution et dans I'eglise.
752. Spear, L. "Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and the Myth of Universal Suffrage." Canadian Journal of History 10,3 (1975): 295-306. Argues that Proudhon did not oppose authentic universal suffrage, but denied that its existence as myth offered any long term social solution.
753. Vincent, S. K. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and the Rise of French Socialism. New York: Oxford Univ. Pr., 1984. Argues for Proudhon's significance as a pioneer of reformist socialism through an analysis of his activities in the republican movements that emerged under the July monarchy. The work challenges, however, Proudhon's place within anarchism, arguing that morally he was religious, politically republican, and in economics, a socialist.
754. Watkins, F. M. "Proudhon and the Theory of Modern Liberalism." Canadian Journal of Economics and Political Science 13,3 (Aug. 1947): 429-35. Suggests that Proudhon's political thought is better adapted to the practice of modern parliamentarianism than are orthodox liberal theories.
755. Woodcock, G. "Proudhon and his Mutualist Theories." In The Writer and Politics, 42-55. London: Porcupine Pr., 1948. A discussion of Proudhon in the context of a study of the relationship between the writer and society, in particular social movements for reform or revolution.
756. Woodcock, G. "Proudhon, an Appreciation." Dissent 2,4 (Autumn 1955): 394-405. Suggests that Marx and Marxist political economy in general owe a great deal more to the work of Proudhon than is generally recognized. Particular reference is made to What is Property?, op.cit, entry 698.
757. Woodcock, G. "The Solitary Revolutionary. Proudhon's Notebooks." Encounter 33,192 (1969): 46-55. Woodcock discovered the whereabouts of the 11 notebooks in 1951.

758. Woodcock, G. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon: A Biography. London: Routledge & Paul, 1956. A biographical study with a close analysis of his key ideas and principles.
HERBERT READ (1893-1968)
Works by Read:
The selection is limited to his anarchism or to anarchist themes in his work.
759. Anarchy and Order: Essays in Politics. Introduction by Howard Zinn. London: Souvenir Pr., 1974. Also Boston: Beacon Pr., 1971. Assembles all the essays he wrote specifically on anarchism. His work is based on faith in the fundamental goodness of people. He stresses the creative possibilities while accepting the vulnerability of social organization based on anarchist principles.
760. Art and Industry. New York: Horizon Pr., 1961. The book that had a vital influence on the development of the principles underlying industrial design. It relates to anarchist theory through its discussion of the connection between the uniqueness of individual products of art and industrial standardization. Implicit is Read's conception that the fully integrated human personality must have fully developed aesthetic dimensions.
761. The Cult of Sincerity. London: Faber & Faber, 1968. A collection of essays set out in two parts. The first part contains essays in which Read expresses his personal philosophy. In the title essay, for example, he discusses selfhood, freedom and authenticity. The second part contains critical sketches of important contemporaries, including T. S. Eliot, Jung, Russell and D. H. Lawrence.
762. Education through Art. London: Faber & Faber, 1942? A discussion of education and art that stresses the importance of developing aesthetic sensibility. The broad purpose of education, Read argues, is to encourage both the development of individual human uniqueness and potential and the social consciousness of each individual as a member of a community.
763. Essential Communism. London: S. Nott, 1935. Argues that the most difficult step in social reform lies not with the will for change, but in people's reluctance to implement a rational plan because of a fear of sacrificing individuality to the community. Nevertheless the pamphlet looks towards a society without poverty or social injustice, where order and beauty will be the outer manifestations of a free, vital and romantic spirit.
764. Existentialism, Marxism and Anarchism and Chains of Freedom. London: Freedom Pr., 1949. Two essays in the one volume. The first is a discussion of existentialism and its concern for freedom, noting the Marxist position, and arguing that the only political philosophy that combines a revolutionary and contingent attitude with a philosophy of freedom is anarchism. The second piece consists of stray notes and ideas towards a philosophy of freedom.

Concern is expressed that they might remain in place after the war.
767. Icon and Idea: The Function of Art in the Development of Human Consciousness. London: Faber & Faber, 1955. Reed argues that art is "the essential instrument in the development of human consciousness." It demonstrates why the aesthetic sense is so vital to his concept of the human in politics.

769. Poetry and Anarchism. Philadelphia: R. West, 1978. Originally published London: Faber & Faber, 1938. Written out of a despair regarding the problems of contemporary society. Espouses a broadly anarchist solution yet concludes that the only refuge for people is within themselves - a sort of private anarchism. Reviewing a new edition in 1948 George Woodcock called it "one of the most valuable and best written books on libertarian thought in the English language." Freedom (7 Feb. 1948).
770. The Politics of the Unpolitical. London: Routledge, 1943.

772. The Redemption of the Robot: My Encounter with Education through Art. London: Faber & Faber, 1970. A book that, while focussing on the processes of education, sets out a number of Read's key political beliefs, including the uniqueness and worth of the individual, free education and the fostering of individual development, the need for decentralization, the role of art and aesthetics, and the dangers of technology, centralization, urbanization and bureaucracy.
773. To Hell with Culture and Other Essays. London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1963. Several essays are reprinted from The Politics of the Unpolitical, op.cit., entry 770. The independence and individuality of the creative mind is emphasized within the context of a discussion of culture, democracy, revolution and art. Art, it is asserted is independent of politics, having little concern with any political system. It is an unpolitical manifestation of the autonomous and creative human spirit.

Works by Rocker:

LYSANDER SPOONER (1808-1887)
Works by Spooner:
824. Collected Works. Weston, Mass.: M & S Pr., 1971.
825. An Essay on Trial by Jury. New York: Da Capo Pr., 1971. Originally published Boston: J. P. Jewett & Co.,1852. A discussion of common law trial by jury, tracing its history from Magna Carta, while asserting that there are no legal juries in the United States since principles like the eligibility of all freeman for jury service have been breached.
826. A Letter to Grover Cleveland on His False Inaugural Address, the Usurpations and Crimes of Lawmakers and Judges, and the Consequent Poverty, Ignorance, and Servitude of the People. Boston: B. R. Tucker, 1886. Takes issue with Cleveland's promise to administer law "justly". Government is not concerned with justice but the protection of selfish interests. The Legislature is really four hundred "champion robbers." There must be a destruction of money-monopoly and the restoration of free labor and free money.
827. "No Treason I." In Individual Anarchist Pamphlets. New York: Arno pr., 1972. The collection is subtitled "The Right Wing Individualist Tradition in America." The pamphlets are reproduced as they were originally printed with individual page numbering. This piece by Spooner, originally published by Spooner himself, Boston: 1867, was written to address issues raised by a consideration of government by consent. The Constitution of the United States, Spooner argues, stresses consent, and implies the separate consent of every individual required to pay taxes or to provide personal service to the support of the government. The Civil War demonstrates the reality of rule by the strongest party.
828. "No Treason II." In Individual Anarchist Pamphlets. New York: Arno Pr., 1972. Originally published by Spooner himself, Boston: 1867, this is another pamphlet addressing issues of consent raised by the Civil War. Spooner argues that since the Constitution of the United States rests on the principle of continuous consent, withdrawal of that consent, that is secession, is not treason. But since force has overtaken consent both North and South are in error, since both assume allegiance and consent where none exists. The result is a war between chattel slavery and political slavery with true freedom existing on neither side.
829. "No Treason VI." In American Issues. Vol. 1. The Social Record, edited Willard Thorp, Merle Curtis and Carlos Baker, 569-74. Chicago/Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1944. The third of Spooner's extant pamphlets in the series. Despite the numbering there appears to be no record of others. In this, the most radical of the pamphlets, Spooner raises the question of who has robbed humanity of property and restrained liberty. He concludes that since, in modern society, money is power, it is the power of rich capitalism that lies behind government and has, thus, abrogated those liberties guaranteed by the Constitution.
830. Poverty: Its Illegal Causes and Legal Cure. Boston: 1846. A discussion of debt and credit advocating Warren's principles of equitable commerce as a solution to the problem of poverty. Poverty occurs because of a violation of the economic principles of natural law which, inter alia, include the right of every man to the fruits of his own labor, the right of every man to be his own employer and the right of every man to have capital for his labor to work on.
831. The Unconstitutionality of Slavery. New York: Burt Franklin, 1966. Originally published in 1852, and in an expanded form in 1857, this is a reprint of the 1860 edition published in Boston. It argues, from interpretations of law and the Constitution of the United States, that slavery is not constitutional since all men are presumed to be free. There is, therefore, no legal basis for slavery.
Works about Spooner:
832. Alexander, J. A. "The Ideas of Lysander Spooner." New England Quarterly 23 (June 1950): 200-17. A discussion that touches on Spooner's anarchism in reference to his economic principles and views on poverty.
833. Kline, W. G. The Individualist Anarchists. Boston & London: Univ. of America Pr., 1987. A discussion of the origins and development of the individualist anarchist tradition in America, in which Chapter Two is devoted to a discussion of the ideas of Spooner, pages 35-45.
834. Martin, J. J. Men against the State. Dekalb, 111.: Adrian Allen, 1953. A treatment of individualist anarchism in America which deals with Spooner in Chapter VII, "Lysander Spooner, Dissident Among Dissidents," pages 168-201. See entry 1838.
835. Rocker, R. Pioneers of American Freedom. Los Angeles: Rocker Pubns. Comm., 1949. A discussion of the origins of liberal and radical individualist thought in America with a consideration of the life and ideas of Spooner, pages 86-96.
MAX STIRNER (1806-1856)
Works by Stirner:
836. The Ego and His Own. New York: Libertarian Book Club, 1963. Translated Steven T. Byington. Edited and introduced by John Carroll. London: Jonathan Cape, 1971. Originally published 1845; translated 1907. The most controversial and extreme statement of egoistic anarchism. Stirner has been identified as a major precursor of political and philosophical movements of both the Left and the Right, although he did not seek to initiate such movements. He asserts an uncompromising rejection of all authority beyond the reach of the individual, arguing that Ego antecedes essence, and that each individual must pursue his or her own freedom with egoism as the only law. Not only the state, but society itself is condemned as a fetter on liberty. A union of egoists is the only possible social order.

841. Clark, J. P. Max Stirner's Egoism. London: Freedom Pr., 1976. A study of Stirner's thought from the perspective of social anarchism. Chapter 6 concentrates on Stirner and anarchism.
842. Ferguson, K. E. "Saint Max Revisited: A Reconsideration of Max Stirner." Idealistic Studies 12 (Sept. 1982): 276-92. Argues that many critics of Stirner have failed to deal adequately with the ontological and axiological questions raised by Stirner, particularly his radical view on moral choice and his process theory of the self. The latter, while failing to deal adequately with human sociability nevertheless usefully sets out a basis for the demystification of authority.
843. Feuerbach, L. "The Essence of Christianity in relation to The Ego And His Own." Philosophical Forum 8,2/3/4 (1978): 81-91. Translation of the German text in Feuerbach's Samtliche Werke, Vol. 7, edited by Wilhelm Bolin & Friedrich Jodl. Stuttgart-Bad: Cannstatt,1960.

845. Lobkowicz, N. "Karl Marx and Max Stirner." Boston College Studies in Philosophy 2 (1969): 64-95. A lengthy and complex article which suggests that Stirner's book The Ego and His Own played a significant role in prompting the first version of Marx's mature historical materialism in The German Ideology. Contains a summary of the contents of The Ego and His Own as well as expositions of the Hegelian and Marxian positions.
846. Marx, K. and Engels, F. The Holy Family: Or Critique of Critical Criticism, against Bruno Bauer and Company. Moscow: Progress Publishers, 1956. Though not dealing directly with Stirner, the work marks the formalizing of Marx's and Engel's dissatisfaction with the ideas and programmes of Bruno Bauer and other members of the Young Hegelian movement like Stirner.
847. Marx, K. and Engels, F. The German Ideology. Moscow: Progress Publishers, 1964. Marx and Engels' critique of German idealism, with a very long section devoted to Stirner. This work effectively completed their break with the Young Hegelian movement.

850. Sass, H. "Bruno Bauer's Critical Theory." Philosophical Forum 8 (1978): 92-120. Argues that Bauer's treatment of dialectics foreshadows the interpretations of modern critical theorists and demonstrates that Bauer exercised an important, but little appreciated, influence on Stirner.

852. Stepelevitch, L. S. "The First Hegelians: An Introduction." Philosophical Forum 8 (1978): 6-20. Offers an historical overview of the ideas of the Young Hegelians, including Stirner, in the period 1828-48 with the aim of establishing their claim to be legitimate Hegelians.
853. Stepelevitch, L. S. "Hegel and Stirner: Thesis and Antithesis." Idealistic Studies 6 (Summer 1976): 263-78. A comparison of Hegel's and Stirner's respective philosophies which aims to prove that Stirner's position became the antithesis of Hegel's.
854. Stepelevitch, L. S. "Max Stirner and Ludwig Feuerbach." Journal of the History of Ideas 39,3 (July-Sept. 1978): 451-63. Examines the relationships between Stirner and Feuerbach and argues that Feuerbach's career as a theorist came to an end when he was unable to refute Stirner's critique as presented in The Ego and His Own.
855. Stepelevitch, L. S. "The Revival of Max Stirner." Journal of the History of Ideas 35,2 (April-June 1974): 323-28. Suggests that the revival of interest in Stirner was concurrent with the revival of interest in the philosophy of Nietzsche. Nevertheless his thought has its own intrinsic value as a completely radical defense of atheism.
856. Thomas, P. "Karl Marx and Max Stirner." Political Theory 3,2 (May 1975): 159-79. Argues that Marx's critique of Stirner answers the key issues raised by Stirner regarding revolutionary ideals and individuality.

In their place the work argues for the organization of society on the foundation of freedom, natural association and mutual exchange. While advocating the establishment of banks on the basis of labor values, there is a constant opposition to what is described as state socialism.

859. Christianity and Patriotism. Translated by Constance Garnett. Introduction by Edward Garnett. London: J. Cape, 1922.

862. The Kingdom of God and the Peace Essays. London: Oxford Univ. Pr., 1951. Tolstoy's definitive statement of his pacifist anarchism, published in 1893, proceeds from a profoundly Christian perspective. He rejects any authority, be it of State or Church, which would coerce him to act against his Christian conscience, while, at the same time, refusing to respond violently to any such coercion.
863. The Law of Love and the Law of Violence. Translated by M. K. Tolstoy. Foreword by B. Budberg. London: Anthony Blond, 1970.

Note that Tolstoy's original title was The Law of Violence and the Law of Love.
864. Letters on War. Maldon, Essex: Free Age Pr., 1900. In this pamphlet of collected letters Tolstoy cites the causes of war as first the unequal distribution of property, second the existence of a military class, and third fraudulent religious teaching. He urges people to obey their consciences and God's will by refusing to fight and ceasing to oppress the weak.
865. My Confession. London: Bradde Bks., 1963. Originally published 1882. A short and sincere work which outlines the events leading to the deepening of Tolstoy's spiritual anxiety, the eventual crisis and his religious conversion.

867. On Socialism. London: Hogarth, 1936. Published Glasgow: Strickland Pr., 1940. In this critique of the aims of socialism Tolstoy attacks the idea of liberation through political rights, opposes centralization, planned social schemes and predicted outcomes, placing his faith instead in a change of consciousness regarding moral law. This was Tolstoy's last essay.
868. The Only Commandment. London: Unicorn Pr., 1962. In this late work of 1909 Tolstoy asserts that, as revealed in the Gospels, God is love and that God commands us to love one another. All other commandments derive from this simple law. Only the fulfillment of this commandment can afford us complete happiness.
869. Resurrection. Moscow: Foreign Languages Pub. Hse., 1958. Originally published in 1899 this was Tolstoy's last great novel.

It makes sweeping indictments of the Church and government and sets out the basic elements of his pacifist/anarchist position.
870. The Russian Revolution etc.. Translated by Aylmer Maude and others. London: Everett & Co., 1907. A collection of pieces by Tolstoy on the theme of Russia and revolution. Contains "The Meaning of the Russian Revolution," "An Appeal to Russians" and "What's To Be Done?" Expresses a confidence in change in Russia but also a concern that the revolutionary movements show only a dim recognition of the unreasonableness of violence.

871. The Slavery of Our Times. Translated with introduction by Aylmer Maude. New York: Edwin C. Walker, 1900.

872. Social Evils and Their Rented]/. Edited by Helen C. Matheson. London: Methuen, 1915. A collection of essays in which Tolstoy spells out more clearly than elsewhere his political position on a number of topics. The need to liberate land from property holders and to end the factory system is discussed. Government and centralized socialism are attacked and, in a discussion of anarchism, Tolstoy asserts that the anarchists are "right in everything" except their ideas on revolution. There are interesting excerpts from Tolstoy's letters and diaries which comment on sexual relations.

877. What I Believe. Also called My Religion. London: Allen & Unwin, 1966. Originally published in 1884 the work outlines why he regards as erroneous the doctrine of the Christian Church, arguing that the failure to acknowledge the law of non-resistance to evil is the ultimate perversion of the teaching of Christ. Although suppressed by Russian censorship, the manuscript was circulated both in Russia and abroad and brought an enormous response. It was largely as a result of the fresh insights which the ensuing correspondence gave him that he wrote The Kingdom of God is within You, op.cit., entry 862.
878. What Is Art? Translated by Aylmer Maude. London: Oxford Univ. Pr., 1946. Tolstoy's critique of contemporary art of 1898 based on his 'new' religious and moral convictions. Concludes that art infects people with the worst feelings of superstition, patriotism and sensualism.
879. What then Must We Do? Translated by Aylmer Maude. London: Oxford Univ. Pr., 1942. Published in 1886, it was written as a result of Tolstoy's experience with the poor in Moscow.

881. Archambault, R. D. "Tolstoy on Education." Midway 8,1 (1967): 57-68.

Concludes that Tolstoy might be seen as a precursor of A.S. Neill.
882. Archer, D. J. "Tolstoy's God Sees the Truth, but Waits: A Reflection." Religious Studies 21,1 (March 1985): 75-89. Maintains that, despite what Tolstoy says in his Confession about when his soul-searching began, he had in fact, some years earlier, questioned the meaning of life and suggested how an answer might be worked out at an individual level in God Sees the Truth, but Waits, the story written as part of a Primer for peasant children in preparation during the years 1871-72.

884. Berlin, I. The Hedgehog and the Fox. New York: Mentor, 1957. Basing his argument on Tolstoy's philosophy of history in War and Peace, Berlin analyzes the conflict between what Tolstoy was and what he believed. With respect to the line from the ancient Greek poem "The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing," Berlin concludes that Tolstoy was by nature a fox who believed in being a hedgehog.

885. Berlin, I. "Tolstoy and Enlightenment." In Russian Thinkers, 238-60. Op.cit, entry 1317.

Thus, reliance on intuitive innocence and goodness and the contrast between nature and artifice are central themes in Tolstoy's work.

958. Equitable Commerce: A New Development of Principles as Substitutes for Laws and Governments, for the Harmonious Adjustment and Regulation of the Pecuniary, Intellectual, and Moral Intercourse of Mankind, Proposed as Elements of New Society. New York: Burt Franklin Reprint, 1967. Originally published New York: Fowlers & Wells, 1852, although a version appeared in 1846, Warren's classic work on individualist anarchism that attempts to design a society aimed at producing individual freedom, coincidence of interests and the proper, legitimate and just reward of labor. Ideally cost should be the limit of price and exchange should be based on labor inputs. Two excerpts, "The Pattern of Life in an Individualist Anarchist Community," and "Equitable Education" appear in Patterns of Anarchy, 312-23, 445-8. Op.cit., entry 1436.
959. True Civilization an Immediate Necessity and the Fast Ground of Hope for Mankind etc. New York: Burt Franklin Reprint, 1967. Originally published Boston, Mass.: Warren, 1863. Written against the background of the Civil War, this is a defense of individualism and liberty and an attack on the unjust treatment of labor that is held responsible for existing problems in society. Only an equitable exchange of products on the basis of their labor value, it is asserted, will solve these problems, allowing cooperation on the basis of individual sovereignty.
