A search through the literature of anarchism indicates the absence of another bibliography on the subject that can compare with this splendid work. The scope, completeness, attention to detail, and insightful annotations reflect the compiler's superb research skills. The bibliography is organized for efficient use with a major section on works by and about anarchist philosophers and thinkers. Other sections are titled On the Margins of Anarchist Theory and On the Margins of Liberal Theory. The Anarchist Experience treats historical movements that have taken place in 18 countries. Shorter chapters on theses and on contemporary and historical anarchist journals add significantly to the range of presentations. Evident throughout the work is a balance between anarchist movements and the theory behind them. Nursey-Bray succeeds in allowing users of this bibliography to identify the literature that focuses on the nature and development of anarchism as a tradition of political thought. Recommended for general and academic libraries.
This is a useful bibliography for major research libraries.
