Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism
To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

Property is Theft
From Iain McKay, principal author of the standard anarchist educational resource An Anarchist FAQ, comes Property is Theft! A Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Anthology. Besides replacing Stewart Edwards' Selected Writings as the definitive Proudhon reader after several decades, it is clearly superior to Edwards' collection. First, instead of Edwards' unsatisfactory approach of compiling snippets of text under subject headings in a sort of Bartlett's Quotations format, McKay's anthology provides complete digests of Proudhon's texts with important passages in unbroken form. Second, this collection includes a wide variety of new texts, many of them translated especially for the present effort. This new anthology may well serve as the definitive reference source for as long as Selected Writings did. This should be cause for excitement and eager anticipation among Proudhon enthusiasts everywhere.
As Shawn Wilbur suggests in the comments, you can order it from AK Press when it's actually released instead of pre-ordering from Amazon, if you want to starve the beast.
