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

New Proudhon Anthology Forthcoming

Iain McKay, principal author of An Anarchist FAQ, has edited a new Proudhon Reader to be published by AK Press later this year.

This is the first serious attempt at a Proudhon anthology since Stewart's Selected Writings, and far superior in both organization and extent. Unlike Stewart's selections, McKay's are organized according to work and excerpted at length, functioning more like a collection of abridged texts as opposed to Stewart's approach of organizing snippets into a sort of anarchistic Bartlett's Familiar Quotations. The generous range of materials includes a lot of newly translated stuff, some of it by Shawn Wilbur of Corvus Editions.

The table of contents can be found here, and an extended introduction here.
