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

Property is Theft!, the first definitive Proudhon anthology in decades, is now available for sale. Here's the blurb I wrote for it:

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.

As tempting as the pre-order price may be, I would feel a lot happier about all of my unpaid translation efforts for the anthology if folks would order it from direct from AK when it is available, or from a radical and/or independent bookstore.

I like this too much as Free Market Anti Capitalism. It described about the property is theft.

This is the official blog of SLM News. It tells regarding the Freedom, Property, and Hans Hermann Hoppe.

Got an ISBN for it? I'd like to add it to my "to read" list on Good Reads.
