Call for Review Essays: Perspectives on Anarchist Theory

Call for Review Essays: Perspectives on Anarchist Theory
The Institute for Anarchist Studies

The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) is interested in receiving high quality comparative book review essays for upcoming issues of its biannual journal, Perspectives on Anarchist Theory. Perspectives reviews must be focused on a common single issue, topic, or theme. Each review must treat at least two books and one must have been published in the previous two years. In some cases, reviews of works in other media (such as a film) will be accepted. Reviews of two books should be between 2,500 to 3,000 words and reviews of three should be 3,500 to 4,000 words. The books selected for review may be from any discipline, provided that they deal with subjects related to anarchism. Review essays should examine the failings and virtues of books for a contemporary anarchist theory and politics. Anarchism is understood here as a doctrine seeking the abolition of capitalism, the nation-state, and hierarchy generally, and the creation of a society based on mutual aid, direct democracy, autonomy and freedom. We are also interested in reviews of cross-disciplinary or theoretical works that may be of interest to anarchists activists and scholars.
