Nicolas Walter

Nicolas Walter


Nicolas Walter (1934-2000) was one of the best-known and most widely read anarchist writers of the last half century. His About Anarchism has been translated into many languages, including Russian, Serbo-Croat, Greek, Turkish, Chinese and Japanese, and his immense output was otherwise overwhelmingly journalism for the libertarian press. The present updated edition of About Anarchism together with the collection Damned Fools in Utopia (PM, 2011) enable readers today to appreciate his range, erudition, and readability.

“A clear and incisive introduction to the subject.”
New York Times

“Walter’s anarchism incorporates a wealth of influences and the best of both old and new anarchism. Almost every paragraph in this book contains examples of his subversive thinking, and many of his observations push contemporary anarchists to think harder about the nature of politics.”
—Andrej Grubačić, coauthor of Living at the Edges of Capitalism: Adventures in Exile and Mutual Aid

“Nicolas Walter was a writer and lecturer of deep secular humanist and anarchist convictions—his book About Anarchism is known round the world.”
Guardian

“Nicolas Walter was one of the most interesting left intellectuals of the second half of the twentieth century in Britain.”
—Professor Richard Taylor, University of Cambridge

“A wonderful short work which gives a clear and straightforward exposition of anarchism. It greatly influenced me when it first came out and is as relevant and timely as it was half a century ago, if not more so. A perfect introduction.” 
—Peter Marshall, author of Demanding the Impossible: A History of Anarchism
