Living Anarchy: An Anarchist Notebook

This collection brings together a variety of writings (~1998-2003) from a longtime anarchist. Topics covered include perspective on anarchist theory, participant accounts of direct actions and anarchist projects as well as writings on literature, marriage, state repression and borders.

[Note from Jeff... This is a collection prepared for the FREE PRESS art exhibit and, although it shares a similar title as my 2009 book "Living Anarchy: Theory and Practice in Anarchist Movements", only a couple of the chapters are similar.]
