The ecology of freedom : the emergence and dissolution of hierarchy by Murray Bookchin( Book )

42 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using a synthesis of ecology, anthropology, philosophy and political theory, this book traces our society's conflicting legacies of freedom and domination, from the first emergence of human culture to today's global capitalism. The theme of Murray Bookchin's grand historical narrative is straightforward: environmental, economic and political devastation are born at the moment that human societies begin to organize themselves hierarchically. And, despite the nuance and detail of his arguments, the lesson to be learned is just as basic: our nightmare will continue until hierarchy is dissolved and human beings develop more sane, sustainable and egalitarian social structures." "The Ecology of Freedom is indispensable reading for anyone who's tired of living in a world where everything, and everyone, is an exploitable resource. It includes a brand new preface by the author."--BOOK JACKET
The Spanish anarchists : the heroic years, 1868-1936 by Murray Bookchin( Book )

47 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A long-awaited new edition of this seminal history of Spanish Anarchism. Hailed as a masterpiece, it includes a new prefatory essay by the author. This popular, well-researched book opens with the Italian Anarchist Fanelli's stirring visit to Spain in 1868 and traces the movement's checkered but steady growth for the next 70 years. Intimate portraits are vividly juxtaposed with striking descriptions of events: peasant revolts, labor unrest, the saintly Fermin Saivochea, official repression, the terrorists and the evolution of exciting organizational forms. Bookchin weaves his way geographically through the whole of Spain, revealing the shadings and subtleties of each small section. From the peasants of Andalusia to the factory workers of Barcelona, the Spanish people - and their exuberant belief in and struggles for freedom and self-determination - come alive."--Jacket
Remaking society : pathways to a green future by Murray Bookchin( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Post-scarcity anarchism by Murray Bookchin( Book )

54 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this series of related essays, Murray Bookchin balances his ecological and anarchist vision with the promising opportunities of a 'post-scarcity' era. Surpassing the constraints of Marxist political economy--which was rooted in an era of material scarcity and could not forsee the sweeping changes ahead--Bookchin argues that the tools necessary for the self-administration of a complex, industrial societyhave already been developed and have greatly altered our revolutionary landscape. Technological advances were made during the 20th century which expanded production greatly, but in the pursuit of corporate profit and at the expense of human need, workers' control and ecological sustainability. Through direct control on industry, and by incorporating an ecological and utopian vision for society, the working class can now dispell the myth that the state, hierarchical social relations and political parties (vanguards) are necessary to their struggle for freedom. Bookchin's analysis, rooted in the realities of contemporary society, remains refreshingly pragmatic."--Jacket

The next revolution : popular assemblies and the promise of direct democracy by Murray Bookchin( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and German and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many similarities exist between the new movements against austerity that have emerged since 2011, ranging from Taksim Square in Turkey to the Chilean student protests, and from Greece to NYC. One of them is their return to the principles of direct democracy and their organization around popular assemblies. These ideas are hardly new - Murray Bookchin, who is one of the leading anarchist thinkers of the twentieth century, has been elaborating ideas about popular assemblies for several decades that have influenced thinkers such as David Harvey. The Next Revolution brings together Bookchin's writings on popular assemblies for the first time, just as his ideas are rekindling the radical imagination worldwide."
