    1. Horowitz was a most eminent sociologist. In this edited volume, he pulls together short excerpts from a variety of anarchist thinkers. His perspective (Page 12): ". . own view is that anarchism. . . an effort to fashion a radical alternative to the Marxist tradition in its orthodox forms."The book itself traverses a lengthy period of time and a variety of subjects. The book is organized around several sections, each featuring relevant selections by anarchist thinkers. Section 1 focuses on anar [...]
