Anarchism & Sexuality aims to bring the rich and diverse traditions of anarchist thought and practice into contact with contemporary questions about the politics and lived experience of sexuality. Both in style and in content, it is conceived as a book that aims to question, subvert and overflow authoritarian divisions between the personal and political; between sexual desires categorised as heterosexual or homosexual; between seemingly mutually exclusive activism and scholarship; between forms of expression such as poetry and prose; and between disciplinary categories of knowledge. Anarchism & Sexuality seeks to achieve this by suggesting connections between ethics, relationships and power, three themes that run throughout. The key objectives of the book are: to bring fresh anarchist perspectives to debates around sexuality; to make a queer and feminist intervention within the most recent wave of anarchist scholarship; and to make a queerly anarchist contribution to social justice literature, policy and practice. By mingling prose and poetry, theory and autobiography, it constitutes a gathering place to explore the interplay between sexual and social transformation.This book will be of use to those interested in anarchist movements, cultural studies, critical legal theory, gender studies, and queer and sexuality studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I feel in reading some of these pieces that the participants have invested a lot of themselves in their contributions. There is an immediacy and liveliness in a lot of these pages. The personal investment on the part of the authors helps make it so that there is much to relate to in Anarchism and Sexuality, on both an intellectual level and an emotional level."
Michael Larson, M.A. Instructor at Point Park University, Pittsburgh, writing for Metapsychology

"This is the book I have been waiting for-the book I want to give my students, share with friends, and draw from in my own work. It makes me grateful for my training in feminist theory, and ever more committed to using anarchy as a basis for sexual politics."
Breanne Fahs, Ph.D., Arizona State University

"Anarchism & Sexuality is a brave and rewarding contribution to the field of inquiry of sexuality and emotions." Elena Lindholm Narvaez (2011): A Post-anarchist Momentum, NORA - Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, DOI:10.1080/08038740.2011.646446
