This original and impressively researched book explores the concept of anarchy-"unimposed order"-as the most humane and stable form of order in a chaotic world. Mohammed A. Bamyeh traces the historical foundations of anarchy and convincingly presents it as an alternative to both tyranny and democracy. He shows how anarchy is the best manifestation of civic order, of a healthy civil society, and of humanity's noblest attributes. A cogent and compelling critique of the modern state, this provocative book clarifies how anarchy may be both a guide for rational social order and a science of humanity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] serious and considered effort to engage the profoundly difficult task of imagining a society based on unimposed order, while we remain necessarily locked within the analytical and conceptual limitations that reflect our everyday experiences with a society based on imposed order. * Contemporary Sociology *
The principle audiences for Anarchy as Order are sociologists who want to know more about anarchism and anarchists who seek sociological interpretation of their philosophy. * Societies Without Borders *
Civil society has been at the forefront of global thinking for a generation, and more recently conceptions of anarchy have gained attention. These two conceptual frameworks are linked by a notion of social self-regulation, yet too few theorists have helped us understand the connection. In a book that should have many readers, Mohammed Bamyeh brings this connection out in a thoughtful, clear, and timely way. -- Craig Calhoun, president, Social Science Research Council; professor of sociology and history, New York University
