The Athenian anarchist and anti-authoritarian milieu's public protests and battles against the Greek state, police and other capitalist institutions are prolific and highly visible. Away from the intensity of the street-protests and the glare of mainstream media, however, its militants implement anarchist practices whose outcomes are less visible. They are feeding the hungry and poor, protecting migrants from fascist beatings and trying to carve out an autonomous political, social and cultural space. Activists within this movement share politics centred on hostility to the capitalist state and all forms of domination, hierarchy and discrimination. Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork amongst Athenian anarchists and anti-authoritarians, Anarchy in Athens unravels the internal complexities within this milieu and provides a better understanding of the forces that give the space its shape.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Lucid, sophisticated and suggestive ... this book will certainly speak to the many activist researchers who today are vitally interested in the construction of commoning activities, new forms of anti-capitalist strategies, and the new relationship between local and global struggles.'- Andrej Grubacic, Director and founder of the Anthropology and Social Change department at the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco - .
