Based on award-winning research, Love and revolution brings classical and contemporary anarchist thought into a mutually beneficial dialogue with a global cross-section of ecological, anti-capitalist, feminist and anti-racist activists – discussing real-life examples of the loving-caring relations that underpin many contemporary struggles. Such a (r)evolutionary love is discovered to be a common embodied experience among the activists contributing to this collective vision, manifested as a radical solidarity, as political direct action, as long-term processes of struggle, and as a deeply relational more-than-human ethics. This book provides an essential resource for all those interested in building a free society grounded in solidarity and care, and offers a timely contribution to contemporary movement discourse.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘This book is a gift of love and a tool for freedom. Matt York powerfully, and accessibly, shows us that love is a political and theoretical basis upon which a truly free and (r)evolutionary society must be, and in some places already is being, created.'Marina Sitrin, Associate Professor of Sociology, SUNY Binghamton, author of Horizontalism and Everyday Revolutions‘I recommend that anyone who is serious about striving for social change read Matt York’s spot-on book and consider embracing its philosophy of a permanent revolution of love and community. This book reflects the core values that have guided my half century of organising for liberation.'Keith McHenry, co-founder of the global Food Not Bombs movement, author of The Anarchist Cookbook and Hungry for Peace‘In Love and revolution, Matt York develops a theory of love grounded in activist practices from real movements for social and political change. This book is essential reading for anyone holding on to hope for the commons in a world of privatisation.'Richard Gilman-Opalsky, Professor of Political Theory and Philosophy, University of Illinois, author of The Communism of Love - .
