a journal of anarchist ideas

Anarchy was an anarch­ist monthly magazine pro­duced in London from March 1961 until December 1970. Art­icles are re­printed with the kind per­mis­sion of the copy­right holder, Freedom Press. Art­icles listed below in bold­face contain tran­scribed art­icles. The rest are pending tran­scrip­tion.

Complete issues[edit]

In addi­tion to the full issues avail­able on this site, a major­ity of Anarchy issues have been scanned and up­loaded to the Inter­net Archive (IA), (LC), and The Sparrows’ Nest (SN). Links to these issues are pro­vided with the full list of issues.

My purpose here is to fill in the gaps wherever pos­sible with art­icles fully tran­scribed by hand using wiki for­matting. This is done to pre­serve the look and spirit of the ori­ginal magazine, but in a form that is easier to read, search, copy, and view on a smart­phone. Clicking an author’s name reveals a list of all the author’s con­tribu­tions to Anarchy, while subject cat­egor­ies dis­played at the bottom of each article will show avail­able art­icles on the same topic. Hyper­links in the body of each article are pro­vided to give context to the places, people, insti­tu­tions, events, and cita­tions refer­enced therein. These aren’t sub­sti­tutes for your own research, but can be helpful espe­cially to the twenty-first-century reader un­famil­iar with the termin­ology and cul­tural touch­stones assumed by the authors to be already famil­iar to their con­tempor­aries.
