Book Description

April 12 2011

"An indispensable source book for anyone interested in Proudhon's ideas and the origins of the socialist and anarchist movements in nineteenth-century Europe."—Robert Graham, editor of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas

"Iain McKay's introduction offers a sure-footed guide through the misconceptions surrounding Proudhon's thought."—Mark Leier, author of Bakunin: The Creative Passion

More influential than Karl Marx during his lifetime, Pierre-Joseph Proudon's work has long been out of print or unavailable in English. Iain McKay's comprehensive collection is a much-needed and timely historical corrective.

Iain McKay is the editor of An Anarchist FAQ.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Proudhon, what else can one say? Aug. 25 2011
By Miguel C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was a great pleasure to read McKay's translation of Proudhon's famous/devastating treatise on Property, "What Is Property?". He includes large segments that Benjamin Tucker omitted from his own translation for whatever reason (I'd rather not speculate) and which, in many areas, give Proudhon a very different tone. This alone is worth the price, but he also includes Proudhon's economic critique of capitalism (in which you'll find many ideas that were later developed by Marx), "System of Economic Contradictions", along with other works, letters and some useful commentary. All in all, fantastic anthology.
