HASH(0x996f3330) out of 5 stars It's Proudhon, what else can one say? Aug. 25 2011
By Miguel C. - Published on
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.

HASH(0x996ec1e0) out of 5 stars Politically superseded by Marx July 16 2016
By Shaun May - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's OK for historiographical and reference purposes. But politically it was superseded with Marx's 'Poverty of Philosophy'. Better to read the latter which stands as the best critique of Proudhon to date. Also see his letter to P.V. Annenkov on December 28, 1846 which prefigures the said text published in 1847.

HASH(0x996ec30c) out of 5 stars stinging and penetrating analysis Feb. 13 2016

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A classic, fresh and penetrating piece of work. It's worth having a copy in one's own library or collection of literature.
