The floodgates holding back Anarchism are constantly under strain. In confrontation with opposing liberal, totalitarian and conservative camps, Anarchism is often seen as a destructive force. But this is not necessarily so. Stuart Christie and Albert Meltzer defy the assumption that anarchism is a nihilistic force, arguing that whilst the absence of government may be alarming for those living within a democratic political system, the reality of the limitations that governments impress upon the people is equally worrying.
Stuart Christie is an activist for anarchism andthe author of "Granny Made Me an Anarchist: General Franco, the Angry Brigade and Me" and "We, the Anarchists!: A Study of the Iberian Anarchist Federation (FAI) 19271937." Albert Meltzer is an activist for anarchismand the author of several books, including "Anarchism: Arguments For and Against.""
