We’ve had a letter from one of our readers who enjoyed Alexander Berkman’s What is Anarchism? (“the best all-round book on anarchism I have ever read”) But, besides giving it a more lively cover, in black and red, he has this suggestion for updating it:
“A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since What is Anarchism? was written in 1926. It is a powerful book – to make it more powerful up to the present day what it needs is a final note and a last word at the end… of four or five pages long, or more, to update the changes in Capitalism since then. Where … people from the different anarchist organizations (maybe 6 to 8 people) sit around a table and agree what to put in this epilogue.” Any takers?
