Painting a vivid picture of 1960s counterculture ideas, this new collection of the late Paul Goodman's essential anarchist writings—from utopian essays to practical proposals—reveals how he inspired the dissident youth of the era and profoundly influenced movement theory and practice. Long out-of-print, these provocative, insightful, and incisive pieces analyze citizenship and civil disobedience, decentralization and the organized system—all while still mindful of the long anarchist tradition and of the Jeffersonian democracy that resonated strongly in Goodman's own political thought. A potent antidote to U.S. global imperialism and domestic anomie, this collection also includes a new introduction by Goodman's friend and literary executor, Taylor Stoehr, who explains why these nine core texts will thoroughly explicate anarchism for future generations.

Paul Goodman is the author of Decentralizing Power and the bestselling Growing Up Absurd. He set the agenda for the youth movement of the 1960s and lectured on subjects ranging from politics, education, and community planning to psychotherapy, religion, and literature.

Editorial Reviews

"Editor Taylor Stoehr relates how he found in Goodman a man who had found 'another way to live,' a man whose refusal to conform could shock a young mind back into its best instincts."  —Bookforum
