Editorial Reviews


For far too long Elisee Reclus has stood in the shadow of Godwin, Proudhon, Bakunin, Kropotkin and Emma Goldman. Now John Clark as pulled Reclus forward to stand shoulder to shoulder with Anarchism's cynosures. Reclus' light brought into anarchism's compass not only a focus on ecology, but a struggle against both patriarchy and racism, contributions which can now be fully appreciated thanks to John Clark's exegesis and translations of works previously unavailable in English. No serious reader can afford to neglect this book. (Dana Ward, Pitzer College, Political Studies)

Clark and Martin have opened the door, through their deep introduction and selected reprints, to one of the great thinkers of 19th century anarchist thought. (Anarchy)

Maintaining an appropriately scholarly style, marked by deep background knowledge, nuanced argument, and careful qualifications, Clark and Martin nevertheless reveal a passionate love for their subject and adopt a stance of political engagement that they hope does justice to Reclus' own commitments. (Historical Geography)

Finally! A century after his death, the great French geographer and anarchist Elisée Reclus has been honored by a vibrant selection of his writings expertly translated into English. (Kent Mathewson, Louisiana State University)
