Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2016
"Two Cheers for Anarchism" is a thoughtful book of loosely-connected essays on a common theme: namely, that big hierarchical institutions invariably end up warping human values and diminishing human beings. Whether the institution is a public agency, a school, a big capitalist firm, the military, a centrally planned economy, or whatever, if it is run like a dictatorship, then it will produce cautious, deferential conformists, who will exercise autonomy, if at all, mainly through acts of quiet sabotage. The book ranges widely -- topics include city planning, military desertion, shirking, the petite bourgeoisie, and the SAT -- and the discussion is lively and well-informed. All small-"a" anarchists will enjoy it.
