Direct Action: An Ethnograhy (David Graeber)
David Graeber has been right in the middle of the action at Wall Street, and doing some excellent writing about movement and strategy. This book, which Graeber wrote as a “participant-observer” in the Quebec City protests of 2011, serves as a window into the social movement cultures, models, and processes that are now very much in the public eye.
Revolt and Crisis in Greece: Between a Present Yet to Pass and a Future Still to Come (Edited by Antonis Vradis & Dimitris Dalakoglou)
Let’s learn from Greece’s experiences, history, and theory, and make this a true worldwide movement. This book allows us to compare and contrast our specific political and economic situations with the ones in Greece, and draw conclusions applicable to our own “antagonist” movement.
The Conquest of Bread (Peter Kropotkin)
What Kropotkin lays out here is his idea of the most rational, equitable way of meeting human needs—call him utopian, we call him a visionary. In any case, at a time when a small minority of individuals controls the vast majority of wealth and resources, we can all probably learn something from this anarchist classic.
Black Flame: The Revolutionary Class Politics of Anarchism and Syndicalism, CounterPower Vol. 1 (Michael Schmidt & Lucien van der Walt)
This book looks at class struggle anarchism and its impact on popular struggles worldwide over the last 150 years. Might be a valuable resource for anyone looking to dig a little deeper into the class politics inherent in the #Occupy movement, and anyone thinking about how anarchist theory and praxis fits in.
