Literary Nonfiction. Politics. Anarchism. An accessible discussion of the revolutionary mode of thought that rejects all forms of domination and seeks, in the words of Louise Michel, "order through harmony." Francis Dupuis-Déri, a professor of political science and an anarchist, reveals through dialogue with his father the humanistic and peaceful roots of anarchism. The discussion moves beyond the caricature of anarchists as proponents of chaos and violence, showing it as a movement based on equality, co-operation, and autonomy.
Francis Dupuis-Déri teaches political science at Université du Québec à Montréal and is the author of numerous books and articles about anarchism, including Who's Afraid of the Black Blocs? Anarchy in Action Around the World (Between the Lines/PM Press, 2013). His father Thomas Déri is a former publisher, an editor and translator, co-founder of the Librairie du Québec bookstore in Paris, and former director of the Salon du livre book fair in Montréal.Author City: Montreal, QC CAN
