This book analyzes the ideas of Herbert Read, Colin Ward, and Alex Comfort to highlight the role of anarchism in contemporary political thought and movements. "A British Anarchist Tradition" focuses on three contemporary British theorists and practitioners, Herbert Read, Colin Ward, and Alex Comfort and looks at their interrelation, commonality, and collective influence on British radical thought. The book aims to foster a greater understanding of anarchism as an intellectual response to 20th century developments and its impact on political thought and movements. For the first time, the work of these three writers is presented as a tradition, highlighting the consistency of their themes and concerns.
