Organizing Anarchy details the remarkable growth and diversity of anarchist organizational practice in a range of spheres of activity, from community centers to online activism to labor and workplace militancy, over the first decades of the twenty-first century. These projects involve innovative approaches by which anarchists resist current forms of exploitation and oppression while building anarchist relations for the future post-capitalist world in the present. Through direct action and solidarity they make anarchism manifest today, rather than encountering it as a distant goal.

Organizing Anarchy critically examines the possibilities and problems facing these anarchists who seek to pose effective challenges to capitalist forms of exploitation and domination. The work also engages theoretical developments around their emerging political practices, particularly the social movement theories that tend to downplay, overlook, or misunderstand anarchist movements and forms of organizing.
