In association with the U.K. Anarchist Studies Network, the North American
Anarchist Studies Network, and AK Press

This new book series, the first peer-reviewed English-language series in
anarchist studies by a major international academic publisher, seeks to
promote the study of anarchism as a framework for understanding and acting
on the most pressing problems of our times. To this end, we invite proposals
for original manuscripts that exemplify cutting edge, socially engaged
scholarship bridging theory and practice, academic rigour and the insights
of contemporary activism.

We welcome book proposals on a wide variety of subjects including, but not
limited to the following: anarchist history and theory broadly construed;
individual anarchist thinkers; anarchist-informed analysis of current issues
and institutions; and anarchist or anarchist-inspired movements and
practices. Proposals informed by anti-capitalist, feminist, ecological,
indigenous, and non-Western or global South anarchist perspectives are
particularly welcome. So, too, are projects that promise to illuminate the
relationships between the personal and the political aspects of
transformative social change, local and global problems, and anarchism and
other movements and ideologies. Above all, we wish to publish books that
will help activist scholars and scholar activists think about how to
challenge and build real alternatives to existing structures of oppression
and injustice.

All proposals will be evaluated strictly according to their individual
merits and compatibility with the aims of the series. In accord with this
policy, we welcome proposals from independent scholars and new authors as
well as from those with an institutional affiliation and publishing record.
Titles accepted for publication in the series will be supported by an
engaged and careful peer review process, including impartial assessments by
members of an international editorial advisory board consisting of leading
scholars in the field.*

All books published in the series will be publicised widely and distributed
internationally via co-operative arrangements among a prominent network of
independent academic, activist, and publishing organisations, including
Continuum Books, AK Press, the U.K. Anarchist Studies Network, the North
American Anarchist Studies Network, and a range of other professional and
activist groups and their associated websites and listservs. The general
format of the series will be simultaneous hardback and paperback
publication, with the latter priced affordably so as to reach as wide an
audience as possible. All of the titles in the series will be published
under a Creative Commons License ('copyleft'). This distinctive feature of
the series ensures that permission for non-commercial reproduction of the
books will be granted by the publishers free of charge to voluntary,
campaign and community groups.

We are currently seeking book proposals that fit the description above.
Please send proposals to one or more of the Book Series Editors: Laurence
Davis (ldavis@xxxxxxxxxxxxx), Alex Prichard (a.prichard@xxxxxxxxxxxxx),
Nathan Jun (nathan.jun@xxxxxxxx), and Uri Gordon (uri@xxxxxxxxxx). Proposal
guidelines may be downloaded from the Continuum website:
