It seems interesting so far, but dense, and also quite male-centred, the latter of which I don't like. Maybe it will get better.

I have been liking reading academic texts because they tend to be focused on explaining phenomena rather than necessarily bringing them about; in this case, anarchy. And honestly, if they are at all worth reading. Practical knowledge arises from familiarity; you can read a whole book about controlling something, or what should be, while knowing close to nothing at the end, but a book full of simple descriptions can hardly be read without inviting a plethora of ideas.

Most of anarchism seems focused on ethical or practical arguments, which is understandable seeing as to real anarchy's paucity of representation. It is inevitable, I think, as anarchy is somewhat antithetical to the concept of the public, and global communications--but not necessarily desirable.
