A Living Revolution: Anarchism in the Kibbutz Movement
AK Press, 2009 - 168 pages
In A Living Revolution, James Horrox explores the foundations of the kibbutz movement, providing a detailed look at its early economic, social, and political organization. Based on newly translated letters, diaries, and essays by key figures, A Living Revolution uncovers a deep, explicitly anarchist strain running through the movement. This book illuminates a neglected aspect of Jewish history, taking serious issue with Marxists and other historians who see the kibbutzim primarily as progenitors of the Israeli State. It depicts anarchism as both an inspiring utopian ideology and a viable social practice.
James Horrox is a regular contributor to London's Freedom newspaper and numerous alternative publications.
