Colin Ward: Life, Times and Thought

Synopsis

Colin Ward was one of the most significant thinkers and activists of the British anarchist movement in the twentieth century. He was a prolific journalist and has a continuing influence on political thought, most notably through his works on urban life, housing, squatters, children and criminology.

This volume brings together a range of contributors to discuss Ward’s life and works. Issues discussed include: his contribution to the resurgence of anarchist journalism through War Commentary and Freedom; his impact on other activists; the relationship between his form of anarchism and the evolving New Left; how Ward’s ‘practical anarchism’ was influenced by the works of Peter Kropotkin; Ward’s Englishness; the contributions he made to British social policy in the post-war period; and his endorsement of the seemingly incompatible movements of social anarchism and lifestyle anarchism.
