Ron Sakolsky is a rare anarchist for a variety of reasons, including his longevity, his intellectual pursuits (especially challenging academia), and his embrace of art and the surrealists.
Creating Anarchy is a collection of his writings (and art pieces by some surrealist friends), reflecting his interests and thinking over the past couple of decades. This new edition includes more recent pieces (including the particularly relevant “My Life in the Academic Gulag”, in which he discusses how and if one can maintain anarchist positions within the academy) and a new introduction.

The writings of Renzo Novatore are an emotional cavalcade of egoism, nihilism, and hatred for democratic mediocrity. To life!
Renzo Novatore is the pen-name of Abele Rizieri Ferrari who was born in Arcola, Italy (a village of La Spezia) on May 12, 1890 to a poor peasant family. Unwilling to adapt to scholastic discipline, he only attended a few months of the first grade of grammar school and then left school forever. Though his father forced him to work on the farm, his strong will and thirst for knowledge led him to become a self-taught poet and philosopher. Exploring these matters outside the limits imposed by the educational system, as a youth he read Stirner, Nietzsche, Wilde, Ibsen, Baudelaire, Schopenauer, and many others with a critical mind.
Renzo died on November 22 (1922), at the hands of the cops.
We are very excited to present this collection of all of the known writings of Renzo Novatore, newly translated by Wolfi Landstreicher. It contains the fiery polemics, poetry, and willful play that readers of “Toward the Creative Nothing” are already familiar with.

Introductions to anarchist ideas, up till now, have suffered from being one-dimensional, too lengthy, or too sectarian. The history, practice, and philosophy of anarchy has suffered for this lack. We haven’t encouraged new generations to approach our ideas other than on mostly sectarian terms.
Anarchy 101 is an edited crowd-sourced introduction to anarchist ideas. The content comes from the website http://anarchy101.org and represents the best responses from dozens of contributors to hundreds of questions about the Beautiful Idea: this thing called anarchy.
