Anarchism, or left libertarianism, is a political ideology that advocated the abolition of the State and parliamentarianism. It is considered a type of socialism, but closely related to liberal thought because of its liberal traditions and a strong radical liberalism. Anarchism flourished in countries such as France, Russia, Spain, and Italy. This book examines anarchism as a social movement and explores the reasons why it failed to flourish in Britain. It discusses libertarian communists or socialists individuals who represent a full spectrum of anarchist diversity, from the individualism of John Cowper Powys to the near syndicalism of Christopher Pallis.

Keywords:   anarchism, left libertarianism, State, parliamentarianism, radical liberalism, John Cowper Powys, Christopher Pallis, libertarian communists, socialists
