Anarchist Seeds Beneath the Snow
Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses the pacifist sentiment that manifested in Britain during the interwar years. Socio-political pacifism is considered as a major recruiting ground for anarchism, a pure pacifism being perceived as inadequate and war inextricably linked to the State, government, authority and hierarchy. The chapter examines well-known anarchist writers who later became pacifists. One example is Herbert Read, who eventually became an advocate of Gandhian non-violence.

Keywords:   pacifist, pacifism, anarchism, socio-political pacifism, war, Herbert Read, Gandhian non-violence
