New Book: Anarchy!

Anarchy and Legal OrderToday is the anniversary of the shooting of President William McKinley by Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz said he had been inspired to do something heroic for the cause of anarchism. Over a hundred years later is there still a case to be made for anarchy?

The new book Anarchy and Legal Order: Law and Politics for a Stateless Society by Gary Chartier elaborates and defends the idea of law without the state. The author seeks to explain why the state is illegitimate, dangerous, and unnecessary. He then proposes an understanding of how law enforcement in a stateless society could be legitimate and what the optimal substance of law without the state might be.  Find the book on the Law Library Balcony K250 .C48 2013.
