(Kurt H. Zube)
An Anarchist Manifesto
The Manifesto of Peace and Freedom
The Alternative to the Communist Manifesto
Kurt Zube offers us here a full exposition of the bases of panarchic anarchy, a very practical conception of social organization condensed in the aspiration: "to each the government or non government of his dreams."
Translated from the German by Doris Pfaff and John Zube. Edited by Edward Mornin.
First published by the MACKAY- GESELLSCHAFT, Freiburg/Br., West Germany in 1977.
