Robert Graham's trilogy ends with The New Anarchism, which deals with the exciting developments in anarchist theory since the reemergence of social movements in the 1960s and 1970s. In his afterword, Graham surveys the many different currents in anarchist thought documented in all three volumes of this outstanding and definitive anthology, discussing the continuity and changes in anarchist ideas as they have evolved in their historical context and the importance of these ideas for the future.

Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas documents various currents in anarchist thought, from eco-anarchism on, as well as the spread of anarchist social movements around the world.
