Perspectives on Anarchist Theory is the annual publication of the Institute for Anarchist Studies; it includes recent essays by IAS-supported writers, feature articles with anarchist views on contemporary issues, book reviews, and updates about IAS activities. 

Perspectives on Anarchist Theory is edited and produced by a collective that includes Paul Messersmith-Glavin, Maia Ramnath, Lara Messersmith-Glavin, Sara Rahnoma-Galindo, Carla Bergman, and Kristian Williams. Cover design by Josh MacPhee and layout by Lantz Arroyo.

This issue (No. 29, spring 2016), titled "Anarcha-Feminisms," opens with a graphic story by Cindy Crabb, author of the long-running zine "Doris." The issue contains essays on the history of ‘70s anarcha-feminism; the relation between Black feminism and anarchism; women and the relation between the psychological sciences and the prison system; the dominant approaches to the relationship between anarchism and feminism, including a feminist critique of how anarchism falls short; indigenous feminism; and organizing anarchist responses to Hepatitis C and HIV. It also includes a manifesto challenging liberal tendencies in anarchist feminism by two members of the Black Rose Anarchist Federation writing from Chile, and drawing on South American militant movements; and a personal account of exclusion and inclusion in radical circles by a young Trans person. Not to mention book reviews (also on topic!), a reflection by original IAS board member Paul Messersmith-Glavin on 20 years of the IAS, and more IAS-related news and updates. With cover design by Josh MacPhee, and color art work by Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative members, N.O. Bonzo, and others.
