Perspectives on Anarchist Theory is an essential journal published by the Institute for Anarchist Studies (an organization established to support the development of anarchism, and copublishers with us of the "Anarchist Interventions" series). The journal includes recent essays by IAS-supported writers and translators, features with anarchist views on contemporary issues, book reviews, updates, and more. We highly recommend checking out Perspectives—its editors assemble a solid range of pieces exploring a different topic with each issue. Always worth reading and considering how these topics play out in our struggles.

New issue, number 33, is "Transformations"

Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, N.33, on the theme of "Transformations," is over 200 beautiful pages and features the Abolitionist Tarot art of Kai Lumumba Barrow throughout. Describing what ties the thirteen essays in this issue together, Lara Messersmith-Glavin, in the introduction explains, “It is (the) push and pull of the old and the new that we see in this issue, a collection of investigations into both our histories and our futures, inquiries into the symbols and memories that have shaped the world in which we find ourselves, and visions for the ones we hope to create. We are also honored to share the work of a new set of archetypes, the Abolitionist Tarot, from which we may draw the clear understanding of the moment in which we find ourselves.” The issue features Jesse Cohn’s “Demodernizing Anarchism,” as well as articles on consensus decision-making in the intentional community of Christiania; anarchist cybernetics; communicating climate catastrophe through performance; and explorations of how major social change happens and why. Using tarot as a guide, Messersmith-Glavin explains, “Our hope is that these works will help provide a path for us as we grow from fools to abolitionists and beyond.”
