Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism

Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism: An Unbridgeable Chasm is a polemical essay by Murray Bookchin published as a book in 1995. It is a critique of deep ecology, bio-centrism and lifestyle anarchism. Bookchin sets his social anarchism in opposition to individualist, primitivist and post-modern forms of anarchism (represented, he maintains, by such anarchist philosophers as John Zerzan and Hakim Bey).[1]
