You Can't Blow Up a Social Relationship: The Anarchist Case Against Terrorism

This well-written and well-documented pamphlet is a critique of the use of violence as a political tactic. Claimed as one of the most important anarchist pamphlets written in the latter part of the 20th century, this reviewer has some reservations. An important contribution to the debate nevertheless. This essay was published as a pamphlet around late 1978 or 1979, in the aftermath of the Sydney Hilton Bombing. The black humour of the time around the anarchist movement was that the police and security forces framed Ananda Marga because they came before Anarchism in the alphabet. The arguments in this pamphlet are still as valid today as when they were written 20 years ago. -Anarres Books Collective
