The massive protests against globalisation in recent years have reawoken interest in anarchism, mainly due to the non-hierarchical, participatory and cooperative forms of organisation that many of the movements possess. Changing anarchism sets out to reposition anarchist theory and practice, in an era of globalisation, both in terms of documenting contemporary anarchist practice and providing a viable analytical framework for understanding it. The contributions here, from both academics and activists, raise challenging and sometimes provocative questions about the complex nature of power and resistance to it in a number of areas. These include: sexuality and identity; psychological dependency on technology; libertarian education; religion and spirituality; protest tactics; mental health and artistic expression; and the ongoing 'metaphorical wars' against drugs and terror. This collection therefore both epitomises the rich diversity that exists within contemporary anarchism as well as demonstrating its ongoing relevance as a sociological tool.
