Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Anarchy and Society: Reflections on Anarchist Sociology contains the table of contents, acknowledgements and the preface. The book addresses a few key questions: can anarchist-sociologists critique the social order around them, noting what they like and dislike, what lives up to their values, and then develop strategies for moving towards a better future? It is in this respect that anarchism and sociology have both been "progressive" and part of the Enlightenment tradition, seeking to improve upon past victories and move society towards greater equality, justice, and liberty. The main difference one sees between the two traditions is that sociologists have tended to have a more reformist orientation towards the question of progress and the anarchists a more radical orientation.

Keywords: anarchist sociology; reformist orientation; society
