DAMNED FOOLS IN UTOPIA AND OTHER WRITINGS ON ANARCHISM AND WAR RESISTANCE
by Nicolas Walter edited by David Goodway
A hefty collection of noted anarchist Nicolas Walter’s writings, this history recounts the anarchist and peace movements in the United Kingdom alongside the author’s adventures through activism.
Inspired by the Suez and Hungarian Revolutions and his participation in the New Left, Walter became an anarchist and proponent of the freethought movement. Recounting his personal history in two autobiographical pieces, the author reflects on his militant involvement in the British nuclear disarmament movement, his experience as on of the Spies of Peace, and his connection to the Solidarity group.
As an activist, Walter concurrently analyzed history, political theory, and activist practices, which he combined to form the backbone upon which he built his beliefs. Also included are musing on various intellectual and political figures such as George Orwell, Herbert Read, C. W. Daniel, and Guy Aldred, in addition to ruminations on atheism, rationalism, and the limitations of academia.
