Primal Anarchy Podcast 18: Book Recommendations, Part 3

The trilogy of book recommendations finally concludes. Wild Resistance no 6 is finally out now, plus information on issue no 7 and call for papers. The heavily revised and expanded second edition of For Wildness and Anarchy is nearly done, hopefully will be printer bound within the next few months. Fiction book recommendations, and a reason for the lack thereof. Reader requests: US history recommendations and kid’s book. A plug for Gathered Remains and Cull of Personality. History recommendations. Thoughts on a couple key (or not) anarchist books. And then a quick run through of the massive world of anthropological book recommendations: cultural anthropology, overviews, ethnographies, ethnohistory, and anthropological looks at war.
