There are important ways in which "Constructing Anarchisms" has been a response to A!'s death and the ways in which doing the anarchy thing has changed in his absence. I never wrote for A!, as I sometimes do for other friends, but have generally written, published, translated, etc., for some years now, in the knowledge that he was doing his own thing as well. There was possible work that didn't have to be done, because there was enough common ground in our projects that I could feel like those bases were covered. We disagreed more often that we agreed on the details, I imagine, but shared, I think, a good deal with regard to the basics.

A! got the whole anarchy thing, understood its beauty, without shying away from the conflict and danger involved with attaching ourselves to a living tradition with uncertainty at least close to its heart.
