When I was asking myself the kind of questions you are, there were some authors that were particularly interesting to read, so I'd like to share them with you.

Fredy Perlman is one of the most interesting authors in the "newer" anarchism. His works on nationalism (i.e. "Anti-Semitism and the Beirut Pogrom" here: remain essential to me. "Birth of a Revolutionary Movement in Yugoslavia" (here: might seem marginal, but it contains an interesting critique of workers' self-management that you seem to be defending. All in all, I haven't yet read a text by Perlman that is not worth a read.

Many writings that come from an old anarchist journal called Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed will give you some thought: Unfortunately this has been somewhat left off in the online English-speaking anarchist circles, people easily falling for some incomprehensible French ultra-left or pro-situationist prose which in reality has never been anything else but violent reformism. The archives of AJODA contain tons of things that are very much worth a read.

You should probably read some writings of Alfredo M. Bonanno. I personally think that much what he wrote and continues to write is utter moralist bullshit, but this doesn't mean that it's not interesting. It's also one of the most influential authors in the living anarchism today, even if Bonanno's followers are often reluctant to cite their sources (this helps them pretend that they invented everything all on their own, just like some of the comments above). Here:

Last but not least, read *everything* and don't forget to live and fight. It's the only way to get "good arguments" for anarchism or for anything else.
