Depending how new is "newer" - but "The Anarchist Ethic in the Age of the Anti-Globalization Movement" provides a great overview of post-left stuff as it was circa 2000. Gelderloos, Landstreicher, Bonanno, Bey/Wilson, and some of the Do or Die pieces (like "Desire is Speaking") do some of the movement-building discussion; in the UK the Trapese Collective published a handbook on organising/taking action. If you're in the borderzone between anarchism and libertarian Marxism then you might like the Invisible Committee and communisation theory, autonomia (Italian autonomist Marxism), and Open Marxism.

Anarcho-syndicalism, anarcho-communism and suchlike are probably the oldest anarchist movements if we only count those using the A-word, starting in the 1840s and peaking in the 1920s I think, although Stirner, Proudhon and Godwin all wrote earlier. There's another wave came out of the 60s and is a lot more critical of Fordism, work, etc. Some of these are New Left versions of anarcho-communism (Maurice Brinton, some Situationists...) but there's also eco-anarchism, anarcha-feminism, post-left anarchy, insurrectionism, anarcho-pacifism, DIY anarchism, anarcho-punk, some of which overlap a lot. In the last 20 years we've had a lot of drift towards idpol and poststructuralism, bringing us things like postanarchism, decolonial anarchism and intersectional anarchism (all rather iffy IMO).
