black and green review
From Primal Anarchy by Kevin Tucker
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.

From Wild Resistance by Kevin Tucker
Semantics can be painful, but sometimes a little goes a long way.
For nearly the past two decades, I have loudly called myself an anarcho-primitivist. I’ve found both grounding and a place within anarcho-primitivism. It’s helped define a place to learn and fight from. But, like all things, it’s important to realize limitations as well. Is this new ground, or are we still on enemy turf?
