Utilising Michael Freeden's morphological (or conceptual) approach to the study of ideologies, this book applies this approach too the study of anarchist ideology. The volume comprising 15 (chapters) and an introduction – authored by a handpicked group of established and rising scholars – investigates how anarchists often seek to sharpen their message and struggle to determine what ideas and actions are central to their identity. This book examines the meanings of its key concepts, which have been divided into three categories: Core, Adjacent, and Peripheral concepts. Each chapter focuses on one important concept, shows how anarchists have understood the concept, and highlights its relationships to other concepts.
