Drawing the Line book. Painting a vivid picture of 1960s counterculture ideas, this new collection of the late Paul Goodman's essential anarchist writingsfrom utopian essays to practical proposalsreveals how he inspired the dissident youth of the era and profoundly influenced movement theory and practice. Long out-of-print, these provocative, insightful, and incisive pieces analyze citizenship.

He proposed, instead of a reliance on drugs, a return to revitalizing leisure activity; the non-interference of the state in one's sexual life ("to license sex is absurd"); withdrawal from Vietnam; banning private automobiles in Manhattan; building dormitories in housing projects to allow children to safely get away from home; and removing national boundaries by encouraging.

Paul Goodman (September 9, 1911 – August 2, 1972) was an American sociologist, poet, writer, anarchist, and public intellectual. Goodman is now mainly remembered as the author of Growing Up Absurd (1960) and an activist on the pacifist Left in the 1960s and an inspiration to that era's student movement. He is less remembered as a co-founder of Gestalt Therapy in the 1940s and '50s.

The Paul Goodman Reader brings Goodman into our present moment, and this is a time that can profit from his thinking. For one, the anthology generously samples Goodman’s politics. We have such essays as the Preface to Utopian Essays and Practical Proposals ; The Anarchist Principle ; The Missing Community ; and Civil Disobedience (to name just a handful). For another, there is an ample.

Goodman's literary executor Taylor Stoehr has gathered together nine core texts from his anarchist legacy to future generations--the "utopian essays and practical proposals" that inspired the dissident youth of the Sixties, influencing movement theory and practice so profoundly that they have.

Paul Goodman (1911-1972) was a novelist, playwright, poet, psychotherapist, social critic, and activist on the pacifist Left in the 1960s. He wrote a number of books such as Growing Up Absurd: Problems of Youth in the Organized System,New Reformation: Notes of a Neolithic Conservative,Compulsory Mis-Education, and the Community of Scholars., etc. This book was published posthumously in 1977.

He describes the libertarian as "rather a millenarian than an utopian." (Pg. 3) Decentralization is not lack or order or organization, but "a different kind of coordination." (Pg. 185)

He states that it is important to understand that modern urbanization is not a result of technological advance; "Indeed, the thrust of modern technology has been against urbanization... automation implies, if anything, the concentration of a great plant in a small space with a few workers..." (Pg. 62)

He advises, "I do not myself think that we will turn away from science. In spite of the fantasies of hippies, we are going to continue to live in a technological world; the question is, is that viable?" (Pg. 231)

This book will be of interest to those who like Goodman's other books.

This collection is notable chiefly for its inclusion of the May Pamphlets, Goodman's clearest, most comprehensive statement of his communitarian, pacifist anarchism. In these brief essays, written at the close of WWII, Goodman develops a vision of a 'piecemeal' anarchism, in which the people develop the 'habit of freedom' by employing direct action to resist capitalist coercion and alienation, using means which prefigure the social forms of a liberated society.

Goodman never succumbs to the hyper-individualism that plague many anarchist writers. Like Chomsky, he bases his philosophy not on "self-expression", but on the natural human capacity for growth and solidarity.

A provocative, exhilarating, and deeply insightful read for those concerned with the problem of human liberation, and a bold challenge to Leninism.

"A free society cannot be the substitution of a new order for the old order; it is the extension of spheres of free action until they make up most of the social life."
