No Gods, No Masters, No Peripheries

No Gods, No Masters, No Peripheries: Global Anarchisms (PM Press, 2015)

Edited by Barry Maxwell and Raymond Craib

Was anarchism in areas outside of Europe an import and a script to be mimicked? Was it perpetually at odds with other currents of the Left? The authors in this collection take up these questions of geographical and political peripheries. Building on recent research that has emphasized the plural origins of anarchist thought and practice, they reflect on the histories and cultures of the antistatist mutual aid movements of the last century beyond the boundaries of an artificially coherent Europe. At the same time, they reexamine the historical relationships between anarchism and communism without starting from the position of sectarian difference (Marxism versus anarchism). Rather, they look at how anarchism and communism intersected; how the insurgent Left could appear—and in fact was—much more ecumenical, capacious, and eclectic than frequently portrayed; and reveal that such capaciousness is a hallmark of anarchist practice, which is prefigurative in its politics and antihierarchical and antidogmatic in its ethics.

The Paradox of Two Sudans

The Paradox of Two Sudans: The CPA and the Road to Partition (Africa World Press, 2015)

Mansour Khalid

This book offers thoughtful insights into the protracted peace process that led to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005 (CPA): its arbiters, its major players, and its ultimate failure to produce a united Sudan. It is a rare glimpse into the road to the partition of Sudan by one of the most formidable Sudanese scholars and a seasoned diplomat, who above all happened to be an insider to the same peace process.

“There is perhaps no better Sudanese than Mansour Khalid to present an objective assessment relating to the negotiating and implementation of the Sudan Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed in January 2005. The rigorous, passionate but objective analysis by Mansour Khalid contained in this book tells a story which, in a real sense, can and should serve as an important manual to help guide all of us as we continue to engage the struggle for the renewal of our dear continent. This is a book that we must not only read, but which we must study." Thabo Mbeki, Former President, Republic of South Africa
