Anarchists Against the Wall (www.awalls.org) is an Israeli action group supporting the popular Palestinian struggle against segregation and land confiscation in the West Bank. Uri Gordon, a participant in the group and author of the book Anarchy Alive!, will discuss the group's activities and examine the achievements and limitations of the joint struggle, as well as anarchist perspectives on national liberation and the future of Palestine/Israel.

About Anarchy Alive! www.anarchyalive.com

Anarchist politics are at the heart of today's most vibrant and radical social movements. From squatted social centres and community gardens to acts of sabotage and raucous summit blockades, anarchist groups and networks are spreading an ethos of direct action, non-hierarchical organizing and self-liberation that has redefined revolutionary struggle for the 21st century.

Anarchy Alive! is a fascinating, in-depth look at the practice and theory of contemporary anarchism. This is the ideal book for anyone looking for a fresh, informed and critical engagement with anarchism, as a mature and dynamic political force in the age of globalisation.

Uri Gordon is an Israeli anarchist theorist and activist. He is a lecturer at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies in Ketura, Israel. One of several anarchist theorists to come of age during the anti-globalization movement at the turn of the twenty-first century, he has worked with anarchist and radical movements including Indymedia, Peoples' Global Action, and Anarchists Against
the Wall. Active primarily in Britain and Israel, Gordon has participated in protests at international summits across Europe.

I may be paranoid but I would not buy this book online although I would love to get a copy of it at a bookstore somewhere. In the run-up to the Olympics the police and CSIS out on the west coast are putting every known activist under surveillance.  

Sounds like this may be a very good book.

My first impulse reaction is: I haven't even gotten around to reading the moltov rag yet when am I going to have time to fit in these people from israel?

My second reaction is to ask myself: How would the crowd compare at each publications respective launch and which one would I fit in better with?
