Professor Henry Farrell reviewed Under Three Flags
and James Scott's newest book which can be read at: http://www.the-american-interest.com/article-bd.cfm?piece=916
. While he raises some interesting questions, he summarizes anarchism too briefly to yield his conclusion that it has taken a good turn since the late 19th century by renouncing "violence" and accepting the fact that states are here to stay. Hence, states should not be overthrown in favor of statelessness. He does note anarchism is an vibrant ideology and its activists are important for building networks, developing solidarities and raising consciousness. I don't think that most anarchists would agree with his conclusions but I would very much like to see their responses to his suggestions!
