Exploring open relationships and non-monogamy from the perspective of green anarchism, Anarchism & Polyamory is a collection of essays and articles, many new (but a few oldies), designed to be accessible to those new to both anarchism and polyamory. It is examines personal and sexual relationships through the prism of anarchism, including considering some common pitfalls and how society’s hierarchies are reinforced in personal relationships.
The authors are wide ranging, mixing both past and present from Europe and the US, many talking from their own experience.
The collection will be available at UK bookfairs and other events in hard copy for £1.50, but can be downloaded as free pdf here. We are are looking at doing faciliating some discussions later in the year for groups wanting to explore some of the issues raised.
Given the amount of interest and reaction already received from preview copies, we are planning a follow-up publication. So, we are interested in responses, whether challenging some of the positions taken in the articles or covering topics that the authors have missed out. We are particularly interested in material which deals with the problems of being non-monogamous in modern society, of communication with in open relations, challenging hierarchies in relationships and how all this is informed by anarchism.
Dysophia is a relatively new imprint producing collections of writings covering topics of interest relating to theory and practice within the green anarchist movement. All material is available free on our website.
