Item description for A Living Revolution: Anarchism in the Kibbutz Movement by James Horrox...

"A brilliant study of anarchism in the kibbutz movement. . . . Assessing the actual kibbutz practice, and seeing the kibbutzim as both a model way to live and a set of experiments to learn from, Horrox gives this history the meticulous attention it deserves."-Michael Albert, ZNet

An intentional community based on cooperative social principles, the kibbutz has played a major role in the development of Israeli society. Nowhere else in the world have such experiments in egalitarian living and shared labor been as successful or as enduring. From the early twentieth century, when large numbers of European Jews fled persecution and pogroms to settle in Palestine, to the present day, the kibbutzim have remained a thriving network of communal enterprises.

A Living Revolution explores the foundations of the kibbutz movement, providing a detailed look at their initial economic, social, and political organization. Basing his research largely on newly translated letters, diaries, and essays by key figures and participants, James Horrox uncovers a deep and explicitly anarchist strain running through the movement's early days. Not only does this illuminate a neglected aspect of Jewish history, it takes serious issue with Marxist and other historians, especially those who see the kibbutzim primarily as progenitors of the Israeli State. At the same time, it depicts anarchism as both an inspiring utopian ideology and a viable social practice.
