    1. This book is a strong retort to disillusionment and nihilism. By giving up on the "total victory" which we all secretly knew wasn't going to happen, the author is opening the door to so many possibilities that anarchists must try to figure out in coming times.At first this book depressed me, but now that I've accepted its conclusions I'm actually energized by it.

A warning though: there's no real conclusion or wrapping up to the book. The intro has as much of that as you'll get. Also, there's this essay (very different style of writing) that speculates and expands o [...]
