Consisting of 10 collaborative picture-essays that weave poetic words with intricate yet bold images, this collection aims to challenge readers into thinking of community action in a positive light. Depicting what it would be like to live, every day, in a world created from below, where coercion and hierarchy are largely vestiges of the past, Paths Toward Utopia suggests some of the practices that prefigure the self-organization that would be commonplace in an egalitarian society. This stirring book ultimately mines what people do in their daily lives for the already-existent gems of a freer future—premised on anarchistic ethics like cooperation and direct democracy.
