The print edition, with cover design by Josh MacPhee of Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, artwork, and layout by Lantz Arroyo of Radix Media, comes out annually, and is available from AK Press here!.

Perspectives on Anarchist Theory is edited and produced by a collective that includes Paul Messersmith-Glavin, Maia Ramnath, Lara Messersmith-Glavin, Sara Rahnoma-Galindo, Theresa Warburton, Hillary Lazar, (and with James Birmingham working on the current Imaginations print issue).
Each issue of Perspectives is organized around a theme.  Some recent themes include Anarcha-Feminisms, Beyond the Crisis, Justice, Strategy, and Care.  The current issue is on Imaginations (N. 31), and later in 2020 we will produce an issue devoted to the theme of Power. Perspectives mission is to help organizers develop the ability to write and to support the voices of those historically excluded. Perspectives members will assist you in your writing.
Book Reviews
Perspectives editors are always on the lookout for book reviewers, so please get in touch if there is a title you are interested in examining; however, keep in mind that Perspectives prefers to publish comparative book reviews dealing with two or three titles. At least one book in your review should be forthcoming or have appeared within the last year. In most cases, the editorial collective can acquire a review copy for forthcoming and new books for the reviewer.
