"Two major political currents are now operating on the Canadian scene: the movementtowards greater independence from the United States, and a reawakened thru st for local control -- in neighbourhoods, universities and industrial plants, and among many groups of the poor in our society. In this symposium (first published in 'The Canadian Forum) George Woodcock, as a long-time advocate of an anarchist tradition, writes of an inherent contradiction between the movement to nationalism embodying bureaucratic centralization and the trend to local autonomy. Some of our leading political theorists and commentators respond to Woodcock's essay. Their answers reveal the various political credos that are now forming among the left in English Canada." - from the rear cover.Contents: 1. George Woodcock's "A Plea for the Anti-nation"; 2.
