This book presents the writings of Josiah Warren (1798–1873), often called “the first American anarchist.” Many of his writings are published here for the first time, or for the first time since they appeared in tiny self-published pamphlets in the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Warren was a key figure in American utopianism, individualism, and radical economics. He was also an ingenious inventor in the areas of printing and music. The texts are accompanied by a full scholarly apparatus, including historical introductions and timelines, an annotated bibliography, and detailed notes.

Keywords: self-sovereignty; anarchism; Josiah Warren; libertarianism; individualism; transcendentalism; anti-capitalism; American philosophy; utopias; ideal communities; New Harmony; Modern Times; Time Store
