Anarcho-Syndicalist Review is an independent syndicalist magazine, published since May 1, 1986 (originally as Libertarian Labor Review). ASR is an independent forum for non-sectarian, critical, informed and constructive discussion of anarcho-syndicalist theory and practice. We are not affiliated with any organization. We take as our starting point the Principles of Revolutionary Unionism adopted at the 1922 conference of revolutionary unions that relaunched the International Workers Association.

Information on our current issue is available here. You can set up a subscription or order specific issues through our Subscription or Store tabs.

Our outlook is internationalist. We stand in solidarity with working people everywhere, and in particular with those who, rejecting both state capitalism and state socialism as proven threats to the health of people and planet alike, seek peace and justice for themselves and their fellow workers through international labor solidarity.

We can be reached at anarchosyndicalistreview [at] gmail.com, or PO Box 42531, Philadelphia PA 19101.

Website Limitations

We have recently received a number of complaints from people that the subscribe button is not working. However, others have been able to subscribe without difficulty. We would appreciate if anyone who encounters this issue could describe the steps that led to the problem, so we can try to chase it down. It is also possible to subscribe by mail, or to simply issue a payment to our email address and send us a note as to what it is for. We apologize for any inconvenience.

“Upgrades” to our content management system disabled many of our links to articles. We have not figured out how to get new links up, and are beginning the process of identifying links that have gone bad and fixing them. However, the content is still there. If you enter the text you were clicking on into the search field, you should quickly find what you were looking for. We apologize for this. (And if you drop us a line identifying the bad link we will get on it as soon as we can)

Our original web site (syndicalist.org) was hijacked by vulture capitalists eleven years ago, and our web hosting service’s computer drive was destroyed in a fire soon thereafter. The architecture of the site could not be restored from our back-up files and so we had been gradually rebuilding this site. However, beginning in 2019 WordPress has undergone a series of “upgrades” that have seriously undermined its functionality. If there are any readers who have an understanding of WordPress, we would very much appreciate assistance.

The Shopping Cart allows you to purchase the current issue or any back issue of ASR, along with a variety of books, pamphlets and buttons. The “Browse Products” menu (under the shopping cart, on the right side of the screen) lists the items available from us. We continue to work on improving this functionality. You must select a payment option to complete an order. Please let us know if you experience any problems.

The ASR Archives tab lists complete tables of contents for our back issues, dating back to 1986. (Only some of the articles we used to make available are now available; it took some time to figure out a rather clumsy work-around to restore this functionality.) We have noticed that this platform is not stable, and that links periodically go bad.
