"The rejection of politics" is a basic tenet of all anarchism. Woodcock however does not discuss anarchism as such but the path that his own political interests have taken: from international anarchist to Canadian patriot. Two recurrent themes in the book are his antipathy to Marxism and his ambivalent attitude toward Canadian nationalism. Woodcock believes that the "Left" is dead and that modern anarchists have to shed outdated concepts of the past.
