Abstract:The repudiation of the state as a form of political organisation, the recognition that the state is part of the deadly dynamic of capital, moves with different rhythms in different parts of the world. This special issue was inspired by a conference entitled 'Politics at a Distance from the State', held at Rhodes University, the Eastern Cape, South Africa, 29-30 September 2012. Contributions: Preface: at a distance from the state (John Holloway); Politics at a distance from the state: radical, South African and Zimbabwean praxis today (Kirk Helliker & Lucien van der Walt); Constructing the domain of freedom: thinking politics at a distance from the state (Michael Neocosmos); Back to the future: revival, relevance and route of an anarchist/syndicalist approach for twenty-first-century left, labour and national liberation movements (Lucien van der Walt); Prefiguring democratic revolution? 'Workers' control' and 'workerist' traditions of radical South African labour, 1970-1985 (Sian Byrne & Nicole Ulrich); Broadening conceptions of democracy and citizenship: the subaltern histories of rural resistance in Mpondoland and Marikana (Camalita Naicker & Sarah Bruchhausen); A feminist perspective on autonomism and commoning, with reference to Zimbabwe (Tarryn Alexander & Kirk Helliker).
