The re-emergence of anarchism as a serious theoretical and political trajectory in geography is a trend to be celebrated. Taking the call for an anarchist geography seriously, however, raises many questions, the answers to which are by no means clear. What, for example, is the analytic contribution of anarchism to theories of space? And, what is the relation of an anarchist geography to other forms of radical thought such as feminism, post-colonialism, and queer studies? This commentary details some of these questions and attempts to position them as a series of problems that must be addressed head on if anarcho-geography is to develop from a theory to a praxis.
