This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in this book. The book proposes a set of goals and objectives for scholars of anarchist movements and anarchist movements' scholars. A variety of sociological movement theories can be deployed to explain the prevalence and activities of anarchist movements. Social movement scholars' consistent avoidance of anarchist movement analyses illustrates both a preference for state-oriented subject matter and a confusion and frustration with explaining anti-state movements via typical frameworks. Like other movements, anarchist movements are composed of individuals and organizations that are embedded in dense and diffused networks, who share collective identities, who are definitely involved in extra-institutional actions. Additionally, even though a large, active domination counter-network exists that opposes anarchist efforts, the regular, popular framing of anarchism is flagrantly and undeniably incorrect.
