"An Abyss of Anarchy, Nihilism, and Despair": Historical Representations of Anarchists in Britain
by Jutila, Alexander Lee, M.A., The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, 2018, 154; 13419186
Abstract (Summary)

Studies on historical representations of anarchists tend to focus on terrorist depictions and how they compare to the actual activities of the anarchist movement. Using British print media, this thesis explores other political, cultural, and social representations of anarchists in an effort to expand the field beyond a strict focus on terrorism. In addition, this thesis will also investigate the ways Cesare Lombroso and Havelock Ellis shaped discussions of anarchists in the British public sphere.
