Since the days of Occupy, the once dead letter of ‘anarchism’ has gained a new lease of life in academic and popular attention. Within politics and geography, an intriguing part of this renewed appeal has centred on claims that early anarchist thought carries a rich conception of territory, one which present debates ought to recover. These claims, however, have often relied on mythological readings of the anarchist tradition, rather than on close intellectual histories of key ‘anarchist’ texts. This thesis offers an attempt at a consistent and deep reading of how arguments about territory figured in the writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Mikhail Bakunin and Petr Kropotkin. In doing this, the thesis not only offers fresh insights into the political thought of each of these thinkers, but also sheds light on broader debates about territory in the long nineteenth century. Beyond demystifying the notion of a perennial anarchist conception of territory, the thesis therefore also contributes to the broader project of historicizing the concept of territory in nineteenth-century thought.
