    Top 3-5 Anarchist Books?

    Hey there! I'm pretty new to learning about this political philosophy. So far, I've read through about half of The Conquest of Bread. I'm wondering if there's any consensus on which anarchists texts are most important/first reads. I know anarchism played a pretty significant role in workers'...
