We're continuing our series of discussions on "classic" anarchist
thinkers.  This month's it's Elisee Reclus, French geographer, writer, and

According to Kirkpatrick Sale<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirkpatrick_Sale>

His geographical work, thoroughly researched and unflinchingly scientific,
laid out a picture of human-nature interaction that we today would call
bioregionalism <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bioregionalism>. It showed,
with more detail than anyone but a dedicated geographer could possibly
absorb, how the ecology of a place determined the kinds of lives and
livelihoods its denizens would have and thus how people could properly live
in self-regarding and self-determined bioregions without the interference
of large and centralized governments that always try to homogenize diverse
geographical areas.
