"The primary aim of this paper is to demonstrate the existence of a positive discourse of communitarian anarchist economic thought. A secondary aim is to show that there is intellectual space within the genre of ?histories of economic thought? that permits a claim for communitarian anarchism to stand alongside all other discourses of economic thought that compete with the hegemonic neo-classical paradigm. Throughout the twentieth century, histories of economic thought have ignored the positive dimensions of all socialist or anarchist discourses. Only the critiques of capitalism or proposals for the civilizing of capitalism have been considered to be worthy of entry into the ?voyager's log? of the course to the ?Promised Land?. Most histories of economic thought selectively engage 'socialism? only through Marxism."
