An exercise in practical Christian anarchism

Christian AnarchismAlexandre Christoyannopoulos has published a highly-recommended book entitled Christian Anarchism: A Political Commentary on the Gospel. The work itself is a revision of the author's doctoral thesis, which is available for free (no cost) download from the British Library Ethos system (registration required). I went through the trouble of registering and downloading the document, which was incredibly tedious for a "free" download, but beggars cannot be choosers. I have not read the work yet.

I noticed that the dissertation itself does not indicate a copyright license (or even an explicit statement of copyright ownership). Combining this with the fact that copyright law is coercive and therefore incompatible with Christian anarchism, I have decided to host the PDF of the dissertation on my website to make it easier for the public to find and access it. If at any time the author asks me to take it down, I will do so (I'll also take it down if I run into bandwidth trouble with my hosting provider, but I'll try to put it elsewhere).

Without further ado:
