Also, A People's History of the United States, though it isn't particularly about Anarchism, is a must read and the author is Anarchist.

The Invisible Hook: The Hidden Economics of Pirates

First even time I've seen a working model of anarchy. However, it's because it is a VERY specific form of property rights that the whole thing works. I don't see it working in any other context.

The Nozick book attacks Anarchism, lol.

Sorry, I conflated Libertarianism Minarchy with Libertarian Anarchism. I mean, I could have mentioned Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt because he gives good arguments against state intervention in the economy. Whereas Nozick's book is more political philosophy, it still has some decent arguments (even though Nozick later described the book as "seriously inadequate").

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Would anyone mind giving me a quick version of how we get there? Like would anarchists just want the state gone immediately or would there be some transition period? Or would it just be volunteers who leave the state?

It would be gradual change. Minarchism would most likely be the first objective. (Many anarchists would support minarchism, but have disbelief in the concept of a minimal state that doesn't happen to expand.)

Agorism (a strand of market anarchism) supports the growing of alternative, voluntary institutions (i.e., a counter-economy) until such and such a point where the State becomes no longer necessary. It's sort of like Leninism but instead of using socialism to make the State unnecessary it uses counter-economics. Examples of such practices are tax evasion, alternative currency (Bitcoin), using services and labor of illegal immigrants, etc. Major works on the idea can be found by Samuel Edward Konkin III in "New Libertarian Manifesto" and "An Agorist Primer".

Some anarcho-capitalists like Lew Rockwell and Murray Rothbard might implicitly support counter-economics but also place an emphasis on getting political candidates elected that will gradually scale back the role of the State. Rothbard was a fan of Ron Paul and Rockwell worked for Paul's various campaigns I believe. I don't see it as a particularly useful strategy but meh. Rothbard may have laid out why he was a partyarchist somewhere but I don't think he wrote any actual books on it.

A smaller strand which I've only seen explicitly formulated by Stefan Molyneux is by way of placing emphasis on early education. He thinks that if children were generally brought up to *actually* be against theft and murder then people would be less apt to form governments or partake in the kind of thinking that leads to them, as well as less apt to actually steal and murder themselves. Molyneux has written a bunch of books but I haven't read any (save for UPB) so I wouldn't be able to say which specifically deal with it. All his books can be found here though all available on PDF: http://freedomainradio.com...

My own view is a combination of all three I suppose. Obviously people need to be accustomed to large scale voluntary institutions that deal with the things that are traditionally left up to States and obviously general education is necessary if one doesn't want State to simply re-form. I'm not as in to the whole lobbying and voting idea but I suppose there's nothing wrong with it in theory. I would feel too guilty voting seeing what members of the government do but if you don't have a problem then whatevs.
