"Since the WTO, anarchism is once again a household word. This book introduced a whole new generation to the enticements of the anarchist lifestyle when it was released in the early 90's. Still a password for acceptance in many circles, it is an incitement to begin living fully now, without waiting for a hypothetical "revolution." Hakim Bey (a pseudonym) gleefully offends everyone, including anarchists of all stripes, while always seeking to inspire critical thinking in readers looking to break from the stultifying constraints of modern life."
Recommended by Stephen, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The underground cult bestseller! Essays redefining the psychogeographical nooks of autonomy. Recipes for poetic terror, anarcho-black magic, post-situ psychotropic surgery, denunciations of spiritual addictions to vapid infotainment cultsthis is the bastard classic, the watermark impressed upon our minds. Where conscience informs praxis, and action infects consciousness, T.A.Z. continues to worm its way into above-ground culture. Second edition, with a new introductory essay by the author and additional appendical materials.

My first encounter with Hakim Bey was prior to official publication, when the essay "Chaos" was making speedy rounds across the primitive internet. More than one friend printed off these essays and handed them to me with a wide-eyed hysteria, promising that I needed to read them, that they rewired with the same unexpected a-ha as "Cosmic Trigger" by Robert Anton Wilson. To this day, Temporary Autonomous Zone is my most borrowed and stolen book, with every word poised to fry your untended mind-meat into a bloody steak capable of walking out of your head and turning back into cow.

The quintessential read for any and all who have ever experienced even the slightest tinge of inexplicable freedom via imagination, Bey's TAZ creates a sense of collectivity that can not be understood without digesting this text. From pirates to Babylon, Bey covers the entire breadth of human collectivity and essential freedom in the face of an empirical society keen on defining the undefinable, resulting in an intellectual explosion on a scale known only to Melville's Moby-Dick. A truly delightful read.
