Taz the Temporary Autonomous Zone 2ND Editionby Hakim Bey
"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."
Synopses & Reviews
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.
