This anthology of Sakolsky's essays contains 20 chapters in a dynamic collage of ideas and action. Born at the beginning of a new century, this vibrant collection glows with flames of discontent and defiance and flows with waves of laughter and possibility.
Ranging widely from Mayday to Utopia, from Refusal to Autonomy, and from
Insurrection to Imagination, this compilation is in turn defiant, reflective, and playfulâ€”a brick for hurling through the windows of despair and a doorway to creating an anarchy that is not afraid to dream. Most of these new and selected writings have been published before in a diverse array of dissident publications (before being reworked and remixed for this book) including: Alternative Press Review, Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed, Black Sun, Confluence, Fifth Estate, Green Anarchy, Je Ne Sais Quoi, Lip (on-line), Minus Tides, The Oystercatcher, Social Anarchism, and Utopian Studies. Two are culled from previously published volumes (one written for Rebel Musics,
edited by Daniel Fischlin and Ajay Heble, and the other from the introduction to
the Autonomedia anthology which Ron Sakolsky edited, Surrealist Subversions).
All are bathed in the subversive light of anarchy and mad love. A much needed collection from a vastly underappreciated contemporary anarchist writer, teacher, thinker, and organizer.
