by Fredy Perlman
Fredy Perlman (1934-1985) has had an enormous influence on anarchist and radical thought and critique. The nine essays in this book trace the expansion of his scope from Marxist-leaning to Situationist inspired beyond "ultra-left" to a scathing condemnation of civilization itself.
Delivered with passion and ferocity, his analysis traces the continuing cycles of nationalist fervor, xenophobic zeal, and the ever-worsening ecocide of civilization. His words retain their fire decades after they were written.
