'It's hard to see how this book could be surpassed in rigor and scope. As its authors carefully unpack the complex manifold of situationism, readers begin to grasp again the political, aesthetic, philosophical, and cultural totality of consumer capitalism that the Situationists argued we can leave. This mid-twentieth-century critique and speculation remains an undeniable wonder' -- Simon Sadler, Professor of Design at the University of California, Davis and author of 'The Situationist City'
'Philosophy, critical theory, artistic practice, strategies and tactics of social contestation, transnational networks and internecine clashes all came together in the Situationist International. In this volume, new archival resources and a new generation of scholars point the way to a richer, more complete picture of the movement and its place in the 20th and 21st centuries' -- Kevin Repp, Curator of Modern European Books & Manuscripts at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
