Fourier enjoys the honor of being the first thinker to push Rousseau to the logical conclusion of a complete condemnation of Civilization. Not only did he blame it for what we call Capitalism, he also saw it as the source of the evil of Work as alienation (to use Marx s term). The fact that we must labor at what we do not love in order to make a living defines the essence of Civilization s primal error.

This Remarkable book, written soon after the French revolution, has traditionally been considered one of the founding documents of socialism. It introduces the best-known and most extraordinary utopia written in the last two centuries. Charles Fourier was among the first to formulate a right to a minimum standard of life.

This is the first new selection and translation in seventy years from the massive writings of one of the most provocative of 19th century thinkers. Like most social theorists whose ideas have retained any grip at all on man's imagination, Charles Fourier (1772-1837) has often been pressed into service to suit the purposes of disparate social movements. The Nineteenth Century Fourier, for example, became a respectable and upright socialist through his disciples. The Fourier of a Marxist...

Previously published in Spanish and Portuguese, it makes the case for neo-primitivism, or green anarchy, as the best tool for activists battling mega-corporate globalization. Written in terse, pointed prose, the book thoughtfully analyzes the deficiencies of postindustrial culture and explores the best human and plant-centered alternatives for dealing with them. "If we...

It is not the technical instrument we use which qualifies an action as violent or not, but rather its perspective in the confrontation with the class enemy. To employ armed struggle means essentially to be ready to respond to State violence and exploitation blow for blow at every level.

At the same time it must be capable of indicating to all the exploited...

An introduction to anarcho-nihilism becomes tales of resistance in the Nazi concentration camps, almost all of which failed (in the sense that the resisters died), and for which there was never much hope that they could do anything but fail, which are then analyzed in light of anarcho-nihilism.

Son of Joseph Labadie (of the famed Labadie Collection in University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), Laurence Labadie out-distanced his father as a thinker and a polemicist, Laurence had the good luck to have been in consistent contact with some of the best writing by the American individualist anarchist tradition. Through a series of ingenious counterpoints and elaborations he managed to make of it something entirely new and much more threatening. The vanished anarchism of this deep-rooted radical...

A collection of articles--ranging from the practical to the theoretical to the poetic--on doing without work. These pieces postulate scenarios of this society without work (including the use of robots to do what humans are currently needed for), describe the desirability of no-work for each of us individually, explore how work is a bad thing both personally and culturally, and offer suggestions on how to do less of it while holding down a job, as well as how to keep an appropriate relationship...

We are speaking of the need to avoid the tragedy of the Red Army Faction just as much as the tragedy of Occupy, the need to abandon symbolic terrains of engagement, in which we struggle against unspecific enemies on abstract political terrain through the elaboration of our passions. We are speaking of the necessity of grounding our understanding of what we are doing, separate from that of why we are doing it, in the space in which things actually occur, in the here and now, and to make the...

The second Insurgencies journal starts off with a bang, naming much of our activity (and moralizing) as militant activism. It does this in the context of Letter to the Anarchist Galaxy, a provocation that we can all reflect on. Insurgency 2 asks for the construction of new projects outside of old frameworks and logics. It offers little in the way of answers and instead attempts to ask better questions. It continues from the previous issue with engaging questions of strategy ("No Time Like...

Hostis is a negation. It emerges devoid of ethics, lacking any sense of democracy, and without a care for pre-figuring anything. Fed up with the search for a social solution to the present crisis, it aspires to be attacked wildly and painted as utterly black without a single virtue. In thought, Hostis is the construction of incommensurability that figures politics in formal asymmetry to the powers that be. In action, Hostis is an exercise in partisanship – speaking in a tongue made only for...

Negation is important to Tiqqun. However, negation only creates movement. Negation is opposition and opposition is not enough. The insurrection is interesting as a negation--it implies rupture--but the rupture needs something else, it needs to create its own temporality. This temporality can be that of the communes, but if the communes represent the outside that moves inside, how can these dialectical realities be interconnected? Tiqqun defends desertion, but deserting means fleeing. Thus there...

A scathing, witty, well-written, and partisan response by anonymous European insurrectionists, to the Tiqqun text To Our Friends specifically and also to the Invisible Committee and Tiqqun in general. While some of the critique is distinctly European, by and to people who have interacted on the streets and in each others' lives, the criticism is also aimed at and quite meaningful to those in the US who attempt to follow the model of the French folks in Tarnac.

For many readers the first question they may ask upon picking up Atassa is "Where is the anarchy in this?" This is not the anarchism of an evolutionary (or revolutionary) transformation of this cold, bureaucratic world into a nicer, better world. It isn't about ideas. It is about something a lot more uncomfortable. It begins in the moment when Industrial Society and Its Future was translated into Spanish. The premise of that writing, much like the eco-extremist movement that Atassa...

In the years following 1968, a number of people involved in the most radical aspects of the French general strike felt the need to reflect on their experiences and to relate them to past revolutionary endeavors. This meant studying previous attempts and theories, namely those of the post-1917 German-Dutch and Italian Communist Left. The original essays included here were first written between 1969 and 1972 and circulated amongst left communist and worker circles. But France was not the only...

Huye, Hombre, Huye (Run, Man, Run) is the autobiography of Xosé Tarrío González. His story travels from the boarding school to the reformatory and then to prison. Due to additional punishments, Xosé was never released from prison, and instead spent the rest of his life fighting desperately to escape by any means necessary. This is the first-hand account of one man's refusal to accept the legitimacy of the privileged's judgement of the less privileged, a story of collective struggle against...

Originally conceived as a special Semiotext(e) issue on homosexuality at the end of the 70s, "Polysexuality" quickly evolved into a more complex and iconoclastic project whose intent was to do away with recognized genders altogether, considered far too limitative. The project landed somewhere between humor, anarchy, science-fiction, utopia and apocalypse. In the few years that it took to put it together, it also evolved from a joyous schizo concept to a darker, neo-Lacanian...

Lyotard is considered one of the most brilliant and influential of French post-structuralist thinkers. Published in 1974 by Minuit, Économie libidinale is, of all his work to date, the most creative in its mode of writing and in its theorizing: a stunning, dense, brilliant piece in which Lyotard, ranging from Marxist and Freudian theory to contemporary arts, argues that political economy is charged with passions and, reciprocally, that passions are infused with the political. Lyotard discusses...

The views held by Kaneko Fumiko are remarkable for a young woman of her time. She was hardly twenty, had a limited education, and had grown up in an atmosphere in which patriotism and loyalty to the emperor were viewed as the moral core of Japanese life. Not only is it remarkable that she formulated such a heretical social and political philosophy, but her refusal to grovel before the authorities is even more extraordinary. She refused to cower before the prosecutors and judges, and she...

"The war machine is the motor of the social machine; the primitive social being relies entirely on war, primitive society cannot survive without war. The more war there is, the less unification there is, and the best enemy of the State is war. Primitive society is society against the State in that it is society-for-war." - from The Archeology of Violence Anthropologist and ethnographer Pierre Clastres was a major influence on Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus, and his...
