View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In this small and rich text, one of the authors of Nihilist Communism introduces an anti-political perspective in the form of letters, essays, and dialogs. I think where the book is most successful is in its refusal of a defined revolutionary politics - it articulates a specific rejection of received political forms that tend to lapse into disputes of ownership of those forms by very small groups of individuals who are themselves defined by unexamined allegiances. I think the book expresses the potential for other modes of organising and other definitions of success beyond that of "sell the party, build the paper." In this sense, it does not offer a set of arguments concerning what is or what must be the revolutionary structure so much as suggest a framework for assessing the claims of such structures. An excellent review of species being is available here: http://www.metamute.org/editorial/articles/burdened-absence-billions>.
