Leaving the 20th Century: The Incomplete Work of the Situationist International

by Christopher Gray (editor & translator) - £9.90  Rebel Press (1998)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780946061150 | ISBN 10: 0946061157

Published in 1974 Leaving the 20th Century was the first collection of Situationist writing in English. Chris Gray, its editor, was himself a member of Situationist International. Long out of print, it has gained an enormous reputation. The search for a 'Northwest Passage' from the banal tyranny of the modern bourgeois order into the 'world that has never been' was signposted most clearly by the Situationists. Through a thousand acts of refusal and rebellion the route is revealed. The task was simple: to 'reconstruct' life itself.
