" Raoul Vaneigem’s Treatise on Etiquette for the Young Generations represents a refusal of representation and bureaucracy, along with the emphasis on autonomous desire, play and festivity. This book reflects the anarchistic impulse of the Situationist International and the events of May 1968. This edition will continue to make this important title accessible to a new "Young Generation", as well as offering a new introduction from Jason McQuinn (former publisher of Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed, which serialized the English translation before it was available in book form in the US) and an affordable price.
The moment of revolt, which means now, is hallowing out for us in the hard rock of our daily lives, days that miraculously retain the delicious colours and the dreamlike charm which - like an Aladdin’s cave, magical and prismatic in an atmosphere all its own - is inalienably ours. The moment of revolt is childhood rediscovered, time put to everyone’s use, the dissolution of the market, and the beginning of generalised self-management."
