Subject: [postanarchism] Lewis Call: "Postmodern Anarchism"


There is a new book out called "Postmodern Anarchism"
by Lewis Call - unfortunately, like Saul Newman's book
it is extremely expensive and there does not seem to
be a paperback version. Try the library. Anyone have
this guy's email address? I want to pitch him for the
postanarchism anthology and see if he is interested.

 Something for Everyone, May 1, 2003 
Reviewer: from San Luis Obispo, CA United States You
don't need to know much about postmodernism or
anarchism to understand this book - but if you like
The Matrix, cyberpunk, and/or philosophy, it's a great
read!

This book is about seeing things from a different
perspective, and learning a few of the ways science
fiction authors like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling
have influenced our society. 

I recommend this book for people who are looking to
learn a little bit about why authors write the things
they write.

 Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception, 1945
