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


I just requested a copy through my local university library.
The references to cyberpunk makes me a little wary - but,
hey those old 3133t memes never seem to go away - but
it should be interesting to see some - presumably positive -
treatment of Baudrillard.

I should be able to give some sort of a review in a week
or so.
