Immediatism, by Hakim Bey
AK Press, 1873176422, anti-copyright 1994

A collection of relatively short essays all circling around a specific subject: immediatism, in both senses of the word; both as immediate, now and without mediation. It’s a way of life that appeals to me, and likely to any other sensualists who find the stale repitition of pre-formed media dull.

You’re likely able to enjoy this work with only one dictionary at your side, though of courseit does still give you a lot to think about, and even more to put into action. The style is easy and more readily accessible, the suggestions and manifestos are more likely to become realized in a smaller environment. It’s become another book on my recommended reading list.
