Beneath the Paving Stones: Situationists and the Beach, May 1968: Texts Collected by Dark Star
Edinburgh and San Francisco AK Press; Dark Star 2001 1902593383 / 9781902593388 Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
120 pp., illus., bib. notes; 20 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. "An anthology of the three classic Situationist pamphlets - 'The Poverty of Student Life,' 'Totality for Kids,' and 'The Decline and Fall of the Spectacular Commodity Economy,' plus an eyewitness account of the Paris May '68 events. Much of the Situ creed was produced in pamphlet form - and these three were crucial in creating the Situationist legend. Indeed, these works by Guy Debord, Raoul Vaneigem, and the Strasbourg Students were the most widely translated, distributed, and influential pamphlets of the Situationist International available in the 60s. Easier to read than Society of the Spectacle, and a provocatively seductive invitation to a life of freedom and revolt, this compendium offers the reader not only a concise introduction to the ideas of the Situationists, but also an insight into what Situationist material was readily available in the late 60s. Beneath The Paving Stones: Situationists And The Beach, in addition, includes numerous documents, photographs, poster art, and graffiti originating from Paris in 1968. A beautiful book - probably worth investing in a new coffee-table just to display it properly! As the Situationists continue to have an historical and contemporary relevance, we are proud to offer this anthology to young people of all ages who refuse to knuckle down." - Publisher.

Complete Cinematic Works: Scripts, Stills, Documents
Oakland, CA AK Press 2003 1902593731 / 9781902593739 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xi, 258 pp., illus., filmography, biblio., index; 23 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Guy Debord (1931-1994) was the most influential member of the Situationist International, the avant-garde group that triggered the May 1968 revolt in France. His book The Society of the Spectacle is considered the most important theoretical work of the 20th century. But while Debord's written work is some of the most notorious in the world of political and cultural radicality, deemed 'the cornerstone cliche of postmodernism,' his films have until now remained tantalizingly inaccessible. After being withdrawn from circulation for nearly two decades (by Debord himself, to call attention to the 1984 assassination of the producer of the films, Gerard Lebovici), all six films were featured in a special 'Guy Debord -Retrospective' at the 2001 Venice Film Festival and re-released in France in 2002. The most famous of the films is Debord's cinematic adaptation of his own book, The Society of the Spectacle. As passages from the book are read in voiceover, the text is illuminated, via direct illustration or various types of ironic contrast, by clips from Russian and Hollywood features (Battleship Potemkin, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Johnny Guitar, etc.), TV commercials, softcore porn, newsreels and documentary footage. Some of the other films evoke Debord's adventures in the bohemian underworld of Paris during the 1950s, and in others Debord attacks the film medium itself, directly challenging the viewer by critiquing the traditional separation of spectacle and spectator. Ken Knabb's translation of Debord's Complete Cinematic Works accompanies the long-awaited English versions of these films, which will be coming to the United States in 2003. The scripts are illustrated with 62 stills, and Debord's own annotations help elucidate the subtleties of these astonishing works, which are like nothing else in cinema history. / Guy Debord was the founder of the Situationist International, the notorious avant-garde group that triggered the May 1968 revolt in France. His most notable work, 'The Society of the Spectacle,' has been translated into 15+ languages and has sold over 30,000 copies in English to date. He committed suicide (suffering from a debilitating illness) in 1994. Ken Knabb translated and published the 'Situationist International Anthology,' selling over 14,000 copies." - Publisher.
