The Coming Insurrection

The Coming Insurrection is an eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe. Written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord — and with comparable elegance — it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors).

Publisher's Summary

The Coming Insurrection is an eloquent call to arms arising from the recent waves of social contestation in France and Europe. Written by the anonymous Invisible Committee in the vein of Guy Debord — and with comparable elegance — it has been proclaimed a manual for terrorism by the French government (who recently arrested its alleged authors).

One of its members more adequately described the group as "the name given to a collective voice bent on denouncing contemporary cynicism and reality". The Coming Insurrection is a strategic prescription for an emergent war-machine to "spread anarchy and live communism".

Written in the wake of the riots that erupted throughout the Paris suburbs in the fall of 2005 and presaging more recent riots and general strikes in France and Greece, The Coming Insurrection articulates a rejection of the official Left and its reformist agenda, aligning itself instead with the younger, wilder forms of resistance that have emerged in Europe around recent struggles against immigration control and the "war on terror".

Hot-wired to the movement of '77 in Italy, its preferred historical reference point, The Coming Insurrection formulates an ethics that takes as its starting point theft, sabotage, the refusal to work, and the elaboration of collective, self-organized forms-of-life. It is a philosophical statement that addresses the growing number of those — in France, in the United States, and elsewhere — who refuse the idea that theory, politics, and life are separate realms.

What the Critics Say

"[W]ithout a doubt the most thought-provoking radical text to be published in the past ten years. It deserves to be read and discussed." (New Statesman)

    "Yep a Rant!"

    Sorry, I have to agree with the other review here. I hope the invisible committee becomes the silent committee.

    "What a rant!"

    I think the people that wrote this have way too much time to sit around and stew about how their lives are. Sounds like they need to get a real job and a life.

    So this is the self absorbed, paranoid people that are trying to lead a revolt? You don't even have the guts to put your names on your work.
