First published in 1974, Leaving The 20th Century was the first collection of Situationist writing in English. Chris Gray, its editor, was himself a member of the SI. Long out of print, it has gained an enormous reputation. This new, lavish, oversize edition keeps the original provocativeness, in easy translations, along with SI's cut and paste graphics, poster-art, and cartoons. It stands as a remarkable, and eminently accessible, introduction to a remarkable (and oft-times superficially, at least, inaccessible) revolutionary project. As we stand at the gates of the 21st century, it is time for a new generation of readers to take up this remarkable book.
