Anarchy in the Age of Dinosaurs lays out a new understanding of political anarchy, one that aims to replace the mass movement with a scrappy multitude of mutineers, mad scientists, sprawling shanties, and thieves in the night. The first edition went out of print in 2009 when the US government stole every remaining copy and all the digital backups with a sealed warrant. Authorship of the book was used in the government's statements to the media as to why the mysterious raid was performed. But look, now it's back!

The Curious George Brigade says, "By dinosaurs, we mean Capitalism, The State, Hierarchy, and the countless other guises worn by Authority. What shall come after the dinosaurs! Championing decentralization, chaos, mutual aid and butterfly-wings among other things, this book brings to life the tactics and strategies for an effective resistance against the dinosaurs today." They describe their nonsectarian, flexible, and inclusive DIY communitarian approach as "folk anarchy... a name, however arbitrary, for an infinite multitude of actions taken to erode the constraints of authority." They believe that there "is no secret for revolution, no grand dialectic, no master theory." Revolutions "are as perpetual as the changing of the seasons."
