Attentat – the journal of the nihilist position. This is a journal intended to explore the collision between anarchist and nihilist ideas. The position itself is more about collision than about words. For too long we have suffered the limitations of words and identities that collapse into insignificance without gaining the corresponding heft of a weapon. This seemed to be ...more

This is a pretty spectacular book, and it would be great to see it gain more of a buzz.

The standout piece for me was "History as Decomposition," a thinking of Against His-Story, Against Leviathan through a situationist lens. I feel the piece gives me a deeper look at Perlman's book once we consider Civilization as a continuously decomposing entity that resurrects its parts only to decompose again.

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.
