Essay. In MILLENNIUM, Hakim Bey both sustains and expands the ideas of his groundbreaking work, THE TEMPORARY AUTONOMOUS ZONE. Here, Bey suggests that mere detachment from (or even outright rejection of) the monolith of global capital is not enough; that either we accept ourselves as the 'last humans,' or else we accept ourselves as the opposition. The book also contains a ...more

I probably read TAZ about ten years ago and sort of randomly started this after staring blankly at my bookshelf, wandering around the books. I hadn't realized how much he's coming out of the autonomist tradition, of squats, alternative culture, freaks, wingnuttery/diffuse irrationalism. He's writing after the fall of the wall and the end of cold war at time when it was possible to talk about being the third position to the dominant positions represented by the soviet bloc and the western powers. ...more

Better reasoned (and reasonable) than other "Hakim Bey" books, reading this one shortly after Debord's Society of the Spectacle and Vaneighem's Revolution of Everyday Life thoroughly set me in the anarchist camp. His argument that the Cold War was a pyrrhic victory for Western Democracies, whose power has been usurped by Global Capital, is spot on. If you read only one Peter Lamborn Wilson book, you'd do well to avoid the cooky ramblings and pederastic innuendo of T.A.Z. and pick up this one ins ...more

I Loved TAZ and Hakim Bey's Immediatism, but for the life of me this is one of the few books I ever read that I could not figure out for the life of me WHAT THE FUCK the author was going on about? Something to do with Walter Benjamin. H.B. claims not to be a post-modernist, but this writing was pretty damn close to obscurant post-modern bibble babble as one could get. Perhaps I'll try reading this again someday...

really about 3.5 stars... an interview and 4 essays....mostly pretty good, if somewhat dated. 15 years ago a call for "jihad" would have been read a little differently than now...also the end of the cold war, the end of history, and the ultimate triumph of capitalism must all be seen now in quite a different light than at the time when these essays were written...

I had the pleasure of meeting Peter Lamborn Wilson in the Garden of Delight anarchist bookstore in Dublin back in the early 1990's which sadly closed its doors. This book is his mental meanderings into anarchism, Sufi mysticism and high weirdness.

Finally finished, after a couple years picking it up and reading a little. Dense stuff, twists your brain linguistically, good anarchist philosophy, and this was only 96, wonder hows he improved since then

Always strangely worded and wordy but absolutely stunning and imaginative prose. his conclusions and ideas are profound, prophetic and entertaining, but honestly, sometimes he's really reaching...

Not my favorite HB, but thoroughly thought-provoking and often enjyably radical.
