An excellent collection of writings and essays by and about the Situationists that covers a lot of ground.

For my own tastes the critiques of urbanism, spatiality, and dérive were the most worthwhile sections.
Jeremy Wineberg
A good resource, but perhaps a bit too through for my purposes. The more I read Debord, the more stifling I find him. More interesting for me were the essay's about the SI, especially Tom McDonough's Situationist Space and Vincent Kauffman's Angels of Purity. Worthwhile introduction by Greil Marcus as well.

Overall a great collection of essays and pieces by Debord and Co. Some of it was published in October Magazine, which is really hard to find. Nevertheless essential reading for today's era.
