Comprehensive anthology of key texts by members the first Situationist International, most of which originally appeared in the INTERNATIONALE SITUATIONNISTE review. Knabb's anthology remains to this day the definitive English anthology of S.I. writings. Includes canonical texts by Raoul Vaneigem, Guy Debord, and Ivan Chtcheglov, along with internal S.I. documents, texts from other journals, and a suite of papers from Paris during May 1968. Knabb writes in his introduction that the anthology was meant to "present a useful selection of situationist writings while at the same time illustrating the SI's origins and development." [Ford 35].
