Scarce first edition, one of 750 copies. Discussion of the group "Contradiction" (and publisher of an eponymous journal), founded and dissolved by Knabb and others in Berkeley from 1971-1972. "The history of Contradiction cannot be separated from the history of what it undertook to criticize: the 'movement' and the 'counter-culture' in the United States. The ambiguities in those at once real and spectacular entities were reflected in the quandaries we found ourselves in in our year long wresling with the project [sic]." [Ford 184].
