Recipes for Disaster: An Anarchist Cookbook

Recipes for Disaster: An Anarchist Cookbook

by CrimethInc

Three years in the making, Recipes for Disaster is the long-awaited follow-up to the CrimethInc. collective’s notorious first book, Days of War, Nights of Love. This 624-page manual complements the romance and idealism of that earlier work with practical information and instruction. Over thirty collectives collaborated in testing, composing, and editing the book’s 62 sections, which range from Affinity Groups, Coalition Building, and Mental Health to Sabotage, Squatting, and Wheatpasting. These are illustrated with extensive technical diagrams and first-hand accounts, and prefaced with a thorough discussion of the diverse roles direct action can play in social transformation. If you’re looking for a tactical handbook for revolutionary action, look no further.

This book is, by far, the greatest book I have EVER picked up. It's full of nifty manuals on how to do things to abolish capitalism, get through some rough shit, etc. HIGHLY recomended to every person of all ages in every political party.

This is Crimethinc's answere to anyone who wondered where to start after reading Days.
This book is overflowing with recipes that are not only useful but also a lot of fun. Something new for anyone, no matter how informed or creative.

This is wonderful. CrimethInc takes a lot of crap for being vague and over-romantic, for being wishy-washy. This should silence the nay-sayers. Indispensable to anyone who might benefit from concretely living their dreams into being.
