Recipes for Disaster: An Anarchist Cookbook
Recipes for Disaster comes on the heels of the CrimethInc collective’s notorious first book, Days of War, Nights of Love. This 624-page manual complements the romance and idealism of the earlier work, with both practical information and instruction. Note that it's "an" anarchist cookbook, rather than "the" anarchist cookbook (of which there are actually two, one about making bombs and the other about making soup and community). This book is about cooking up a movement, and understanding the terminology and landscape of what's out there, including topics like coalition building, affinity groups, mental health, sabotage, squatting, wheat-pasting, and more. It's illustrated. It's annotated. It's got first person stories and technical recipes and diagrams. It's got a great preface. All told, this is your one stop shop for building a fearsome career of direct action against oppression on all fronts.
