The Idler 39 (Spring 2007) Lie Back and Protest

by Edited by Tom Hodgkinson
£10.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2007)

The Idler 39 (Spring 2007) Lie Back and Protest by Edited by Tom Hodgkinson We are all agreed that there's a lot to complain about in contemporary society. Boredom, exploitation, an explosion of legislation and interference with our everyday freedoms: central government and big business seem to make life more difficult with each month that passes.

But do we really need to take to the streets to protest? Or would a more effective form of resistance be to take to our beds and quietly recreate our own lives? In this issue of The Idler, we reflect and philosophise on the notion of protest.

The Idler 39 includes:

* A chapter on News From Nowhere and a selection of our favourite protest books!

* An extract from DAN KIERANís new book, I Fought The Law;

* JAY GRIFFITHS on missionaries and cannibals;

* Conversations with PROF RONALD HUTTON of Bristol University, expert on merriment,

* and GREEN of Scritti Pollitti;

* plus CORINNE MAIER on a trio of French anti-work filmmakers.

We ask whether there is any point at all in going on anti-war protests or indeed going to university.

And thereís writing from Penny Rimbaud, Jock Scot, Robert Twigger and Albert Cossery.
