Reviews

"White has the courage, rare in our time, to associate the right and the good explicitly with the beautiful." --Mark Greif, author of Against Everything

"White's provocative title poses a challenge. He's saying political reformism offers modest remedies, at best, to mitigate the catastrophe upon us. And he says it with a range of insights--from Wordsworth to Adorno by way of Agnes Varda. Curtis writes with assurance of his sources, but far removed from a pedantic style." --Bernard Marszalek, CounterPunch "Reminds us that there are alternatives to the status quo. And, above all, we can draw at least some hope from White's impassioned assertion that 'we are free to do something other than collaborate in our own destruction.'" --Eric J. Iannelli, Times Literary Supplement "If White is suggesting some sort of Dada-infused anarcho-successionist movement, I'll donate a million dollars to his inauguration committee." --Mark Leyner, author of Gone With The Mind "An intensely satisfying reconception of cult, culture, and counterculture. White's call to kindle a spirit of impertinence and improvisation, to refuse spectatorial politics and 'mass media sludge, ' is nothing if not timely. If you think the counterculture is merely a shrink-wrapped product of The Sixties(TM), then you need to read this book."
--Peter Richardson, author of No Simple Highway: A Cultural History of the Grateful Dead

"Curtis White's writing cracked me open like an egg, and challenged me to look beyond the parameters of my own sense of what cultural resistance really is. If you think you're a rebel, read this book, and think again. Read this important book and cleanse your filter. Open a window and fall through the floor. Smile with that other eye. Be impertinent." --William Rivers Pitt, author of House of Ill Repute
