Synopsis
An anthropology of the Situationist influence on contemporary anarchism, "The Old World is Behind You" places the debates around Situationism in context and examines their milieu. By examining in close ethnographic detail the texts and practices of post-Situationist anarchism, this book traces that oppositional impulse through to today's movements. Combining carefully selected, hard-to-find, documents with first-hand experience and interviews with people in the post-Situationist milieu, Goaman's work shows the lived world of Situationist-themed anarchism. Building on traditional anthropological methodology, this book also develops an important critique of the way anthropology is done and points to ways in which an anarchist-influenced anthropology can arise.
