Ludic Subversion Against Spectacular Capitalism

Provoked by Debord's statement that his game (Kriegspiel) was the most significant of his accomplishments, an international group of artists, activists, and academics came together to form this book, an exploration of Debord's use of the Napoleonic battlefield to propagate a Situationist analysis, as well as other military simulations, like H.G. Wells' Little Wars, Chris Peer's Reds Versus Reds, and Richard Borg's Commands and Colors.

Bringing together historical research on avant garde artists, political revolutionaries, and military theorists, with five years of public performances, this book provides a strategic and tactical manual for overthrowing 21st century neoliberal capitalism
