Minimum quantity for "Anarchitexts" is 1.

A global mix of voices from the new "underground": engaged artists intervening in local struggles on the streets, media producers promoting technologies based on sharing and cooperation rather than privatization and competition, activists participating in global networks built through electronic democracies and decentralized forms of cooperation, and extraordinary people creating an alternative society through their everyday practices. This anthology collects essays and interviews on such topics as "Art on the Edge of Politics" and "Production of the Future". "Solidarity with the Context" by Janos Sugar, "XYZ of Net Activism" by Luther Blissett, "From Mini FM to Polymorphous Radio" by Tetsuo Kogawa, "Response to Tactical Media Manifesto" by Peter Lamborn Wilson, and "Autonomous Culture Factory" by Marko Vukovic. These are just some of over 50 articles included.
