The first half of the book consists of two new texts. The Joy of Revolution is a series of observations on the problems and possibilities of a global antihierarchical revolution. Beginning with a brief overview of the failure of Bolshevism and the inadequacy of reformism, it examines the pros and cons of a wide range of radical tactics, then concludes with some speculations on what a liberated society might be like.
Confessions of a Mild-Mannered Enemy of the State is largely concerned with Knabbs situationist activities, but it also includes reminiscences of the sixties counterculture and accounts of his Zen practice and other later ventures. The remainder of the book consists of a variety of earlier articles, leaflets and comics.
