From its auspicious beginnings in the summer of 1966 to the present, the Chicago Surrealist Group and the Surrealist Movement in the United States, which grew out of it -- have continued to foment an exhilarating whirlwind of revolt while playfully igniting the sparks of Poetry, Freedom and Love in the crucible of the Unfettered Imagination. In so doing, it has brightly illuminated the pathways of absolute divergence that define the intrinsically anarchist trajectory of the surrealist adventure.

Drawing on the full range of U.S. surrealist publications, from the original journal Arsenal/Surrealist Subversion to the very latest millennial communique from the front lines of the ongoing battle against miserabilism, this volume contains over 200 texts (more than two dozen appearing here for the first time) by more than fifty participants in the Surrealist Movement, making this the most comprehensive, diverse and lavishly illustrated compilation of American surrealist writings to have ever been assembled.

Editor Ron Sakolsky's provocative and far-ranging introduction explores the historical development of "Chicago Idea" surrealism as well as its current actuality.

Ron Sakolsky is also the co-editor of two other Autonomedia anthologies: Gone To Croatan: The Origins of North American Drop-Out Culture (with James Koehnline) and Sounding Off!: Music as Subversion/Resistance/Revolution (with Fred Ho).
