bolo’boloArdent and Autonomedia have teamed up to bring the most important anarchist utopia (that is neither anarchist or utopian) back into print. If this doesn’t live on your bookshelf then it is arguable that anything lives there at all!

Ardent say……


We are wildly excited to be able to offer this book again (it’s been out of print for far too long)!

bolo’bolo was originally printed in Germany in 1983, half as a joke. Fittingly for some of us, it is still the best anarchist utopian vision we have ever read, since it gives full reign to both people’s individual autonomy and to our need to be part of a group.

If you find the word “imagination” or “creativity” coming up in your conversations (or, conversely, if you find yourself thinking a lot about being bored or stifled), if you like science fiction, if you don’t think Parecon would work because of something other than the economics of it, this is a book to check out. As always, there are weak points in this book, but the good parts so far outweigh them that it’s hard to even remember what the bad parts are.

This edition comes with a new 30th anniversary introduction, acknowledging some of the changes (and lack of them 🙁 ) that have occurred and is a joint publication with Ardent and Autonomedia.
