Book DescriptionBringing together a decade's worth of AK Thompson's essays on the culture of revolt, Premonitions offers an engaged and engaging assessment of contemporary radical politics. Inspired by the writings of Walter Benjamin, Thompson combines scholarship and grassroots grit to address themes ranging from violence and representation to Romanticism and death. Whether uncovering the unrealized promise buried in mainstream cultural offerings or tracing an imperiled course toward the moment of reckoning, the essays in Premonitions are provocations set to spark debate and kindle fires in the night.
Editorial ReviewAK Thompson's meditations on love and insurrection provide crucial tools for untangling the neuroses that pervade our culture of revolt. From critical theory to Craigslist, Odysseus to Occupy, Premonitions challenges us to confront the world around us without becoming reconciled to a reality that debases us all. --Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook.
