This book came due at the Library & I had to return it before finishing. The next member had reserved it & it was time. A pity since I had began writing a review for hopeful publication in the Anarchist Review of Books (Fifthestate.org) or someplace. If anybody has any insights or reactions to this one, I'm all ears. (Not a Spoiler Alert but..) Obvious reference points include Hakim Bey/Peter Lamborn Wilson's book on Piracy which was published by Autonomedia a few years back. That one is titled "Pirate Utopias: Moorish Crsairs & European Renegadoes"
"The knowledge structure of the capitalist world system is in just as big a crisis as it's apparatuses of power/accumulation. However their very nature renders knowledge structures more susceptible to free discussion, which creates an opportunity to exhaustively interpret the degree of the crisis in which science finds itself."
Beginning of chapter 2 (Introduction). This book is presented as Volume 3 of the Manifesto of the Democratic Civilization. Abdullah Ocalan also is saying in chapter one that " the another aim of these volumes was to clarify the nature of power and capitalist modernity."
I ordered this book through a local store affiliated with bookshop.org and no confirmation was received, nor any other communication. I recently went to a author appearance and book signing sponsored by the same store, but we had to leave after a little more than an hour, so didn't have time to ask what happened. Wish I had ordered directly from PM press instead. Just glancing at the e- book at the moment, on loan from Internet Archive.
