Scope and Contents

A.I.S. Newman ( In Tom Jenks's 'A Priori' W. H. Auden's 'Journal of an Airman' meets the Fluxus of George Maciunas. These twentieth-century artistic aesthetics, or perspectives, are reinvigorated by the poet's discussion of something very new: the democratisation of information through the internet. But, this book raises the question: is one empowered or controlled by this information?This is a truly excellent read with much of the wit and energy of Fluxus. One gets the impression that something very special is emerging in this first incarnation of 'If P Then Q', and that in ten years time this tome will look as impressive on one's bookshelf as B. S. Johnson's The Unfortunates. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
