Debord, Guy. Le Declin et la Chute de l’Economie Spectaculaire-Marchande.
Paris: Jean-Jacques Pauvert, December 1993. 40 p.; ill.; 18 x 12 cm; white cover with text in red and black
This iconic Situationist text provides an astute commentary on the Watts riots in Los Angeles. First published as an anonymous pamphlet (in English) in December 1965, it is then reprinted in the periodical Internationale Situationniste no.10 in March 1966. As an homage to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, Le Declin et la Chute is re-released in its first stand-alone edition by Jean-Jacques Pauvert in 1993 – this time around, the text is signed by its original author, Debord.
