In a letter to Alexander Trocchi dated 12 October 1964, Debord complains about the translation of Michele Bernstein’s article: “As you might have guessed, our article in the September issue of the Times Literary Supplement was poorly translated. The editors missed out on two or three critical points” (see Correspondance Volume 2, pp.299-300). The last two sentences of Bernstein’s article are reproduced in Internationale Situationniste 10, p.83, in March 1966
Bernstein and Nash’s articles have been reproduced in An Endless Adventure…An Endless Passion…An Endless Banquet…A Situationist scrapbook (ICA/Verso, 1989). Bernstein’s text is available online at https://www.cddc.vt.edu/sionline/si/times.html
