Essay Anthology. Organized in the summer of 1966 with the support of Andre Breton and the Surrealist Groups of France and other countries, the Chicago group quickly found supporters in other cities. As they expanded from coast to coast, the Chicago Surrealist Group became a significant factor in the global renewal of revolutionary thought and action that began in the Sixties. This book is a compendium of collective declarations—texts in which surrealists as a group have intervened in particular political or cultural affairs and controversies. The 100-plus tracts, leaflets and other writings collected here document the first tumultuous decade of organized surrealism in this country.
