A field manual by CrimethInc.

Downloaded from http://thepiratebay.org

\\\\\\\"Expect Resistance\\\\\\\" is not one but three books, each of which may be read as a complete work unto itself. The first book, printed in standard black ink, continues the inquiry into modern life and its discontents begun in Days of War, Nights of Love. Just as that book included improved versions of texts originally published between 1996 and 1999, this book draws on CrimethInc. material from 2000 to 2004, painstakingly refined and augmented with a great deal of new content.The second book, in red ink, is a composite account, related by three narrators, of the adventures and tribulations that inevitably ensue when people pursuing their dreams enter into conflict with the world as it is.

Together these comprise a third book, an exploration of the complex relationship between ideals and reality. Expect Resistance is a field manual for a field on which all manuals are useless, a meditation on individual transformation and collective resistance in disastrous times, and a masterpiece that raises the bar for radical publishing.

2007 text published by CrimethInc. Ex-Workers\\\\\\\' Collective.
Intertextual weaving of personal narrative and their unique brand of Anarchist theory.
ENTIRE BOOK. Scanned. mostly black and white.
Uploaded in protest against CrimethInc. Far East\\\\\\\'s primitive capitalist model of distribution and failure to live up to basic anarchist decency regarding Freedom of Information. If a project can\\\\\\\'t make money solely from donations and the exchange of real existing goods (the physical books) then that project doesn\\\\\\\'t deserve to exist and the power or influence it exists over radical communities is unjustly acquired.

scan useless, lacks red ink

Half this book is in red ink, half in black. This scan being in black and white renders the book largely unreadable, especially in the best parts. That's terrible.

Making things available for free is great, but if you don't care about the content enough to do a good job, it reflects poorly on you that you would act like you have the moral high ground. Provide meaningfully to the community, with humility. Don't just be a grandstanding jerk.

Great book, though.
