Thurs, February 21 Donald Nicholson-Smith, translator/editor of "Revolution of Everyday Life", by
Raoul Vaneigem. Originally published just months before the May 1968 upheavals in France,
Vaneigem's "The Revolution of Everyday Life" offered a critique of the "society of the spectacle"
from the point of view of individual experience. The English translation was first published by
Rebel Press of London in 1983. This new edition has been reviewed and corrected by the
translator, Donald Nicholson-Smith, and contains a new preface addressed to English-language
readers by Raoul Vaneigem.
