RevolutionA Reader

 - Revolution
A subjective selection of annotated texts by various authors about revolution.
Revolution: A Reader is less a collection and more, quite literally, a conversation about revolution. Annotations from Lisa Robertson and Matthew Stadler—composed simultaneously and in response to one another—fill the margins of this 1200-page book, unfolding in a kind of web of argument that stitches across time and texts to make a unified, new thing: a reader.
Matthew Stadler (born 1959) is a writer and editor living in Portland, Oregon. He has written four novels, and compiled four anthologies dealing with literature and public life. His essays have been published in magazines and museum catalogs around the world, and focus on subjects including architecture, city planning, urban sprawl, or the future of publishing.
>Lisa Robertson (born 1961) is a Canadian poet and essayist living in France. Her books of poetry include Debbie: An Epic, The Men, Lisa Robertson's Magenta Soul Whip and Rousseau's Boat. Her current projects include collaborations with artists that involve video work, sound recording and exhibitions.
