Auteur: Becker-Ho, Alice & Guy Debord
Titel: A game of war
First published in 1987, this running commentary with diagrams, by Alice Becker-Ho and Guy Debord, of a war game of their own devising, saw its initial print-run pulped on Debord's instructions in 1991 and consequently became a Situationist rarity. The rules were explicitly designed so as to reduce the elements of warfare to their most universally applicable basics, and the interaction of the two opponents, as described in the course of 55 pairs of move and response, is portrayed in a similarly pared-down and immediate style. Minimal apparatus, and a few pages of related notes found amongst Debord's papers, complete the book as it appears in Donald Nicholson-Smith's commanding translation.
