Jonathan Bowden's Blood Back in Print
Jonathan Bowden's Blood is now available, after being out of print for over twenty years.
Blood covers a wide range of topics, including Western Marxism and Louis Althusser, the psychology of Satanism, National Socialism, the conduct of war, virtual reality, the adoption within the art world of Left-wing norms, the Situationist International, Stuart Home, Wyndham Lewis, and the tensions between art and totalitarian politics. The book ends with brief commentaries on then topical events: the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 and the death of British artist Francis Bacon. This is not an essay in any conventional sense, but rather a succession of fervid and unpredictable snapshots that accrete into a panoramic overview of Western civilisation in the 20th century.
