Classic anarchist text by Hakim Bey about creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control. From Pirate Utopias to Nomadic Bands, Poetic Terrorism to Ontological Anarchy, Hakim Bey draws on history and philosophy to think through spatial and mental liberation.

"The TAZ springs from the historical development I call “the closure of the map.” 
The last bit of Earth unclaimed by any nation-state was eaten up in 1899. 
Ours is the first century without terra incognita, without a frontier."
