Resurgence: Jonathan Leake, Radical Surrealism, and the Resurgence Youth Movement, 1964-1967



Resurgence is filled with photographs, zine pages, ephemera, and other fascinating documentation from the history of the Resurgence Youth Movement and Jonathan Leake’s personal archive. Much of this material has never been published before.

Edited by Abigail Susik, with essays by Penelope Rosemont, Maggie Wrigley Leake, Paul Leake, Sean Lovitt, and Abigail Susik, this 224-page book contains selections from all twelve issues of the rare, ultraleftist magazine “Resurgence”. Selected chapters of Jonathan Leake’s remarkable unpublished memoir, “Root and Branch: A Radical Sixties Odyssey” (1992) are also included — a very exciting addition given the historical importance of Leake’s chronicle.

Edition of 500, published by Eberhardt Press
