from Guy Debord

To Anselm Jappe
Thursday, 2 December 1993
Dear Sir:

Thank you for your book,[1] received yesterday. I read it with interest. I appreciated its [high] level of thought, its information and the comprehensive sympathy that it has for me: thus, it extraordinarily distinguishes itself from all the other texts concerning this subject.

Naturally, Lebovici's successors [Editions Ivrea] have not followed your thesis for the last two years! This quite confirms for me the obviousness of my preliminary judgment of them.

I now send you my most recent book[2] and the recent re-edition of Memoires: you will find in them precisions or confirmations of several of the points that you discuss.

I would love to receive your thesis and one or two more copies of the book at this address.

Quite cordially,
Guy Debord
