https://against-leviathan.com/ has a HTML and a PDF of AHAL, with a few corrections not in the anarchist library PDF.

Anyhow, in my opinion AHAL is the ultimate text, and the best starter text for people. That's why I made that domain, handy for bringing sharpies to bar and pub toilets, and similar places.

Second I would recommend the Against Civilization compendium that JZ made. It's very good in that it has a broad selection of writings, so people can get an overview over some of the important writers (it includes the Sahlins must-read: The Original Affluent Society, which I would definitely have put on this list if it weren't in this compendium).

Thirdly I recommend Origins, the John Zerzan reader. The essays contained within are available all over the place online, but it's a very nice and compact book with all the classic origins essays, Agriculture (where symbolic culture "wins out"), That Thing We Do (on reification), and others.

(Against Civilization's around online, e.g. https://archive.org/stream/AgainstCivili...n_djvu.txt & https://libcom.org/library/against-civil...ohn-zerzan — and the book is usually very cheap. I didn't check too carefully, but I don't think those links are the enlarged (most recent) version of the book.)
I have been called both Alex and Са́ша numerous times by numerous people — usually I understand that they're talking to me. :)

I can adjust the thread title. Are you not able to do it yourself though? I thought users were able to change the topic by editing the opening post.
