Description

   The Anarchist Cookbook, first published in 1971, is a book that contains instructions for the manufacture of explosives, rudimentary telecommunications phreaking devices, and other items.

The book also includes instructions for home manufacturing of illicit drugs, including LSD.

It was written by William Powell at the apex of the counterculture era in order to protest United States involvement in the Vietnam War

At the time of its publication, one Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) memo described The Anarchist Cookbook as “one of the crudest, low-brow, paranoiac writing efforts ever attempted.”

In 2009, the magazine Vice published a brief history of the book as well as excerpted recipes. The magazine’s associate network, VBS.tv, also broadcast a documentary on the subject.

In 2010, the FBI released the bulk of its investigative file on The Anarchist Cookbook

In 2007, a 17-year-old was arrested in Britain and faced charges under Terrorism Law in the UK for possession of this book, among other things.

He was cleared of all charges in October 2008, after arguing that he was a prankster who just wanted to research fireworks and smoke bombs.

More recently, in County Durham, UK in 2010, Ian Davison and his son were imprisoned under anti-terrorism laws for the manufacturing of ricin, and their possession of the Anarchist Cookbook, along with its availability, was noted by the authorities.

In 2013, renewed calls were made in the United States to ban this book, citing links to a school shooting in Colorado by Karl Pierson.
