Against His-Story, Against Leviathan! is a 1983 book by Fredy Perlman, for which he is best known.[1] It is a personal critical perspective on contemporary civilization and society. The work defined anarcho-primitivism for the first time,[2] and was a major source of inspiration for anti-civilization perspectives in contemporary anarchism, most notably on the thought of philosopher John Zerzan.[3] In 2006 the book was translated into French under the title Contre le Léviathan, contre sa légende[4] and into Turkish as Er-Tarih’e Karşı, Leviathan’a Karşı.[5]
