What do Bill Gates, Milton Freidman, William F. Buckley, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Sylvester Stallone, Canadian Premier Jean Chretien, Swedish King Carl Gustaf, Ronald McDonald, Timothy Leary, Eldridge Cleaver, Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling, World Trade Organization Director Renato Ruggiero and Andy Warhol have in common? They've all been pied by the Biotic Baking Brigade or its cohorts around the world. The fine art of landing a freshly-baked delicacy in the face of the reactionary, pompous, and otherwise deserving has a long and venerable tradition. As a way of highlighting a particular cause, gaining often spectacular media attention, or merely bringing the lofty down a crust or two, there is nothing quite so fine as a cream pie.

This anthology cooks up an intoxicating mélanges of history, analysis, tactics, and recipes for this most edible of the political direct action techniques. Tips from experienced pie-ers on the best ways to slip into a shareholders meeting unobserved—ammunition in hand—and on blending deliciously tried and tested recipes of delectable vegan pastries (perfect for launching, or dining upon). Generously sprinkled with some of the punchiest, wittiest communiqués explaining just why those responsible for environmental destruction might be in line for their just desserts and the theory behind why pie-ing—why now.

"It's an assault on public officials. It's an assault on government. It should not be condoned." —Michael Yaki, San Francisco Supervisor

"Is well placed humor one of the best protest tactics there is? The proof is in the pudding! Or should I say—pie cream." —Jello Biafra
