1 1492–1992: The Legacy of Columbus (PM Audio)Zinn, Howard PM Press 1604865016 / 9781604865011 Audiobook CD

New 

1604865016 Discussing the legacy of Columbus, including 500 years of indigenous resistance, ?bothers the defenders of Western civilization, those people who have benefited from Western civilization, or who think they will benefit from it in some way. They are bothered by the fact that more and more Americans want to look at what happened then from a different point of view. Because we?ve been looking at it from one point of view for all these hundreds of years, looking at slavery from a white point of view, at Columbus from a white point of view, at women and the issue of sexual equality from the male point of view, looking at history from very specific, limited points of view. People have begun to look at history from the point of view of those people who have been invisible, overlooked, oppressed.? ?Howard Zinn, from the CD. In this instant classic, recorded on the eve of the quincentennial, legendary historian Howard Zinn returns to the themes he popularized in his masterful A People?s History of the United States?how we interpret history, and what that tells us about the struggles of the vast majority of folks typically written out of the narrative. With his trademark wit, erudition, and generosity, he stands history on its head, to better illuminate, understand, and act upon the past, present, and future.

Conant has an ear for story, poetry, and wonder; his new telling of the Zapatista struggle is full of delights. Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved "Conant's engrossing book distills critical lessons about the Zapatistas' use of storytelling, spectacle and truly revolutionary marketing. Whether you're already deeply immersed in Zapatismo or new to this profoundly important social movement, A Poetics of Resistance is essential reading." Patrick Reinsborough, cofounder of smartMeme "Ivan Illich once said: 'Through arguments you can only come to conclusions. Only stories make sense. ' Near the end of his life, Ivan also said that only a poetic language can express today what we need to say. Considering the current challenges and risks, a fresh, poetic look at the Zapatistas, to clear our vision, is badly needed. This is a useful book for those looking for sense in these dark times." Gustavo Esteva, founder of Universidad de la Tierra in Oaxaca, Mexico Zapatistas' famous "Ya basta! " enough already! was the first uttering of a new story: a story about unbinding the ties of official history, uncovering buried seeds of popular resistance, and revealing the glimmerings of a truly insurgent modernity. Combining narrative history, literary criticism, ethnography, and media analysis, A Poetics of Resistance provides a refreshing take on Mexico's Zapatista movement by examining the means, meanings, and mythos behind the Zapatista image. first "postmodern revolution" presented itself to the world through a complex web of propaganda in every available medium: the colorful communiqu?s of Subcomandante Marcos, the ski masks, uniforms, dolls, murals, songs, and weapons both symbolic and real. By proliferating a profound and resonant set of myths, symbols, and grand historical gestures calculated to reflect their ideologies, organizing methodologies, and cultural values, the Zapatistas helped set into motion a global uprising, and the awareness that behind this uprisi.

7 Accompanying: Pathways to Social ChangeLynd, Staughton PM Press 1604866667 / 9781604866667 PAPERBACK

New 

1604866667 ~NEW. No DJ, as issued. Trade Paperback. Brand new; satisfaction guaranteed. In Accompanying, Staughton Lynd distinguishes two strategies of social change. The first, characteristic of the 1960s Movement in the United States, is ?organizing.? The second, articulated by Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, is ?accompaniment.? The critical difference is that in accompanying one another the promoter of social change and his or her oppressed colleague view themselves as two experts, each bringing indispensable experience to a shared project. Together, as equals, they seek to create what the Zapatistas call ?another world.? Staughton Lynd applies the distinction between organizing and accompaniment to five social movements in which he has taken part: the labor and civil rights movements, the antiwar movement, prisoner insurgencies, and the movement sparked by Occupy Wall Street. His wife Alice Lynd, a partner in these efforts, contributes her experience as a draft counselor and advocate for prisoners in maximum-security confinement.

9 Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy, and the Common Ground Collectivecrow, scott PM Press 1604860774 / 9781604860771 PAPERBACK

New 

1604860774 When both levees and governments failed in New Orleans in the Fall of 2005, scott crow headed into the political storm, co-founding a relief effort called the Common Ground Collective. In the absence of local government, FEMA, and the Red Cross, this unusual volunteer organization, based on ?solidarity not charity,? built medical clinics, set up food and water distribution, and created community gardens. They also resisted home demolitions, white militias, police brutality and FEMA incompetence side by side with the people of New Orleans. Crow?s vivid memoir maps the intertwining of his radical experience and ideas with Katrina?s reality, and community efforts to translate ideals into action. It is a story of resisting indifference, rebuilding hope amidst collapse, and struggling against the grain. Black Flags and Windmills invites and challenges all of us to learn from our histories, and dream of better worlds. And gives us some of the tools to do so.

11 Capital and Its Discontents: Conversations with Radical Thinkers in a Time of Tumult (Spectre); PM Press 160486334X / 9781604863345 PAPERBACK

New 

160486334X Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, and the planet is thawing. Yet many people are still grasping to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. Into the breach come the essential insights of Capital and Its Discontents, which cut through the gristle to get to the heart of the matter about the nature of capitalism and imperialism, capitalism?s vulnerabilities at this conjuncture?and what can we do to hasten its demise. Through a series of incisive conversations with some of the most eminent thinkers and political economists on the Left?including David Harvey, Ellen Meiksins Wood, Mike Davis, Leo Panitch, Tariq Ali, and Noam Chomsky?Capital and Its Discontents illuminates the dynamic contradictions undergirding capitalism and the potential for its dethroning. The book challenges conventional wisdom on the Left about the nature of globalization, neoliberalism and imperialism, as well as the agrarian question in the Global South. It probes deeply into the roots of the global economic meltdown, the role of debt and privatization in dampening social revolt, and considers capitalism?s dynamic ability to find ever new sources of accumulation?whether through imperial or ecological plunder or the commodification of previously unpaid female labor. The Left luminaries in Capital and Its Discontents look at potential avenues out of the mess?as well as wrong turns and needless detours?drawing lessons from the history of post-colonial states in the Global South, struggles against imperialism past and present, the eternal pendulum swing of radicalism, the corrosive legacy of postmodernism, and the potentialities of the radical humanist tradition. At a moment when capitalism as a system is more reviled than ever, here is an indispensable toolbox of ideas for action by some of the most brilliant thinkers of our times.

13 Creating a Movement with Teeth: A Documentary History of the George Jackson Brigade; PM Press 1604862238 / 9781604862232 PAPERBACK

New 

1604862238 Bursting into existence in the Pacific Northwest in 1975, the George Jackson Brigade claimed 14 pipe bombings against corporate and state targets, as many bank robberies, and the daring rescue of a jailed member. Combining veterans of the prisoners' women?s, gay, and black liberation movements, this organization was also ideologically diverse, consisting of both communists and anarchists. Concomitant with the Brigade's extensive armed work were prolific public communications. In more than a dozen communiqu?s and a substantial political statement, they sought to explain their intentions to the public while defying the law enforcement agencies that pursued them. Collected in one volume for the first time, Creating a Movement with Teeth makes available this body of propaganda and mediations on praxis. In addition, the collection assembles corporate media profiles of the organization?s members and alternative press articles in which partisans thrash out the heated debates sparked in the progressive community by the eruption of an armed group in their midst. Creating a Movement with Teeth illuminates a forgotten chapter of the radical social movements of the 1970s in which diverse interests combined forces in a potent rejection of business as usual in the United States.

New 

1944869085 Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. Earthlight Books is a family owned and operated, independent bookstore serving Walla Walla, Washington since 1973. Cypherpunks are activists who advocate the widespread use of strong cryptography (writing in code) as a route to progressive change. Julian Assange, the editor-in-chief of and visionary behind WikiLeaks, has been a leading voice in the cypherpunk movement since its inception in the 1980s. Now, in what is sure to be a wave-making new book, Assange brings together a small group of cutting-edge thinkers and activists from the front line of the battle for cyber-space to discuss whether electronic communications will emancipate or enslave us. Among the topics addressed are: Do Facebook and Google constitute ?the greatest surveillance machine that ever existed,? perpetually tracking our location, our contacts and our lives? Far from being victims of that surveillance, are most of us willing collaborators? Are there legitimate forms of surveillance, for instance in relation to the ?Four Horsemen of the Infopocalypse? (money laundering, drugs, terrorism and pornography)? And do we have the ability, through conscious action and technological savvy, to resist this tide and secure a world where freedom is something which the Internet helps bring about?

16 Dispersing Power: Social Movements as Anti-State ForcesZibechi, Raúl AK Press 2010 1849350116 / 9781849350112 PAPERBACK

New 

1849350116 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Pacific Northwest Independent Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 174 p. Audience: General/trade. Zibechi goes to Bolivia to learn. Like us, he goes with questions, questions that stretch far beyond the borders of Bolivia. How do we change the world and create a different one? How do we get rid of capitalism? How do we create a society based on dignity? What is the role of the state and what are the possibilities of changing society through anti-state movements? ..the most important practical and theoretical questions that have risen from the struggles in Latin America and the world in the last fifteen years or so..book is beautiful, exciting, stimulating..Do read it and also give it your friends. John Holloway, from the Foreword "Ra?l Zibechi recounts in wonderful detail how dynamic and innovative Bolivian social movements succeeded in transforming the country. Even more inspiring than the practical exploits, though, are the theoretical innovations of the movements, which Zibechi highlights, giving us new understandings of community, political organization, institution, and a series of other concepts vital to contemporary political thought." Michael Hardt, co-author of Empire, Multitude, and Commonwealth. This, Ra?l Zibechi's first book translated into English, is an historical analysis of social struggles in Bolivia and the forms of community power instituted by that country's indigenous Aymara. Dispersing Power, like the movements it describes, explores new ways of doing politics beyond the state, gracefully mapping the "how" of revolution, offering valuable lessons to activists and new theoretical frameworks for understanding how social movements can and do operate independently of state-centered models for social change. Ra?l Zibechi is one of Latin America's leading political theorists, an international analyst for Brecha (Montevideo, Uruguay), professor at the Multiversidad Franciscana de Am?rica Latina, and author of Genealog?a de la Revuelta and Autonom?as y Emancipaciones: Am?rica Latina en Movimiento.

20 Field Notes on Democracy: Listening to GrasshoppersRoy, Arundhati Haymarket Books 160846024X / 9781608460243 Hardcover

New 

160846024X Combining fierce conviction, deft political analysis, and beautiful writing, this is the essential new book from Arundhati Roy. This series of essays examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India. It looks closely at how religious majoritarianism, cultural nationalism, and neo-fascism simmer just under the surface of a country that projects itself as the world?s largest democracy. Roy writes about how the combination of Hindu Nationalism and India?s neo-liberal economic reforms which began their journey together in the early 1990s are now turning India into a police state. She describes the systematic marginalization of religious and ethnic minorities, the rise of terrorism, and the massive scale of displacement and dispossession of the poor by predatory corporations. She also offers a brilliant account of the August 2008 uprising of the people of Kashmir against India?s military occupation and an analysis of the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai. Field Notes on Democracy tracks the fault-lines that threaten to destroy India?s precarious democracy and send shockwaves through the region and beyond.

21 Fire and Flames: A History of the German Autonomist MovementGeronimo PM Press 1604860979 / 9781604860979 PAPERBACK

New 

1604860979 Fire and Flames was the first comprehensive study of the German autonomous movement ever published. Released in 1990, it reached its fifth edition by 1997, with the legendary German Konkret journal concluding that "the movement had produced its own classic." The author, writing under the pseudonym of Geronimo, has been an autonomous activist since the movement burst onto the scene in 1980-81. In this book, he traces its origins in the Italian Autonomia project and the German social movements of the 1970s, before describing the battles for squats, "free spaces," and alternative forms of living that defined the first decade of the autonomous movement. Tactics of the "Autonome" were militant, including the construction of barricades or throwing molotov cocktails at the police. Because of their outfit (heavy black clothing, ski masks, helmets), the Autonome were dubbed the ?Black Bloc? by the German media, and their tactics have been successfully adopted and employed at anti-capitalist protests worldwide. Fire and Flames is no detached academic study, but a passionate, hands-on, and engaging account of the beginnings of one of Europe's most intriguing protest movements of the last thirty years. An introduction by George Katsiaficas, author of The Subversion of Politics and an afterword by Gabriel Kuhn, a long-time autonomous activist and author, add historical context and an update on the current state of the Autonomen.

New 

160486575X 2nd Edition, ~NEW. No DJ, as issued. Trade Paperback. Brand new; satisfaction guaranteed. In 1970, a jury convicted Robert Hillary King of a crime he did not commit and sentenced him to 35 years in prison. He became a member of the Black Panther Party while in Angola State Penitentiary, successfully organizing prisoners to improve conditions. In return, prison authorities beat him, starved him, and gave him life without parole after framing him for a second crime. He was thrown into solitary confinement, where he remained in a six by nine foot cell for 29 years as one of the Angola 3. In 2001, the state grudgingly acknowledged his innocence and set him free. This is his story. It begins at the beginning: born black, born poor, born in Louisiana in 1942, King journeyed to Chicago as a hobo at the age of 15. He married and had a child, and briefly pursued a semi-pro boxing career to help provide for his family. Just a teenager when he entered the Louisiana penal system for the first time, King tells of his attempts to break out of this system, and his persistent pursuit of justice where there is none. Yet this remains a story of inspiration and courage, and the triumph of the human spirit. The conditions in Angola almost defy description, yet King never gave up his humanity, or the work towards justice for all prisoners that he continues to do today. From the Bottom of the Heap, so simply and humbly told, strips bare the economic and social injustices inherent in our society, while continuing to be a powerful literary testimony to our own strength and capacity to overcome. The paperback edition includes additional writings from Robert King and an update on the case of the Angola 3.

29 Looking for Freedom: A Celebration of the Music of Jon Fromer (PM Audio)Fromer, Jon; Fromer, Reed PM Press 1629631248 / 9781629631240 Audiobook CD

New 

1629631248 Brand New, wrapped in plastic. Looking for Freedom: A Celebration of the Music of Jon Fromer is a tribute to the San Francisco folk/blues artist whose soulful singing style and original songs about work, love, struggle, and triumph helped fuel movements for peace, human rights, and social justice for nearly fifty years. From marching in Selma in 1965 to his final journey to the School of the Americas Watch protest in late 2012, Jon Fromer (1946?2013) lent constant musical support to people?s efforts to build more free, just, and peaceful societies. He performed to devoted fans in packed concert halls across the U.S. and in Europe?but was always most at home leading the singing contingent of a rally, a march, or a picket line. Looking for Freedom showcases thirteen of Jon Fromer?s songs?a combination of his most beloved signature pieces and some previously unrecorded material?performed and produced by his nephew and longtime accompanist Reed Fromer. Fan favorites include ?My Feet Are Tired,? a rousing tribute to Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, ?Bessie,? a recounting of the tragic fate of blues legend Bessie Smith, and ?Harvest of My Soul,? Jon?s last completed song, which invokes one?s magnified appreciation of the joys of life when time becomes a more precious commodity. Also included are four archival recordings of Jon himself, including two selections from his live concert CD, We Do the Work. The final song is Jon?s own rendition of ?Harvest of My Soul,? recorded just five days before he died.

30 Love and Struggle: My Life in SDS, the Weather Underground, and BeyondGilbert, David PM Press 1604863196 / 9781604863192 PAPERBACK

New 

1604863196 A nice Jewish boy from suburban Boston?hell, an Eagle Scout!?David Gilbert arrived at Columbia University just in time for the explosive Sixties. From the early anti-Vietnam War protests to the founding of SDS, from the Columbia Strike to the tragedy of the Townhouse, Gilbert was on the scene: as organizer, theoretician, and above all, activist. He was among the first militants who went underground to build the clandestine resistance to war and racism known as ?Weatherman.? And he was among the last to emerge, in captivity, after the disaster of the 1981 Brinks robbery, an attempted expropriation that resulted in four deaths and long prison terms. In this extraordinary memoir, written from the maximum-security prison where he has lived for almost thirty years, David Gilbert tells the intensely personal story of his own Long March from liberal to radical to revolutionary. Today a beloved and admired mentor to a new generation of activists, he assesses with rare humor, with an understanding stripped of illusions, and with uncommon candor the errors and advances, terrors and triumphs of the Sixties and beyond. It?s a battle that was far from won, but is still not lost: the struggle to build a new world, and the love that drives that effort. A cautionary tale and a how-to as well, Love and Struggle is a book as candid, as uncompromising, and as humane as its author.

0974288446 Mad Bomber Melville is the long overdue biography of Samuel Melville, a white, working class revolutionary, whose guerrilla bombings of Manhattan skyscrapers, housing government and corporate offices driving the Vietnam War, set in motion a flood of armed revolutionary actions in the United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Once imprisoned, Melville became a key organizer and a crucial element of the notorious Attica Prison rebellion, uniting prisoners across racial barriers and making the ultimate sacrifice for revolutionary change. Mad Bomber Melville traces Sam Melville s short life and rapid political development, highlighting a much-needed example of an undying and uncompromising struggle for justice and liberation.

33 Moments of Excess: Movements, Protest and Everyday LifeThe Free Association PM Press 1604861134 / 9781604861136 PAPERBACK

New 

1604861134 It?s a physical thing. The hairs on the back on your arms stand up. You get goosebumps. There?s a tingling in your spine. Your heart is racing. Your eyes shine and all your senses are heightened: sights, sounds, smells are all more intense. Somebody brushes past you, skin on skin, and you feel sparks. Even the acrid rasp of tear gas at the back of your throat becomes addictive, whilst a sip of water has come from the purest mountain spring. You have an earnest conversation with the total stranger standing next to you and it feels completely normal. (Not something that happens too often in the checkout queue at the supermarket.) Everybody is more attractive. You can?t stop grinning. Fuck knows what endorphins your brain?s producing, but it feels great. Collectivity is visceral! The first decade of the twenty-first century was marked by a series of global summits which seemed to assume ever-greater importance ? from the WTO ministerial meeting in Seattle at the end of 1999, through the G8 summits at Genoa, Evian and Gleneagles, up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15) at Copenhagen in 2009. But these global summits did not pass uncontested. Alongside and against them, there unfolded a different version of globalization. Moments of Excess is a collection of texts which offer an insider analysis of this cycle of counter-summit mobilisations. It weaves lucid descriptions of the intensity of collective action into a more sober reflection on the developing problematics of the ?movement of movements?. The collection examines essential questions concerning the character of anti-capitalist movements, and the very meaning of movement; the relationship between intensive collective experiences ? ?moments of excess? ? and ?everyday life?; and the tensions between open, all-inclusive, ?constitutive? practices, on the one hand, and the necessity of closure, limits and antagonism, on the other. Moments of Excess includes a new introduction explaining the origin of the texts and their relation to event-based politics, and a postscript which explores new possibilities for anti-capitalist movements in the midst of crisis.

35 Mountain Justice: Homegrown Resistance to Mountaintop Removal, for the Future of Us AllShapiro, Tricia AK Press 184935023X / 9781849350235 PAPERBACK

New 

184935023X Mountaintop removal (MTR) does exactly what it says: A mountaintop is stripped of trees, blown to bits with explosives, then pushed aside by giant equipment?all to expose a layer of coal to be mined. In recent years, local people fighting against MTR's destruction of their homes in West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia have invited volunteers from outside Appalachia's coalfields to help them bring national attention to this shameful practice, and abolish it. Since the Mountain Justice campaign began in 2005, dozens of local coalfield residents, students, Earth Firsters, and others have been arrested in nonviolent protest actions against MTR. "This on-the-ground, insider report of a grassroots effort to end mountaintop removal in Appalachia is a fascinating account of why building solidarity across geographic, age, class, and philosophical lines in such struggles is so important but so hard. Shapiro allows the participants in this battle to speak for themselves about their motivations, hopes, and fears. And it is from these voices that we come to understand that their fight is our fight too."?Steve Fisher, editor, Fighting Back in Appalachia: Traditions of Resistance and Change. "In Mountain Justice Tricia Shapiro has told with great clarity and understanding the story of the heroic efforts of the people of Appalachia to save their mountains, streams, and communities from the destruction and savageness of mountaintop removal mining. Her account of the years of resistance to mountaintop removal by the courageous women, men, and children who have risked their lives on a daily basis is a story that must be heard all across America. Tricia Shapiro has told us the heart of the matter?the dignity, the strength, the loving kindness of the folk who have given all that they have to save a precious and enduring place on the Earth."?Jack Spadaro, whistleblower and former director of the National Mine Safety and Health Academy. Tricia Shapiro has been closely following and writing about efforts to end large-scale strip mining for coal in Appalachia since 2004. She lives on a remote mountain homestead in western North Carolina, near the Tennessee border.

0977795365 The highs and lows of the Bush administration from the vantage point of a political dissenter are revealed in this undaunted analysis of American government. Formerly an executive at a Fortune 500 company, Wayne Madsen quit his job and moved to Washington, DC, in 2000 to launch a journalistic, grassroots campaign that sought to cut through media hype and unveil the truth behind the politics. Selections of his writings are included, covering issues ranging from 9/11 and the Iraq war to the ousting of Bill Frist and Rick Santorum. As Madsen?s whistle-blowing became more pronounced, his financial support from sources within the capital dwindled. But as this riveting account shows, some battles can be fought even on a shoestring budget.

190485978X Remainder mark on bottom edge of pages. What if we had direct control over our daily lives? What if society's defining institutions?those encompassing economics, politics, kinship, culture, community, and ecology?were based not on competition, individual ownership, and coercion, but on self-management, equity, solidarity, and diversity? Real Utopia identifies and obliterates the barriers to an egalitarian, bottom-up society, while convincingly outlining how to build it.Instead of simply declaring "another world is possible," the writers in this collection engage with what that world would look like, how it would function, and how our commitments to just outcomes is related to the sort of institutions we maintain. Topics include: participatory economics, political vision, education, architecture, artists in a free society, environmentalism, work after capitalism, and poly-culturalism. catchall phrase here is "participatory society"?one that is directly democratic and seeks institutional solutions to complex sociological and economic questions.Contributors include: Michael Albert, Barbara Ehrenreich, Steve Shalom, Robin Hahnel, Marie Trigona, Noam Chomsky, Paul Burrows, Justin Podur, Tom Wetzel, Cynthia Peters, Andrej Grubacic, and Mandisi Majavu, among others.Chris Spannos is an activist, organizer, and anti-capitalist. He is a full-time staff member with the internationally acclaimed ZNet, a web site dedicated to social change, hosting works by many of today's leading social commentators, organizers, activists, and analysts, with 300,000 users weekly. He resides in Woods Hole, MA."This is a spectacular book of ideas?brave, adventurous, intriguing ideas that reclaim perhaps the greatest human asset of all, political imagination, and help us realise once again that another world is indeed possible."?John Pilger, author of New Rulers of the World and Freedom Next Time"Chris Spannos has assembled a volume of hard-hitting, thought-provoking essays which address a critical need on the Left: the creation and elaboration of new theory. Whether in agreement or disagreement, readers will be both excited and challenged by the contents of this book. So pick it up right now!"?Bill Fletcher, Jr., Co-founder of the Black Radical Congress and the Center for Labor Renewal, and former President of TransAfrica Forum"This book captures what's best in past and most promising in future social practice; no one-size-fits-all miracles but practical suggestions and a huge and warranted display of confidence in peoples' skills and imagination. It's a compendium of healthily head-in-clouds [where the air is purer] but feet-on-ground utopias, and it reinforces our belief that the story of human emancipation is far from over."?Susan George, Board Chair of the Transnational Institute. "This excellent book fills a huge gap in the thinking and writing about the creation of a better society. It not only outlines how such a society might be organized in theory, but also looks at concrete applications of these ideas around the world, in recent history, and in the U.S., and how we might organize to get there. This book is essential reading for all those who firmly believe that a better world is possible and who want to engage with some of the best ideas and practices for bringing about such a world."?Gregory Wilpert, author of Changing Venezuela by Taking Power: Policies of the Chavez Presidency and editor of Venezuelanalysis.com"Now that the idea that 'there is no alternative' has been challenged by the idea that 'another world is possible,' it behooves us to debate what that 'other world' could and should be. This book presents a coherent school of thought with provocative answers to that question?answers that go beyond the traditional shibboleths of the left."?Jeremy Brecher, historian and author of Strike!"There comes a time in every anarchist's life when she must decide whether her value system has application in the real world or is simply an ideology of lament. For those not content with the low-mileage of the latter, Real Utopia is an inspiring interim report?collated from the four corners of the Earth?on the evolution of the complex adaptive system we commonly refer to as 'anarchism'."?Chris Hannah, Propagandhi.

New 

1604864540 In 1972 Selma James set out a new political perspective. Her starting point was the millions of unwaged women who, working in the home and on the land, were not seen as ?workers? and their struggles viewed as outside of the class struggle. Based on her political training in the Johnson-Forest Tendency, founded by her late husband C.L.R. James, on movement experience South and North, and on a respectful study of Marx, she redefined the working class to include sectors previously dismissed as ?marginal.? For James, the class struggle presents itself as the conflict between the reproduction and survival of the human race, and the domination of the market with its exploitation, wars, and ecological devastation. She sums up her strategy for change as ?Invest in Caring not Killing.? This selection, spanning six decades, traces the development of this perspective in the course of building an international campaigning network. It includes the classic The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community which launched the ?domestic labor debate,? the exciting Hookers in the House of the Lord which describes a church occupation by sex workers, an incisive review of the C.L.R. James masterpiece The Black Jacobins, a reappraisal of the novels of Jean Rhys and of the leadership of Julius Nyerere, the groundbreakingMarx and Feminism, and ?What the Marxists Never Told Us About Marx,? published here for the first time. The writing is lucid and without jargon. The ideas, never abstract, spring from the experience of organising, from trying to make sense of the successes and the setbacks, and from the need to find a way forward.

Audience: General/trade. In Silencing Political Dissent, one of the best additions to the Open Media Series in recent memory, Chang argues convincingly that a rapid disintegration of American civil liberties is already underway. Emboldened by the nearly uncontested passage of the USA PATRIOT Act in October 2001, the Bush administration quickly set about issuing law-and-order edicts, overseeing law enforcement operations with ominous names, legitimizing invasive immigrant interrogations, detaining and deporting without due process or access to counsel, and closing ranks to prevent inquiry or investigation into the machinations of the 'War On Terror. ' Chang, a senior litigation attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, pulls apart the provisions of the PATRIOT Act, reminding readers at every step just how much of this sweeping (and often ambiguous) act has yet to be interpreted. Courts may be busy for years-nay, decades-trying to sort out the places where our treasured constitutional rights and the PATRIOT Act run headlong into one another, but the INS and FBI (and other agencies of the U.S. government) have pushed forward with Ashcroft's far-right blessing. result?

You can't reform profit capitalism and inhumanity. Just kick it till it breaks. Angry Brigade, communiqu?. Between 1970 and 1972, the Angry Brigade used guns and bombs in a series of symbolic attacks against property. A series of communiqu?s accompanied the actions, explaining the choice of targets and the Angry Brigade philosophy: autonomous organization and attacks on property alongside other forms of militant working class action. Targets included the embassies of repressive regimes, police stations and army barracks, boutiques and factories, government departments and the homes of Cabinet ministers, the Attorney General and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. These attacks on the homes of senior political figures increased the pressure for results and brought an avalanche of police raids. From the start the police were faced with the difficulty of getting to grips with a section of society they found totally alien. And were they facing an organization or an idea? This book covers the roots of the Angry Brigade in the revolutionary ferment of the 1960s, and follows their campaign and the police investigation to its culmination in the Stoke Newington 8 conspiracy trial at the Old Bailey the longest criminal trial in British legal history. Written after extensive research among both the libertarian opposition and the police it remains the essential study of Britain's first urban guerilla group. This expanded edition contains a comprehensive chronology of the "Angry Decade, " extra illustrations and a police view of the Angry Brigade. Introductions by Stuart Christie and John Barker (two of the "Stoke Newington 8" defendants) discuss the Angry Brigade in the political and social context of its times and its longer-term significance.

1904859631 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 121 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. With the World Trade Organization in retreat globally, do we remember the seeds of the anti-capitalist movements that blossomed and, on November 30, 1999, brought Seattle to a standstill? Released just in time for the 10th anniversary of the Seattle WTO protests, this collection confronts the challenges of historical memory, and suggests just how much we have to learn from (and about) the past decade of activism against globalization. David Solnit recounts the story of his consultation with Battle In Seattle: Movie and tells how a group of Seattle activists intervened in the Hollywood star-studded docudrama to challenge and change the story. He dispels damaging movement myths by highlighting the organizing, strategy, and dynamics that sparked the retreat of corporate globalization. Rebecca Solnit tells of her battle with the New York Times, challenging their repeated misinformation about the Seattle protests including her written exchanges with the editors and reflects on how corporate media's twisting of history impacts our future. Chris Dixon gives a view of Seattle "from the ground, " offering an intimate look at N30 and the days surrounding it through the eyes of one of the event's core organizers. Includes an introduction by veteran activist Anuradha Mittal, as well as the "Come to Seattle: Call to Action, " and key articles by Stephanie Guilloud and Chris Borte, from the original Direct Action Network broadsheet that encouraged activists worldwide to join the fray. Profusely illustrated with photos and artwork from Seattle '99.

Glued binding. 282 p. Audience: General/trade. Within Westernized societies, particularly the United States, there has been a near universal acceptance that nonviolent action has been the foundation on which the progress and/or success of political and social justice movements has been built. Contrary to popular beliefs held by many in the United States, political violence has played a crucial role in advancing historical justice struggles. In this breakthrough study, Rosebraugh examines the historical roles that both nonviolence and political violence have played in social and political movements both in the United States and internationally. His profound and well-researched conclusions advocate the necessity of a political and social revolution in the United States, using any means necessary. Craig Rosebraugh is a co-founder of Arissa, an effort to build a revolutionary movement in the United States of America. A political activist since 1990, he is best known for his former role as a spokesperson for the Earth Liberation Front.

New 

1604861029 Angela Davis is a legendary speaker, known for the clarity and subtlety of her thought and the compelling passion of her delivery. This speech was delivered at a conference organized for the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in 1808, to talk about the meaning of freedom. What has that freedom meant for people of African descent? What has that freedom meant for the black world? And what has been the relationship to communities that are differently racialized but nonetheless suffer under these cycles of oppression? Speaking in depth on the history of slavery in the US, the destructive nature of the prison-industrial complex, and the growing threat to democracy poised by ever-powerful global corporations, Davis ask listeners to recall inspiring moments of African American resistance and to work across lines of race and gender to foster grassroots democracy.

Since 1776, the U.S. Government has been run by and for only the wealthy white man and-especially as of late-his corporate interests. Over this time, this regime has waged a continuous genocidal campaign against Native American nations, an oppressive and murderous campaign against African Americans, against Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Puerto Ricans, women and the poor. natural environment has been decimated by industries and governmental agencies that prioritize monetary gain over the protection of the Earth. Our air is becoming too polluted to breathe, water too contaminated to drink, and our food supply compromised by chemical herbicides, pesticides and genetic engineering. Millions of animals are used, abused, and slaughtered in the United States annually not out of any necessity, but for purposes of human vanity, fraudulent medical experimentation and product testing, unhealthy dietary consumption, and sadistic entertainment. This is in addition to the millions of people the U.S. government and corporations have killed and displaced internationally as a direct result of U.S. foreign policy interests and imperialism. This Country Must Change is an effort to further the discussion of the necessity of a fundamental political and social revolution in the United States. This book contains essays by twelve activists and authors, all who have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to revolutionary change. It is as inspiring as it is educational and a must read for anyone involved with or considering advocating for political or social change within the U.S. Arguing that reformist measures cannot be relied upon to correct the fundamental problems caused by the corporate elite and political structure in the United States, the contributing authors in this book are unified in their call for a significant revolutionary change in the United States of America.

61 Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States; AK Press 2010 1849350167 / 9781849350167 PAPERBACK

New

In the midst of a moment defined by international crises, community devastation, increasing injustice, and ruptures in the fabric of everyday life, winds of resistance continue to emerge and to circulate. Uses of a Whirlwind is more than just a snapshot of current activity, organizing, ideas, and questions circulating among today's radicals. It's an opportunity for organizers, theorists, strategists, and movement elders to share and connect, to speak honestly of the challenges before us, to articulate new demands and possibilities in the ongoing war against state and capital. Team Colors Collective invites voices from today's myriad currents, and in so doing generates common understandings of radical community organizing, movement building, and the impetus and inspiration toward making a revolution possible. essays collected here come from very different places: farms, forests, bookstores, streets and street corners, homes, corporate chains. Their authors organize in very different ways: art and media, mapping and research, theory and discussion, popular education, and road blockades. Yet they are all moved by the same desire: to create new worlds and new ways of being, and demanding nothing less. We are in the middle of a whirlwind of struggle and opportunities for fundamental change abound; it's just a question of how we use them.

New 

1629630349 Brand New, trade paperback binding. David Hartsough knows how to get in the way. He has used his body to block Navy ships headed for Vietnam and trains loaded with munitions on their way to El Salvador and Nicaragua. He has crossed borders to meet ?the enemy? in East Berlin, Castro?s Cuba, and present-day Iran. He has marched with mothers confronting a violent regime in Guatemala and stood with refugees threatened by death squads in the Philippines. Waging Peace is a testament to the difference one person can make. Hartsough?s stories inspire, educate, and encourage readers to find ways to work for a more just and peaceful world. Inspired by the examples of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., Hartsough has spent his life experimenting with the power of active nonviolence. It is the story of one man?s effort to live as though we were all brothers and sisters. Engaging stories on every page provide a peace activist?s eyewitness account of many of the major historical events of the past sixty years, including the Civil Rights and anti?Vietnam War movements in the United States and the little-known but equally significant nonviolent efforts in the Soviet Union, Kosovo, Palestine, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. Hartsough?s story demonstrates the power and effectiveness of organized nonviolent action. But Waging Peace is more than one man?s memoir. Hartsough shows how this struggle is waged all over the world by ordinary people committed to ending the spiral of violence and war.

With dust jacket. 226 p. Audience: General/trade. From Publishers Weekly Writing teacher Jensen doesn't believe in the traditional grading system, which he calls "a cudgel to bludgeon the unwilling into doing what they don't want to do, " so he opts instead to give his students at Eastern Washington University check marks: one check mark for turning in a piece of writing, four for editing that writing into perfection. For this opinionated offering on writing, teaching and the state of the world, Jensen deserves four checkmarks for courage. His ideas are always radical and often inspiring. He rails against the public education system frequently and with refreshing humor, telling students their papers "have to be good enough interesting enough that I would rather read them than make love. " Drawing on his personal experience, he castigates what he sees as formal education's lack of creativity and flexibility for personal style. Jensen's strength lies in his honest, provocative, passionate approach. rawness of his ideas is this book's virtue, but it's also its vice. When Jensen makes seemingly random forays into commentary on the demise of the environment or political consciousness (subjects he explored in earlier books like Culture of Make Believe), his writing becomes long-winded and unfocused. He loses sight of his own seventh rule of writing, which he so dramatically relays to his students: clarity. But more importantly, Jensen's first, second, third and fourth rules of writing are "Don't bore the reader. " In that effort, he succeeds masterfully.

67 West of Eden: Communes and Utopia in Northern California; PM Press 1604864273 / 9781604864274 PAPERBACK

New 

1604864273 In the shadow of the Vietnam War, a significant part of an entire generation refused their assigned roles in the American century. Some took their revolutionary politics to the streets, others decided simply to turn away, seeking to build another world together, outside the state and the market. West of Eden charts the remarkable flowering of communalism in the 60s and 70s, fueled by a radical rejection of the Cold War corporate deal, utopian visions of a peaceful green planet, the new technologies of sound and light, and the ancient arts of ecstatic release. The book focuses on the San Francisco Bay Area and its hinterlands, which have long been creative spaces for social experiment. Haight-Ashbury's gift economy?its free clinic, concerts, and street theatre?and Berkeley's liberated zones?Sproul Plaza, Telegraph Avenue, and People's Park?were embedded in a wider network of producer and consumer co-ops, food conspiracies, and collective schemes. Using memoir and flashbacks, oral history and archival sources, West of Eden explores the deep historical roots and the enduring, though often disavowed, legacies of the extraordinary pulse of radical energies that generated forms of collective life beyond the nuclear family and the world of private consumption, including the contradictions evident in such figures as the guru/predator or the hippie/entrepreneur. There are vivid portraits of life on the rural communes of Mendocino and Sonoma, and essays on the Black Panther communal households in Oakland, the latter-day Diggers of San Francisco, the Native American occupation of Alcatraz, the pioneers of live/work space for artists, and the Bucky dome as the iconic architectural form of the sixties. Due to the prevailing amnesia?partly imposed by official narratives, partly self-imposed in the aftermath of defeat?West of Eden is not only a necessary act of reclamation, helping to record the unwritten stories of the motley generation of communards and antinomians now passing, but is also intended as an offering to the coming generation who will find here, in the rubble of the twentieth century, a past they can use?indeed one they will need?in the passage from the privations of commodity capitalism to an ample life in common.

In the first half of the 20th century, strikes and Union battles, murders and frame-ups, were common in every industrial center in the U.S. But none of these episodes compared in scope to the West Virginia Mine Wars. uprisings of coal miners that defined the Mine Wars of the 1920 s were a direct result of the Draconian rule of the coal companies. climax was the Battle of Blair Mountain, the largest open and armed rebellion in U.S. history. Battle, and Union leader Bill Blizzard s quest for justice, was only quelled when the U.S. Army brought guns, poison gas and aerial bombers to stop the 10, 000 bandanna-clad miners who formed the spontaneous Red Neck Army. Over half a century ago, William C. Blizzard wrote the definitive insider s history of the Mine Wars and the resulting trial for treason of his father, the fearless leader of the Red Neck Army. Events dramatized in John Sayles film Matewan, and fictionalized in Denise Giardina s stirring novel Storming Heaven, are here recounted as they occurred. This is a people's history, complete with previously unpublished family photos and documents. If it brawls a little, and brags a little, and is angry more than a little, well, the people in this book were that way.
