We are excited to announce two new titles coming in the fall of 2019!
In October, we will be publishing Pan-African Social Ecology: Speeches, Conversations and Essays by Modibo Kadalie. This is Kadalie's first new book in almost twenty years. In this collection of interviews and public talks, he reflects on his participation in the sit-ins, boycotts, strikes, urban rebellions, and anticolonialist movements that have animated the late-twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. Kadalie demonstrates how forms of directly democratic organizing that have evolved through these freedom struggles also present the promise of a ecological future. In so doing, he explains that direct democracy is the key to both Black liberation and ecological security.
This concise, radical, and iconoclastic book calls on present and future generations of activists to reconnect with the spirit of these movements without lionizing individual leaders or lending legitimacy to any government or politician.
In November we are publishing Lay Down Your Arms: Anti-Militarism, Anti-Imperialism, and the Global Radical Left in the 1930s. Edited by Ole Birk Laursen, Lay Down Your Arms is a collection of essays from a diverse group of writers originally published in the Dutch anti-militarist journal, De Wapens Neder (1935). Through their writing, these anarchist and socialist writers from Europe, Algeria, India, Japan, and the United States connected the struggles against fascism and imperialism in East Asia and Europe with anti-colonial struggles in India and Africa and the African American civil rights movement in the United States. This collection demonstrates the international scope and reach of anarchist and socialist anti-militarism in the 1930s.
Both of these books are available for pre-order from our Online Store.
