Power Beyond Scrutiny

Media, Justice and Accountability

Justin Schlosberg

Revealing critique of the mainstream media – why it fails to challenge those in power and keeps silent on certain issues.

“A book by one of the new generation’s rising stars that examines the forces that limit investigative journalism. It will be as absorbing and revelatory for general readers interested in politics as it will be for journalism students and academics.” – Professor James Curran, Goldsmiths, University of London

“An illuminating and deeply disturbing book. Schlosberg reveals that much of what we believe and admire about the media’s role in exposing corruption and confronting authority is a dangerous illusion. “ – Phillip Knightley, Author and journalist

£16.99 only £15.00 on the Pluto site

The Anarchist Turn

Edited by Jacob Blumenfeld, Chiara Bottici and Simon Critchley

Brings together innovative and fresh perspectives on contemporary anarchism.

“The Anarchist Turn is an important signpost on our new political and ethical terrain. It affirms anarchism as the unmistakable horizon of our present condition.” – Saul Newman, Reader in Political Theory, Goldsmiths University of London.

£17.99 only £16.00 on the Pluto site

The Dying Sahara

US Imperialism and Terror in Africa

Jeremy Keenan

An illuminating account of how the US and its new African command have created a self-fulfilling prophecy of terror and instability in the Sahara.

Generation Palestine

Voices from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement

Edited by Rich Wiles. Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Brings together Palestinian and international activists in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

“The BDS movement is the most enlightened, imaginative, moral, fearless and dynamic blow for freedom I have known for many years. I believe it will be a vital factor in the liberation of Palestine. The inspiring voices in this book will help achieve that goal.” – John Pilger

“Reading this book, talking about it and acting upon its ideas is a further political act against an injustice that has lasted a lifetime. “ – John Berger

The Global Hunger Crisis

Tackling Food Insecurity in Developing Countries

Majda Bne Saad

Deeply informative study which identifies the causes for global hunger embedded in the current global political and economic system.

“This book should be mandatory reading for anyone who mistakenly believes that the global hunger crisis is over.” – Stephen Devereux, Fellow of the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex.

Demolishes the myths of corporate globalisation and shows its devastating environmental impact.
