A Radical Collective Manifesto
Edited by Federico Campagna and Emanuele Campiglio
Visions of a different society run in the interests of the 99%. Leading activist voices answer the question the media loves to ask the protesters.
“Here are the first flowers of spring: the beginning of an epochal dialogue about the human future. Inspired by the Occupy movements across the world, What We Are Fighting For should inspire all of us to join the conversation.” – Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums and City of Quartz
“This collection provides a rallying point for all those who resist the dogmas of contemporary politics and seek a fresh set of alternatives. What We Are Fighting For is a manifesto full of urgent, articulate responses to the current situation.” – Simon Critchley, Hans Jonas Professor of Philosophy at the New School, New York, and author of The Faith of the Faithless (2012).
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
How One Man’s Thirst For Wealth and Power Shapes our World
David McKnight. Foreword by Robert W. McChesney
Searching analysis of Rupert Murdoch’s impact on politics, media and culture. Includes the fallout from the Leveson inquiry.
“An anatomy and record of the reign of Murdoch which is brave and valuable. One day, when Murdoch is gone, it will help explain why so many obeyed him.” – The Guardian
“A timely and hard-hitting account of the career of the world’s first and greatest global media baron, from one of Australia’s leading academics in the field of journalism studies. A former journalist himself, McKnight’s account of the Murdoch empire should be read by all who are interested in the relationship between media and political power in our time.” – Brian McNair, Professor of Journalism, Media & Communication at Queensland University of Technology, author of News and Journalism in the UK (2009)
The Forgotten Women of the War on Terror
Victoria Brittain. Foreword by John Berger. Afterword by Marina Warner
Reveals the impact on the wives and families of men incarcerated in Guantanamo, or in prison in Britain and the US, during the ‘war on terror’.
“A searching, sensitive, and wrenching account of the ordeal of the women left behind, their torment, their endurance and courage, their triumphs over the cruel “extension of prison to home.” And not least, a revealing picture of what we have allowed ourselves to become.
“This is a window into an invisible world…a reminder that abandoning normal legal standards has serious consequences for the Rule of Law.” – Helena Kennedy, QC
From Neanderthals to Neoliberals
Magisterial analysis of human history, from the first hominid to the Great Recession of 2008. Written from the perspective of ordinary men and women.
“‘Enlightening and apocalyptic in equal measure'” – Guardian
“Who needs ‘objective’ history? Not Neil Faulkner, for whom the history of the world is a relentless and disgraceful parade of shame from the brazenly wasteful tribes of the Bronze Age to Maoist China’s sell-out state capitalism. If nothing else this book will make you stop and think and give you a taste of what it must have felt like to be a firebrand buoyed up by righteous revolutionary zeal in October 1917. If you like your blood boiled, this is the history for you. I can guarantee you’ll be outraged – either because you agree with him or because you don’t!” – Guy de la Bédoyère, historian and author of Roman Britain: A New History (2006).
