Ashley’s Adieu…

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Today is my last day working at AK Press. After spending the last several years answering the phone (“hello, AK Press”), learning all the best book-packing strategies so customers are impressed at how not-damaged everything is when it arrives (please tell me you are impressed!), tabling all kinds of events around North America, and, yes, [...]

Chomsky’s Advice for Anarchists

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

This video has been around since March, so I suspect I might be one of the few people who hadn’t seen it until now. In case there are any more of you out there, take a look. It’s Noam Chomsky answering questions from readers (and asking them one of his own at the end). [...]

AK Press in Your Ear!

Monday, July 26th, 2010

A couple of AK-related audio recordings have appeared on the almighty Interweb over the last week or so. I can’t embed either in this post, so you’ll just have to follow the links, comrade. 1) New World from Below Collaborative Book Party As we’ve mentioned on this blog before, AK Press was one of ten [...]

Tom Wetzel and the Trotskyists

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

The International Socialist Organization recently produced yet another off-the-mark critique of “contemporary anarchism” in their journal International Socialist Review. Actually, that’s not entirely fair: Eric Kerl’s article does demonstrate more familiarity with anarchist theory and practice than many I’ve read, and he does occasionally raise some valid points about certain contemporary and historical strands of [...]

Water Wars, Climate Wars, and Change from Below: David Solnit reports back on Bolivia

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Just a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to run into AK author and longtime Bay Area organizer David Solnit at the US Social Forum, and hear a bit about his recent trip to Bolivia. I asked David to send us a reportback on his experiences for the AK blog, and he was kind [...]

Challenging Power and Creating New Spaces for Possibility: A Discussion with Robin DG Kelley

Monday, July 19th, 2010

We’ve done a lot of posts lately about our new book with Team Colors, Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States, but we realized we hadn’t posted an excerpt from the book yet! Since the book is an edited collection, trying to find a representative sample to post [...]

Distro Top Ten Six — July 2010

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Just what is the distro top 10? That’s a question that has been asked through the ages. Is it new books? The best books? What the kids are buying these days? Because I am old and cannot learn, I’ve decided to just do what I like (I’m going to make a great senior, eh?!). So [...]

Grace Lee Boggs and Immanuel Wallerstein at the USSF

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Y’all were (unfortunately) treated to some of my reportsback from the USSF a couple of weeks ago, as Suzanne and Jessica and I beat our way through the wilds of Detroit. But I think I failed to mention that, for me, one of the things I was most looking forward to at the Social Forum [...]

Radical America and Cultural Correspondence

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Like many of you, I’m sure, I spend a lot of time trolling the internet for interesting bits of anarchist and radical history. I’m probably happiest in this obsessive endeavor when I come across archives that house entire (or nearly entire) runs of a single periodical. There are a bunch of them out there…probably a [...]
