DIXIE BE DAMNED! Read an excerpt!

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South is here!. One of the most exciting things about this book is how well it combines solid (and largely unknown) history with both damn good storytelling and a radical analysis that keeps the contemporary relevance of those stories in continual focus. Here’s a little taste: [...]

Get ready for THE NEW BRAZIL

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Remember when Lula’s election in Brazil offered some pretense of hope to certain folks on the international left?

Brazil has since emerged as a powerful new player on the geopolitical stage, with Lula embracing [...]
