Introduction to “Bloodstained: One Hundred Years of Leninist Counterrevolution”

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

HISTORY may not have ended, but it certainly has gotten strange. The social contract neoliberalism once imposed—a patchwork of economic shell games and the political rituals needed to foist them on people—has shredded with surprising speed in recent years. The result has been a rapid universalization of precarity. Unpredictability and groundlessness are ubiquitous parts of [...]

An Interview with Grace Lee Boggs

Monday, October 5th, 2015

“We need to recognize that we are at a very special time on the clock of the world when we need to make a huge leap forward in what it means to be a human being.” As you have probably heard, Grace Lee Boggs died today. She was 100 years old. We were lucky enough [...]

In Defense of Emma Goldmann and the Right of Expropriation, by Voltairine De Cleyre

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

A hundred and twenty years ago this week, Voltarine de Cleyre gave the following impassioned speech at a benefit concert for Emma Goldman and others who had been arrested the previous August at a demonstration. In the process, she makes an equally sharp argument in favor of expropriating the wealth of the ruling class. In [...]

Imagine a World Without Prisons: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Superheroes, and Prison Abolition

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Walidah Imarisha is the co-editor (along with adrienne maree brown) of Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements, a book we’re publishing in April in collaboration with the Institute for Anarchist Studies. The project is a fascinating and exciting one, and we’re looking forward to holding the final product in our hands (as are [...]

Books of the Future: Forthcoming Titles from AK Press

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

  We have a different, somewhat split sense of time here in the AK Press warehouse. While we’re packing and shipping and promoting brand new books (Drug War Capitalism will be arriving any day now), we’re also copyediting and proofing books for further down the road, and helping even more distant projects take initial shape. [...]

Some reading to understand what’s happening in Kobanê and Rojava

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

The Kurdish people are the largest nation in the world without a state. And many Kurds, especially in the autonomous region of Rojava (in Syria), aren’t interested in forming one. This fact often gets lost in the mainstream news accounts of the attacks by ISIS fundamentalists on the Kobanê (a canton in Rojava). No surprise there. [...]

A Spanish Revolution Reading List

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

  On this day in 1936, fascists in Spain launched a coup to topple the country’s Republican government. They got more than they bargained for: within days workers and peasants across the country fought back for a world without government. This, of course, seems like a good time to share a sampling of the many, [...]

Editor Q&A with Lisa Factora-Borchers of Dear Sister: Letters From Survivors of Sexual Violence

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Available through AK Press in January 2014 Why did you decide to edit this book, and how do you feel it is contributing to the conversation and work around sexual violence? Lisa Factora-Borchers: When I first worked as a legal and medical advocate for survivors of sexual violence, I often wished I had something to [...]

Editor Kate Khatib Reflects on We Are Many, our new Occupy book (#WeAreMany #Occupy)

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

I remember sitting in Minneapolis last November chatting with a dear friend, talking about upcoming book projects, and him asking: So who do you have doing an AK Press book on Occupy? It was a good question. I thought about it, weighed the options, talked to authors, activists, and organizers, and came to the conclusion [...]
