La Jornada reviews Weaponizing Anthropology.

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

La Jornada is one of the most widely circulated daily newspapers in Mexico City, so imagine my delight when I came across this fantastic (or so I imagined.

Why Peace, Love, and Petrol Bombs is a good date …

Friday, July 15th, 2011

From the author of our latest fiction offering, a humble analysis of why you should — and shouldn’t — read the book. I wish I could get every author we work with to write a piece like this. DD Johnston is just amazing, and I’m super-psyched about how well Peace, Love, and Petrol Bombs is [...]

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

In the June 2011 issue of Reason Magazine (Free Minds and Free Markets!) Thaddeus Russell had a lot to say about Jason Hribal’s Fear of the Animal Planet.
