Jamie Heckert’s contribution, “Anarchy Without Opposition,” has just been excerpted [...]

Review of Sewing Freedom by Chris Brickell

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Jared Davidson’s new book is a history of both an influential figure – Philip Josephs – and a movement: anarchism in New Zealand. It is a beautifully-written and impeccably-researched volume that brings to our attention an often overlooked aspect of our political history. Sewing Freedom traces the journey of Josephs and his family from Latvia [...]

“Yellow Kid” Weil Reviewed on BoingBoing!

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Much to our delight, we woke up this morning to an excellent BoingBoing review of the latest book in our popular Nabat series, “Yellow Kid” Weil: The Autobiography of America’s Master Swindler! Cory Doctorow describes the book: “Weil’s autobiography is really more of a memoir—it doesn’t provide much of a coherent narrative of the man [...]
