Literature

There are alot of good things worth reading out there. Unfortunately there are many more crappy things. Worst of all, most people find it difficult to agree on which is which. At the very least, none of the following titles fall into my crappy category. In fact, some of them I really like. For literature that i am less picky about, but which you may nevertheless appreciate, you should also check out my new Remainder Book List (or download the PDF version ).

Anti-Mass - methods of organization for collectives , $2.50  

The Arcane of Reproduction - Housework, Prostitution, Labor and Capital, by Leopoldina Fortunati. While I cannot honestly recommend this book, i am sure it will be of interest to some. I suspect part of the problem is in the translation, and an original text that was probably laden with jargon - or pehaps it is simply like a friend said: "Steeped in the canon." The thing is that even after scratching through the verbiage, i'm left with the feeling that maybe just maybe even if it were written in plain language, i would still not agree with Fortunati's argument.
That said, given how we often continue to not pay enough attention to questions of unwaged labour, including housework, and the continuing dearth of analysis of the role of prostitution in making capitalism tick, it is always nice to see someone trying to grapple with these questions. I'm halfway through the book now, so i may rewrite this when i get to the end... 176 pages   $12.00

As Nature Made Him
As Nature Made Him, by John Colapinto, read by Howard McGillin. The story of David Reimer who's botched circumcision as a baby resulted in him living the first 14 years of his life as a girl. Yet at age 14, he makes the decision to live life as a male. David's early life was used as the example that gender identity was based on physical biology/nurture, whereas Reimer's decision to reject Dr John Money's insistence that he "conveniently" become female has been embraced by the trans-community as an example of individual gender freedom being more important than theories from the "experts".

Color of Violence
Color of Violence: the INCITE! anthology. The weakness of a lot of anti-violence politics is its reliance on the State and its police, courts and prisons. The weakness of a lot of revolutionary movements is their failure to engage with problems of interpersonal violence and anti-social behaviour amongst and between the oppressed.
Color of Violence doesn't just untangle this knot, it takes a chainsaw to it, elaborating strategies of radical community intervention and grassroots movement building that avoid the trite while zero-ing in on the experiences of the oppressed. Glimpses of what anti-violence strategies that are anti-cop might look like, of what feminism imbued with anti-racism and anti-imperialism can give us. Anti-violence strategies which acknowledge the fact that the State is itself a major source of abuse and oppression for women in the united states and around the world. Interventions, arguments and strategies dealing with how women can protect themselves and their communities both from interpersonal and systemic violence.

Daring to Struggle, Failing to Win: the Red Army Faction’s 1977 Campaign of Desperation, by André Moncourt and J. Smith. In 1970 a small group of West German revolutionaries decided to go underground, to set up safehouses, and learn the skills of the urban guerilla. They were the Red Army Faction. Seven years later, almost all of the original combatants were in prison or dead, yet, through their example, they had inspired a militant and illegal support movement, comrades willing to take up arms in defense of the prisoners. 1977 was to be a year of reckoning. Through daring attacks and devastating errors, the West German guerilla brought their society to the brink, mounting one of the most desperate and incredible campaigns of asymmetrical warfare ever waged in postwar Europe. That they failed is no excuse to not learn their story, to see who they were and what they fought for – and, most tragically, to bear witness to the lengths the state would go to silence them, to make sure no one would ever again make such an attempt to free the prisoners. Later this year Kersplebedeb and PM Press will be publishing the first volume in a documentary history of the RAF by Moncourt and Smith, but in the meantime this pamphlet is a modest introduction to this story. 43 pages $5.95

Facing the Enemy
Facing the Enemy: A History Of Anarchist Organisation From Proudhon To May 1968, by Alexander Skirda. Critical and engaged, Skirda offers biting and incisive portraits of the major anarchist thinkers, and more crucially, the organizations they inspired, influenced, came out of and were spurned by. Opinionated and witty, he is equally at home skewering the actions of the early anarchist Victor Serge as he is the Paris chief of police who organized undercover "anarchist bombers" in an attempt to infiltrate and discredit the movement. Bakuninist secret societies; the Internationals and the clash with Marx; the Illegalists, bombers and assassins; the mass trade unions and insurrections; and, of course, the Russian and Spanish Revolutions are all discussed through the prism of working people battling fiercely for a new world free of the shackles of Capital and the State.

Fired by the Ideal
Fired by the Ideal: Italian-American Responses to Czolgosz's killing of McKinley, by Giuseppe Ciancabilla. William McKinley was the 25th president of the United States, until an anarchist from a Polish-Russian immigrant family - Leon Czolgosz - assassinated him on September 6th 1901. Fierce repression struck the anarchist movement, and as a result many offered only lukewarm support for Czolgosz. An exception was the anarchist newspaper L'Aurora, based among Italian miners in Spring Valley, Illinois, and edited by the author of this pamphlet. This newspaper spoke up stongly in defense of the assassination, and found itself in the crosshairs of the State. This pamphlet consists of writings and statements from the time of the assassination, centering on the repression faced by Ciancabilla. 28 page $3.50

Flights of Angels, My Life with the Angels of Light, by Adrian Brooks. The Angels of Light were a genderfucking hippy performance troupe in the 1970s, growing out of the equally legendary Cockettes in San Francisco. Adrian Brooks was a pivotal member of the Angels; he was the author of many of their shows, and appeared in almost all of their productions during their heyday from late 1974 to 1980. In this vivid memoir, San Francisco in the 1970s comes to life as Brooks recounts the amazing stories of the Angels from behind closed doors, a book that is much about the politics of hippie experience in North America at the time. He also describes his early years as a Pennsylvania youth whose life is transformed by social and political activism: as a radical anti-war Quaker, as a volunteer for Martin Luther King, and later in New York's gallery scene, passing through Andy Warhol's circus before heading west, where the Angels made perfect, beautiful sense of the world. A memoir of the queer seventies counter-culture. Arsenal Pulp Press (ISBN-13: 9781551522319) 272 pages $27.95

FreeWomen of Spain
Free Women of Spain: Anarchism and the Struggle for the Emancipation of Women, by Martha A. Ackelsberg. Cowards don't make history; and the women of Mujeres Libres (Free Women) were no cowards. Courageous enough to create revolutionary change in their daily lives, these women mobilized over 20,000 women into an organized network during the Spanish Revolution to strive for community, education, and equality for women and the emancipation of all. Militants in the anarcho-syndicalist CNT union, Mujeres Libres struggled both against fascism, the state, and reaction; and the less than supportive attitudes and concerns of their male comrades. Martha Ackelsberg writes a comprehensive study of Mujeres Libres, intertwining interviews with the women themselves and analysis connecting them with modern feminist movements. This new edition includes additional research Ackelsberg carried out for the Spanish language edition, together with a brand new introduction written in the light of the new social movements, and resurgence of anarchism, post-Seattle. 287 pages $20.00

Guns for Hire
Guns for Hire: How the CIA and U.S. Army Recruit Mercenaries for White Rhodesia, a historical reprint. A collectors item from the anti-colonial struggles of the seventies. This text details how the US military and CIA colluded with Solider of Fortune magazine and others to send white mercenaries to fight for the Ian Smith regime in Rhodesia. While the nitty gritty details are mainly of historical significance, given the heavy reliance on "contractors" in Iraq and elsewhere, the broad outlines of this work remain relevant today. From the introduction by Jon Dough: "Although the CIA's mercenary operation for Zimbabwe had failed in the end, the machinery remains as a covert weapon that can be restarted and put to use in new imperialist interventions and wars in the Global South. That's why this investigative report still has useful knowledge for everyone tracking the bloody footprints of the u.s. empire."

Hammered by the Irish: How the Pitstop Ploughshares Disabled a U.S. Warplane—With Ireland's Blessing, by Harry Browne with an introduction by Daniel Berrigan. On a damp night in February 2003, as the U.S. prepared to invade Iraq, five Catholic Worker activists scrambled across runways and broke into a hangar at Shannon Airport. Swinging hammers and a pickaxe, they did more than $2.5 million damage to a U.S. Navy transport plane. The five were hit with the full weight of the law, and were quickly condemned by the media and much of the anti-war movement. But three-and-a-half years later a Dublin jury decided they were innocent of any crime. This is the story of how a civilian airport in the west of Ireland became a "Pitstop of Death," and how an act of conscience touched the hearts and minds of twelve jurors, making political and legal history, in an epic of popular resistance. 180 pages - $15.95

How It All Began, The Personal Account of a West German Urban Guerrilla, by Bommi Baumann. The author was a member of the West Berlin Blues scene, out of which emerged the anarchist guerilla 2nd of June Movement in the early seventies. While this book represented Baumann’s turn away from the guerilla (the last chapter is entitled "Terror or Love"), it remains an important document from the period, a glimpse into what it was like to be a working class rebel in the freak counter-culture of the sixties, and how one section of the armed resistance in West Germany emerged from this scene. First published in 1975, the book was immediately banned in Germany - nevertheless, at the time some comrades considered Baumann a traitor, and this book a counter-insurgency work. In retrospect, this seems incorrect, for while the author was clearly moving away from a certain kind of revolutionary politics, he remains honest and sympathetic as he tells the story of his life and struggle against the state. With commentary by Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Heinrich Boell. Arsenal Pulp Press (ISBN: 9780889780453) 131 pages $19.95

The New State Repression, by Ken Lawrence with an introduction by Kristian Williams. First published in 1985, this is a short essay and analysis of the theory (and practice) of permanent repression. It posits that the state now views insurgency of the oppressed as a permanent condition, and hence has reacted accordingly – a strategy of permanent repression as the full-time task of the security forces. The author draws on the theories of low-level counter-insurgency, developed by the British in Northern Ireland and Kenya, and how it was applied here in North America during the Reagan era. For what it’s worth, Ken Lawrence was one of those radicals who had been part of the Sojourner Truth Organization. In this new edition, Kristian Williams points to the continuing relevancy for this analysis today. 24 pages - Tarantula Publishing $3.00

Night-vision: illuminating war and class on the neo-colonial terrain Night-Vision: Illuminating War and Class on the Neo-Colonial Terrain , by Butch Lee and Red Rover. Clearly written from the same pespective as Bottomfish Blues, this book does away with much of the latter's shrill tone and replaces it with cutting-edge theory. Unfortunately I have noticed that many people take a look at the title and decide that this is one of those boring academic books. Nothing could be farther from the truth: this is kick-ass feminism as good as it gets. $14.95 CLICK HERE TO READ A REVIEW!

Outlaws of America; The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity, by Dan Berger. The best book devoted to the Weather Underground so far. Berger is both sympathetic and critical of Weather, but from a left-wing perspective. Unlike other authors who have tackled this subject, Berger is not interested in whining about Weather’s adopting armed struggle against the United States government, but rather examines their successes and failues in living up to their own standards, specifically in regards to anti-racism and anti-sexism. An excellent book. 432 pages - AK Press  $20.00

Definitely not a crimethinc publication!

Pages from Italian Anarchist History
Pages from Italian Anarchist History, by Andrea Ferrari and Aldo Aguzzi. This pamphlet includes two essays - Ferrari's "The Anarchism of the Cervi Brothers" and Aguzzi's "Italian Anarchist Volunteers in Barcelona and the Events of May 1937". These take on two different aspects of the anti-fascist fight: the struggle of the partisans in Reggio Emilia, and the contribution of the Italian volunteers in Spain in 1937. Both essays share a common, tragic, subtext: the sacrificing of libertarian communist revolutionaries (and of the revolutions they fought for) by an "official" Communism dictated from Moscow. In a postscript on the recent trial of comrades in Italy, Greece and Scotland, the continuity of anarchist resistance in Italy, and the need for international solidarity, is shown clearly. 19 pages $2.50


Partisanas: Women in the Armed Resistance to Fascism and German Occupation (1936–1945), by Ingrid Strobl. Common stereotypes of women during wartime relegate them to the sidelines of history  — to supporting roles like dutiful munitions factory workers or devoted wives waiting for their men to return home. The truth is that much of the armed resistance to fascism, before and during World War II, can be chalked up to women about whom official accounts have little or nothing to say. Through years of intrepid research and numerous interviews with the participants themselves, Ingrid Strobl excavates the history of the women who shouldered guns, planned assassinations, planted bombs, and were among the era's most active antifascist fighters. Strobl's commitment to and respect for her subjects has resulted in a work of both scholarly rigor and emotional depth. Weaving moving personal narratives into the broader history of the European resistance, Partisanas is both a detailed historical account and an investigation into what compelled women to reject their traditional roles to take up arms in a fight for a better world.This first English-language edition was translated by Paul Sharkey. Author Ingrid Strobl was herself arrested and charged with membership in the "terrorist" organizations Rote Zora and the Revolutionary Cells in 1987. 300 pages $21.95

People's War... Women's War?
People's War... Women's War? two texts by Comrade Parvati of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) with commentary by Butch Lee. A looik at women's role in the Nepalese Revolution, and the relationship of women to Maoism and revolution in general. The two main texts in this pamphlet are reprints of essays by Comrade Parvati, one of the few women in the central committee of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). In her interview with People's March, and her essay The Question of Women's Leadership in People's War in Nepal, Parvati is refreshingly critical and honest in her appraisal of the role of women in the CPN(M)'s peasant guerilla army, drawing conclusions regarding the connections between patriarchy and the defeat and degeneration of past communist revolutions, and the centrality of women to any successful communist revolution. Commenting on these texts, North American Amazon theorist Butch Lee examines the mixed record of Marxism-Leninism and Maoism in regards to women's liberation, the role of women in armed struggle, and the role of armed struggle in winning and defending freedom and autonomy for women and children.

The Price of Fire: Resource Wars and Social Movements in Bolivia, by Benjamin Dangl.  New social movements have emerged in Bolivia over the “price of fire” – access to basic elements of survival like water, gas, land, coca, employment, and other resources. Though these movements helped pave the way to the presidency for indigenous coca-grower Evo Morales in 2005, they have made it clear that their fight for self-determination doesn’t end at the ballot box. From the first moments of Spanish colonization to today’s headlines, this book offers a gripping account of clashes in Bolivia between corporate and people’s power, contextualizing them regionally, culturally, and historically. 226 pages – $15.95

The Radical Roots of Divers/Cité by Sketchy Thoughts. In 1990 police attacked the Sexgarage party in Montreal’s warehouse district. In retrospect, the subsequent political mobilization looks like the “coming out” of queer politics in Montreal, and as such is commemorated every year in that city’s LGBTA march, “Divers/Cité”. This short pamphlet looks at the context and previous political mobilizations which laid the basis for people feeling empowered to fight back against police violence - the Mohawk Nation’s conflict with the Canadian state, the AIDS activist movement, and previous responses to homophobic violence in Montreal. A previous version of this text appeared on my blog, Sketchy Thoughts. 17 pages $2.00

Reading Capital Politically

Cleaver adds a new preface to the AK Press/Anti-Thesis edition. $15.00


Real Cost of Prisons Comix, by Lois Ahrens. One out of every hundred adults in the U.S. is in prison. This book provides a crash course in what drives mass incarceration, the human and community costs, and how to stop the numbers from going even higher. This volume collects the three comic books published by the Real Cost of Prisons Project. The stories and statistical information in each comic book is thoroughly researched and documented. Prison Town: Paying the Price tells the story of how the financing and site locations of prisons affects the people of rural communities in which prison are built. It also tells the story of how mass incarceration affects people of urban communities where the majority of incarcerated people come from. Prisoners of the War on Drugs includes the history of the war on drugs, mandatory minimums, how racism creates harsher sentences for people of color, stories on how the war on drugs works against women, three strikes laws, obstacles to coming home after incarceration, and how mass incarceration destabilizes neighborhoods. Prisoners of a Hard Life: Women and Their Children includes stories about women trapped by mandatory sentencing and the "costs" of incarceration for women and their families. Also included are alternatives to the present system, a glossary and footnotes.
Over 125,000 copies of the comic books have been printed and more than 75,000 have been sent to families of people who are in prison, people who are inside and to organizers and activists throughout the country. The demand for them is constant and the ways in which they are being used is inspiring. 104 pages $12.95

In an era of privatism, kicks, introversion, and post-modernist nihilism, Murray Bookchin forcefully examines the growing nihilistic trends that threaten to undermine the revolutionary tradition of anarchism and co-opt its fragments into a harmless personalistic, yuppie ideology of social accommodation that presents no threat to the existing powers that be.

The Story of a Proletarian Life
The Story of a Proletarian Life, by Bartolomeo Vanzetti. The name of Vanzetti, like that of his comrade Sacco, resonates — it marks the biting point where revolutionary activism and state repression come to blows. For Sacco and Vanzetti were two Italian anarchist immigrants who were convicted of murdering a factory paymaster with the flimsiest of evidencel; they received the death penalty and were killed in 1927 basically just for being anarchists.  This pamphlet, written in prison, throws a little light on the life of a man who was much more than a poor fish peddler, fighting for liberty and destined for the fame of a martyr. 16 pages $3.00

Strike One to Educate One Hundred
“Strike One to Educate One Hundred” - the rise of the Red Brigades in Italy in the 1960s 1970s, by Chris Aronson Beck, Reggie Emiliana, Lee Morris and Ollie Patterson. Long-rumoured to be out of print, this book is a sympathetic appraisal of the marxist-leninist Red Brigades. The main criticism that can be made of this impressive 200 page photocopied book is that the authors do not deal with the more convoluted and depressing part of the Brigades’ history after the kidnapping and killing of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro in 1978. Nevertheless, a very good read which could serve as an example as to how this kind of subject matter can be dealt with. $21.00

The Subversion of Politics: European Autonomous Social Movements and the Decolonization of Everyday Life, by Georgy Katsiaficas. A welcome examination of the European autonomist left, especially in its strongest centers in (West) Germany and Italy.

A movement (or movements) from which we can all draw inspiration – and learn lessons! 299 pages - AK Press $17.95 US
Suits Me: the double life of Billy Tipton
Suits Me: The Double Life of Billy Tipton , by Diane Wood Middlebrook. In the days before "transgender" was a word, Billy Tipton defied the odds and lived life as a man, marrying five times and fathering several children, despite the fact that he had been born female. This book is valuable as one of the few biographical sources about Tipton, but should be taken with a grain of salt as the author implausibly, and somewhat insultingly, insists that Tipton would not have identified as a man, but as a woman disguing herself in order to be able to make it in a man's world. Nevertheless, i carry this title as its one of the few sources of information about this man, who many consider a FTM pioneer.

We The Anarchists!: A Study Of The Iberian Anarchist Federation (FAI) 1927–1937, by Stuart Christie. Since the official birth of organized anarchism at the Saint-Imier Congress of 1872, no anarchist organization has been held up to greater opprobrium or subjected to such gross misinterpretation than the Federacíon Anarquista Ibérica. Better known by its initials, the FAI was a group of twentieth-century militants dedicated to keeping Spain's largest labor union, the CNT, on a revolutionary, anarcho-syndicalist path.
There are two dimensions to Stuart Christie's indispensable We, the Anarchists! The first is descriptive and historical: it outlines the evolution of the organized anarchist movement in Spain and its relationship with the wider labor movement and, at the same time, providing some insight into the main ideas that made the Spanish labor movement one of the most revolutionary of modern times. The second is analytical, as the book addresses—from an anarchist perspective—the problem of understanding and coping with change in the contemporary world; how can ideals survive the process of institutionalization?

Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical History, by Staughton Lynd and Andrej Grubacic. Wobblies and Zapatistas offers the reader an encounter between two generations and two traditions. Andrej Grubacic is an anarchist from the Balkans. Staughton Lynd is a lifelong pacifist, influenced by Marxism. They meet in dialogue in an effort to bring together the anarchist and Marxist traditions, to discuss the writing of history by those who make it, and to remind us of the idea that "my country is the world." Encompassing a Left libertarian perspective and an emphatically activist standpoint, these conversations are meant to be read in the clubs and affinity groups of the new Movement. The authors accompany us on a journey through modern revolutions, direct actions, anti-globalist counter summits, Freedom Schools, Zapatista cooperatives, Haymarket and Petrograd, Hanoi and Belgrade,  'intentional' communities, wildcat strikes, early Protestant communities, Native American democratic practices, the Workers' Solidarity Club of Youngstown, occupied factories, self-organized councils and soviets, the lives of forgotten revolutionaries, Quaker meetings, antiwar movements, and prison rebellions. Neglected and forgotten moments of interracial self-activity are brought to light. The book invites the attention of readers who believe that a better world, on the other side of capitalism and state bureaucracy, may indeed be possible. 300 pages $20.00

With uncompromising integrity, The World Split Open challenges us to understand how the women’s movement has forever altered our lives and why the revolution is far from over.
