Until the Rulers Obey: A review by Staughton Lynd in Z Magazine

“…Until the Rulers Obey cannot be understood without recognizing this dialogic or dialectical context of Latin American leftism. It is as if Barack Obama, besides having once been a community organizer, had throughout his presidency been obliged to encounter grassroots organizations of varying character and strength but all intent on reminding the president what he had advocated before his election...The book is made up of interviews, with an introduction for each country. It moves North to South, beginning with Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador..." —Staughton Lynd, Z Magazine

Staughton Lynd's Solidarity Unionism reviewed on Counterpunch

"Workplace solidarity in the face of the neoliberal onslaught is as crucial as ever, yet present-day unions become ever more fearful. How do we build solidarity in an era when the tools of the past have lost their effectiveness?

New types of organizations are not only necessary, it is essential to look at past upsurges in union activity, particularly those of the 1930s, with clear eyes rather than romanticization, argues Staughton Lynd in Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below. A new re-issue and updating of a classic work, the book has lost none of its timeliness. Critical to understanding how unions lost their way, becoming too cozy with the corporate managements they are supposed to challenge, is the stifling of rank-and-file activity, particularly of militant tactics, by Congress of Industrial Organization (CIO) unions in the 1930s." —

The Big Gay Alphabet Coloring Book A Review in BookRiot

"Adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and I can’t think of a more perfect topic than LGBTQP (their acronym) culture. The book covers 26 terms that highlight LGBT history and culture. While I have to admit that all of the terms didn’t make sense to me (A was for Astrology for example–and none of the LGBT folks I know really take stock in it), the illustrations are darling and turn the focus away from the idea of heteronormality. Plus–coloring!" —Susie Rodarme, BookRiot

Chris Crass's Towards Collective Liberation reviewed in The Socialist Worker

"TOWARDS COLLECTIVE Liberation is composed of four distinct, but related parts: Crass' autobiographical journey into radical politics; a social/political history of Food Not Bombs in the 1990s; an exposition of Crass' critique of oppression and capitalism; and a series of interviews with a variety of anti-racist and anti-poverty organizers from the Bay Area and beyond.

Bringing these strands together into a whole is at times a challenge, but Crass' conviction that a "vibrant and healthy democratic and socialist society" is within our reach helps bring the book into focus. Readers will be inspired by his optimism..."—Todd Chretien,
