"The Global Imagination of 1968 is a guide to mobilizing the creativity to resist, disrupt, and change..."

 

“Katsiaficas provides today’s activists with the wider historical context for action. The Global Imagination of 1968 is a guide to mobilizing the creativity to resist, disrupt, and change the lingering racism and patriarchal structures, attitudes, and economic systems that still restrict our freedom—a challenging task now that the organs of social control are militarized and often act with impunity.

Despite what appears to have been the failure of the New Left, Katsiaficas declares that its passionate challenge to the establishment left an amazing legacy of global progress and the advancement of values and ideals that can fire the imagination and nurture the dreams of a new generation of activists..."

New T-Shirt: Anarcho-Syndicalist Gadsden - Out Now!

 

This design combines the tried and true red and black Anarcho-Syndicalist flag with the rattlesnake and slightly modified text of the Gadsden flag, repurposing it to meet OUR needs and issue a warning to the established hierarchy not to question our commitment or solidarity. The back features a small modern rendering of the three arrows symbol originally used by the antifascist Iron Front.

Red ink on a Black union-made shirt.

Girl Gangs, Biker Boys, and Real Cool Cats in Booklist

 

"Drawing on nearly two dozen contributors, and incorporating essays, interviews, and profiles of authors and notable titles, they survey the lurid literature written about and for juvenile delinquents, beats and bohemians, disaffected British youth, hippies and other counterculture types, musicians and groupies, and bikers and wannabes. In the final chapter, they demonstrate the important role pulpy teen novels played in the rise of today’s YA juggernaut. The lurid, lewd, hilarious, awful, and awesome book-cover reproductions are an obvious draw, but there’s scholarship here, too. A highlight for fans of low culture..."—Keir Graff, Booklist

"Pictures of a Gone City is a masterwork."

 

"With a historical perspective going back to the Gold Rush and a scope covering the entire region, concentrating on the world’s most advanced industry, and surveying a complex, ever-developing diversity of people, Pictures of a Gone City is a masterwork. It’s the one book that has helped me get a mental focus on the Bay Area today much as The Ohlone Way captured the area in the distant past. Gone City belongs in the library of every person who wants to know in rich and colorful detail what the amazing Bay Area is really about."—Martin Nicolaus,
Berkeleyside

  • TRUMP, LYNCH, AND WHO WE CALL ANIMALS: A SAFETY ALERT

  • Human Flow: a film by Ai WeiWei
    For a film with ‘flow’ in its title, the only surprise in this superlative documentary is that the most powerful images are those of stillness. An old refugee woman sits incongruously on a bench in the middle of nowhere. A young man...
  • Israel & The Labour Party - A Love Story

  • On and On Do They Imprison the Strong
    The dynamic power of so many prison memoirs, acounts, and anecdotes is paradoxically reliant on the monotony and stasis of the prison environment. The fertile conscience keeps mobile despite the body forced to be stuck and remote.
