Inspired by the legacy of radical and queer black feminists of the 1970s and ‘80s, this anthology centers on mothers of color and marginalized mothers’ voices.

Based on three recent lectures that focus on what anticapitalist revolution can mean today—after the historic failure of the idea that the conquest of state power was the key to radical change.
Let’s not let disaster capitalism take away our focus, and our demands for a more just world.

A single mother with a cocaine side-hustle. A stock market crash. Opportunistic stock traders and cocaine-futures. Sounds fun and a bit too relevant, right?

When both levees and governments failed in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the anarchist-inspired Common Ground Collective was created to fill the void. Equal parts memoir, history, and organizing philosophy, the book vividly intertwines Common Ground cofounder scott crow’s experiences and ideas with Katrina’s reality, illustrating how people can build local grassroots power for collective liberation.

This book poses the question of what kind of world we are going to leave to our children.
Between the Yellow Vest protests in Paris, the coming onslaught of climate change, and (of course) the life-changing pandemic crossing the world, this question could not be more relevant.

Do you have e-Books that work with *my* Kindle/Nook/iPad?

Yes we do. Look at the formats below to figure out which one you’d like.

Types of e-Book formats available:

  • PDF – This is the most common digital format for e-Books, created by Adobe Systems for their Acrobat reader. e-Book readers from Barnes & Noble (Nook), Sony (Reader), and Amazon (Kindle) can read this format natively, BUT, since most PDFs are created to match page size of the print version of a title, the smaller reader screens may not provide the best reading experience. PDF files can be converted to other formats more suitable for these readers.
  • MOBI / PRC – This is a standard developed by a company in France for all PDAs (personal digital assistants) and is one of the native formats supported by the Amazon Kindle.
  • ePUB – This is based on an open standard and is one of the native formats readable by the Sony reader. The iPad and the Nook can also open ePUB files. 

The benefit to ePUB and MOBI/PRC formats is that the page layout, text, and images of the book are scaled appropriately for the size of the reader device, whereas PDF tries to maintain the original layout, which can make the content hard to read.
