An Anarchist FAQ: Volume 2
Edited by Iain McKay · AK Press
PB ISBN: 9781849351225 · Preorder for $18.75!
We published An Anarchist FAQ: Volume 1 a few years back, and ever since then folks have been asking when Volume 2 would be out. Well, the wait is over!
Aimed at the curious and, as yet, unconverted, and covering topics from "Why do anarchists oppose State Socialism?" to "What would an anarchist society look like?" the two-volume An Anarchist FAQ stands as the go-to reference for what anarchists believe, what they want, and how they intend to go about it. Find out what all the fuss is about!
Nine-Tenths of the Law: Property and Resistance in the United States Hannah Dobbz · AK Press
PB ISBN: 9781849351188 · Preorder for $15.75!
How does "property" fit into designs for an equitable society? Nine-Tenths of the Law examines the history of squatting and property struggles in the US, from colonialism to 20th-century urban squatting and the foreclosure crisis of the late 2000s, and how such resistance movements shape the law. Nine-Tenths of the Law expands our understanding of property law and highlights recent tactics like creative squatting ventures and the use of adverse possession to claim title to vacant homes. With this book, hailed by Mike Davis as "A brilliant history of squatting in the USA," author (and former squatter) Hannah Dobbz unveils the tangled relationship Americans have always had with property.

Bedtime Stories for the Edge of the World
Shawna Dempsey & Lorri Millan · Arbeiter Ring
HB ISBN: 9781894037822 · $16.00
Into their re-imaginings of colonial North American myths, artists Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan have inserted women who question puritanical values of good and evil, right and wrong; the eight short stories of this volume span the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, exploring the distinctly North American fictions that justice and equality exist, that infinite growth is feasible and desirable, and that anything is possible. Pirate queens, inventrixes and sideshow performers stumble through tall tales usually reserved for Lone Rangers and Horatio Algers; plucky spinsters, religious zealots, deities and office workers challenge well-worn fables that continue to shape North America's notion of itself and its dreams for the future. These rollicking yarns of personal survival are set amidst shifting frontiers of power and possibility.
Marina Sitrin & Dario Azzellini · Zuccotti Park Press
PB ISBN: 9781884519093 · $9.95
Occupying Language is an open conversation. Through it, Marina Sitrin and Dario Azzellini invite readers to join them listen to insurgent movements that have been organizing in Latin America over the past twenty years, and to connect key concepts and language from those struggles with movements in the United States today. "Language is not neutral," write Azzellini and Sitrin, "words transport and express concepts and ways of thinking. They can consolidate and perpetuate hierarchies, domination and control just as they can underline equality and strengthen consciousness."
