Join the Friends of AK Press...every spark matters!
Things are heating up. Crisis is the rule, not the exception. A nervous ruling class is pushing "solutions" like repression, austerity, and devastation-as-usual. We need to push—and build—our own alternatives. That means getting even more radical and anarchist ideas into people's hands and heads. We need to fan the flames.
But hard times hit us much harder than they hit the bosses and bureaucrats. That's why the Friends of AK Press program exists. It's a way for people to support anarchist publishing, each kicking in a little...a little that adds up to a lot more revolutionary texts circulating through our society.
Friends of AK Press is how we keep publishing around twenty books per year. It's how we've put out huge anthologies of writings by important anarchist thinkers like Proudhon, Kropotkin, and Malatesta. It's how we publish crucial anti-authoritarian analyses of current issues from queer liberation to housing struggles. It's how we help today's revolutionaries find new relevance in radical history.
We want to publish more. Books like James Tracy's Dispatches Against Displacement, which explores the battle for urban space in San Francisco and beyond; Dawn Paley's Drug War Capitalism, about how the war on drugs helps big business; the first study of Italian anarchist and feminist Leda Rafanelli in English; a history of militant anti-fascism; social theorist Raul Zibechi's The New Brazil; the ten-volume Complete Works of Malatesta; and more.
