53 Prison Round Trip (PM Pamphlet)
Viehmann, Klaus PM Press 1604860820 / 9781604860825 PAPERBACK New 
1604860820 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 28 p. stapled pamphlet During the first five or six years of my imprisonment, I learned the survival strategies that got me through the last ten. These are the experiences I'm summarizing here. Bang. door to your cell is shut. You have survived the arrest, you are mad that you weren t more careful, you worry that they will get others too, you wonder what will happen to your group and whether a lawyer has been called yet of course you show none of this. weapon, the fake papers, your own clothes, all gone. prison garb and the shoes they ve thrown at you are too big maybe because they want to play silly games with you, maybe because they really blow terrorists out of proportion in their minds and the control over your own appearance taken out of your hands. You look around, trying to get an understanding of where you ll spend the next few years of your life. Prison Round Trip was first published in German in 2003 as Einmal Knast und zur?ck. essay s author, Klaus Viehmann, had been released from prison ten years earlier, after completing a 15-year sentence for his involvement in urban guerilla activities in Germany in the 1970s. essay was subsequently reprinted in various forums. It is a reflection on prison life and on how to keep one s sanity and political integrity within the hostile and oppressive prison environment; survival strategies are its central theme. Einmal Knast und zur?ck soon found an audience extending beyond Germany s borders. Thanks to translations by comrades and radical distribution networks, it has since been eagerly discussed amongst political prisoners from Spain to Greece. This is the first time the text is available to a wider English-speaking audience. Klaus s take on survival strategy tells us we can not only survive thusly but can as well continue to serve the cause of liberation which are really the same thing. We can be captured without giving in or giving up. from the Preface by North American political prisoner Bill Dunne.

Today, over seven million people live under the control of U.S. jail, prison, probation, or parole systems the vast majority of them people of color and young people. Between 2000 and 2007, Congress added 454 new offences to the Federal criminal code. Policing at all levels is increasingly militarized and demands more and more resources. crisis shows no signs of slowing. For a decade, Critical Resistance has organized to abolish the reliance on imprisonment, policing, and surveillance, seeing the prison industrial complex not as a broken system to be "fixed, " but a well-oiled machine that must be eliminated entirely. Published in honor of Critical Resistance's tenth anniversary, Abolition Now! reflects the themes Dismantle, Change, and Build. It presents bold strategies to create a stronger movement of people committed to PIC abolition and build healthy communities free from surveillance, policing, and imprisonment. Contributors Include: Incite! Women of Color Against Violence, David Gilbert, Martha Escobar, Liz Samuels and David Stein, Dylan Rodr?guez, and Eddy Zheng "As new and more virulent articulations of imprisonment, policing, and surveillance have grown over the past decade, one thing remains clear: the prison industrial complex must be abolished. Critical Resistance is a leading voice in the movement for abolition and the pieces in this collection are powerful tools for both long-time activists and those brand new to the movement for abolition now! " Angela Y. Davis, author of Are Prisons Obsolete? "Abolition does not just demand that we close prisons; it demands that we open the means by which all people can live lives of security, opportunity, and beauty. A decade has passed since Critical Resistance expanded and redefined anti-prison activism. new movement has grown, but the prison industrial complex continues to eat us alive.

55 Queer Ultraviolence: Bash Back! Anthology by Baroque, Fray & Eanelli, Tegan
Baroque, Fray & Eanelli, Tegan Ardent Press New 
This is a Bash Back! anthology. It takes a peek at the radical Queer tendency and/or (non)organization from 2007 to 2011. The anthology includes interviews, analysis, communiques, and other documents relating to Bash Back! and the tendency that it spawned. We view queer as the blurring of sexual and gender identities. Queer is the refusal of fixed identities. It is a war on all identity. In line with the Bash Back! tendency, for the uses of this anthology queer is trans because the gender binary is inherently oppressive. More often than not, our use of the term queer is interchangeable with our use of trans, though that is not necessarily true of the way in which trans-whatever is used. With these notions we are not na?ve. We acknowledge that society ensures Queer is an oppressed identity. Anti-Queer oppression is the systematic violence that people who fall outside of traditional sexual or gender categories encounter. What others are saying about Queer Ultraviolence: a Bash Back! anthology: Bash Back: If Democracy doesn?t work, try anarchy! -Chuck Norris. [Bash Back!] reflects the ways that mobs conducted themselves in the underworld. They are methods gangs use to control their turf. They are the wiles that the KGB used to suppress their enemies. But this is the United States of America?Revenge or retribution is not the American way. Is militant antagonism and vengeful aggression really the best Americans can offer to other Americans who oppose them? -Chuck Noris. A mob of gay terrorists -Bill O?Reilly. What troubles me so deeply, and should trouble all thinking Americans, is that there is a real, unbroken line between the jihadist savagery in Mumbai and the hedonistic, irresponsible, blindly selfish goals and tactics of our homegrown sexual jihadists. -Pat Boone. Give me a FUCKING break! The Mormon Church and the Greek riots are totally unconnected! -Chuck0

59 Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women
Law, Victoria PM Press 1604865830 / 9781604865837 PAPERBACK New 
1604865830 ~NEW. No DJ, as issued. Trade Paperback. Brand new; satisfaction guaranteed. In 1974, women imprisoned at New York's maximum-security prison at Bedford Hills staged what is known as the August Rebellion. Protesting the brutal beating of a fellow prisoner, the women fought off guards, holding seven of them hostage, and took over sections of the prison. While many have heard of the 1971 Attica prison uprising, the August Rebellion remains relatively unknown even in activist circles. Resistance Behind Bars is determined to challenge and change such oversights. As it examines daily struggles against appalling prison conditions and injustices, Resistance documents both collective organizing and individual resistance among women incarcerated in the U.S. Emphasizing women's agency in resisting the conditions of their confinement through forming peer education groups, clandestinely arranging ways for children to visit mothers in distant prisons and raising public awareness about their lives, Resistance seeks to spark further discussion and research into the lives of incarcerated women and galvanize much-needed outside support for their struggles. This updated and revised edition of the 2009 PASS Award winning book includes a new chapter about transgender, transsexual, intersex, and gender-variant people in prison.

60 Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle (Common Notions)
Federici, Silvia PM Press 1604863331 / 9781604863338 PAPERBACK New 
1604863331 Written between 1974 and the present, Revolution at Point Zero collects forty years of research and theorizing on the nature of housework, social reproduction, and women?s struggles on this terrain?to escape it, to better its conditions, to reconstruct it in ways that provide an alternative to capitalist relations. Indeed, as Federici reveals, behind the capitalist organization of work and the contradictions inherent in ?alienated labor? is an explosive ground zero for revolutionary practice upon which are decided the daily realities of our collective reproduction. Beginning with Federici?s organizational work in the Wages for Housework movement, the essays collected here unravel the power and politics of wide but related issues including the international restructuring of reproductive work and its effects on the sexual division of labor, the globalization of care work and sex work, the crisis of elder care, the development of affective labor, and the politics of the commons.

For more information about a specific title please feel free to contact us with your questions. After San Francisco's new mayor announced imminent plans to "clean up" downtown with a new corporate "dot com corridor" and arts district--featuring the new headquarters of Twitter and Burning Man--curators Erick Lyle, Chris Johanson and Kal Spelletich brought over 100 artists and activists together with residents fearing displacement to consider utopian aspirations and plot alternative futures for the city. The resulting exhibition, Streetopia, was a massive anti-gentrification art fair that took place in venues throughout the city, featuring daily free talks, performances, skillshares and a free community kitchen out of the gallery. This book brings together all of the art and ephemera from the now-infamous show, featuring work by Swoon, Barry McGee, Emory Douglas, Monica Canilao, Rigo 23, Xara Thustra, Ryder Cooley and many more. Essays and interviews with key participants consider the effectiveness of Streetopia's projects while offering a deeper rumination on the continuing search for community in today's increasingly homogenous and gentrified cities.

19 Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed
Diamond, Jared Penguin Books 0143036556 / 9780143036555 PAPERBACK New 
0143036556 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 576 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. This book employs the comparative method to understand societal collapses to which environmental problems contribute. My previous book (Guns, Germs, and Steel: Fates of Human Societies), had applied the comparative method to the opposite problem: the differing rates of buildup of human societies on different continents over the last 13, 000 years. In the present book focusing on collapses rather than buildups, I compare many past and present societies that differed with respect to environmental fragility, relations with neighbors, political institutions, and other "input" variables postulated to influence a society's stability. "output" variables that I examine are collapse or survival, and form of the collapse if collapse does occur. By relating output variables to input variables, I aim to tease out the influence of possible input variables on collapses.

20 Communication Revolution: Critical Junctures and the Future of Media
McChesney, Robert W. The New Press 1595584137 / 9781595584137 PAPERBACK New 
1595584137 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 301 p. Audience: General/trade. In Communication Revolution both a sharp and cogent analysis of the history of media studies and a clarion call for citizen participation Robert McChesney argues that with the Internet and wireless technology set to overtake traditional media, we have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build a more egalitarian communication system. He brilliantly shows how communication scholarship has failed to rise to the challenge of conceiving what this system might look like, leaving it to the burgeoning media reform movement (in which he has been a key player) to fill the vision vacuum. Bringing both his authoritative analysis and unparalleled historical knowledge to bear on an urgent issue of our time, McChesney challenges us to transform the way we think about media. As Noam Chomsky has said, Robert McChesney s work has been of extraordinary importance..It should be read with care and concern by people who care about freedom and basic rights.

Audience: General/trade. Medium is the Massage remains Marshall McLuhan's most popular book, perhaps as influential as Understanding Media. It is still one of the most insightful and provocative works ever to have been published on our modern culture. With every technological advance, McLuhan's theories reveal how prescient his insights actually proved to be. His thought is a guide to understanding environments, especially new ones as they enter and pervade society, like the computer is doing to biology and science (McLuhan heralded the marriage of electronics and biology) and how the world wide web is threatening to liberate the old information monopolies from governments and big corporations. Marshall McLuhan's books are published in more than a dozen languages. He is widely considered to be the most original thinker of the twentieth century. Quentin Fiore is one of America's most distinguished graphic designers and perhaps the most successful of all McLuhan collaborators. Jerome Agel has written and produced more than fifty books, including original visual interpretations of Marshall McLuhan's and Buckminster Fuller's work.

1583671056 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Pacific Northwest Independent Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 367 p. Audience: General/trade. symptoms of the crisis of the U.S. media are well-known a decline in hard news, the growth of info-tainment and advertorials, staff cuts and concentration of ownership, increasing conformity of viewpoint and suppression of genuine debate. McChesney's new book, Problem of the Media, gets to the roots of this crisis, explains it, and points a way forward for the growing media reform movement. Moving consistently from critique to action, the book explores the political economy of the media, illuminating its major flashpoints and controversies by locating them in the political economy of U.S. capitalism. It deals with issues such as the declining quality of journalism, the question of bias, the weakness of the public broadcasting sector, and the limits and possibilities of antitrust legislation in regulating the media. It points out the ways in which the existing media system has become a threat to democracy, and shows how it could be made to serve the interests of the majority. McChesney's Rich Media, Poor Democracy was hailed as a pioneering analysis of the way in which media had come to serve the interests of corporate profit rather than public enlightenment and debate. Bill Moyers commented, "If Thomas Paine were around, he would have written this book. " Problem of the Media is certain to be a landmark in media studies, a vital resource for media activism, and essential reading for concerned scholars and citizens everywhere.

38 Living in Liberation: Boundary Setting, Self Care and Social Change

1483566684 Brand New; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. Support Last Word Books & Press and independent booksellers. What happens when a collection of artists, musicians, and activists grapple with the violent assault and murder of one of their friends? What happens when they refuse to give in to fear and focus their anger and pain on ways to imagine self-defense as a revolutionary tool for social justice? For over two decades, Cristien Storm has grappled with these questions as a self-defense instructor, writer, therapist, activist, survivor, partner, friend, and community member. As a co- founder and former Executive Director of Home Alive, an anti-violence organization that offers self-defense and boundary setting classes on a sliding scale formed in response to the brutal rape and murder of singer Mia Zapata, Cristien Storm developed self-defense programs that recognize the link between the concepts of self-defense and social change. Living in Liberation outlines this innovative and radical approach to self-defense that challenges those practicing boundary setting and self-care to see themselves not simply as individuals but also as local, national, and global community members. Living in Liberation argues that responses to violence can and should embody boundary setting, self-care, and self-defense skills that interrupt victim-blaming, fear-based approaches and locate healing within the social context of community. Living in Liberation roots boundary setting and self-care in larger visions of happier and healthier communities, all the while holding on to the complexities of individual safety and social justice. There are many books on boundaries. Most of them have good skills to share. What Living in Liberation offers that is unique is a simple, direct approach to boundaries and boundary setting that reflects the complexity of the world we live in while offering practical tools. This book looks deeply at how oppression (racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, ageism) and privilege impact the context and interpersonal environments in which our boundary setting occurs. Living in Liberation looks beyond physical self-defense and individual safety to important issues connected with setting, maintaining, and negotiating personal boundaries within larger social context and makes links and connections between self-care, community care, social justice, healing from individual and collective trauma, and social change. Living in Liberation is a practical reference on how to set boundaries, limits and negotiate interpersonal needs and wants in a variety of contexts and conditions. The book offer readers suggestions on how to set boundaries, create self-care goals, identify and address challenges, and understand the complexity of intuition as part of self-defense. In addition, readers are invited to explore larger social context and form their own connections between self-care, community care, social justice, and social change. Storm also includes exercises culled from years of developing and facilitating anti-violence and boundary setting curricula as well as her experience working with trauma survivors as a mental health therapist. Living in Liberation is an important reference for readers looking for boundary setting skills as well as a practical resource for those who wish to dive deeper into considering self-care and social change. This book is for any one who has ever struggled with boundaries and everyone who wants to not only improve their relationships, but work to make a better world. The book is a great resource for support, discussion or study groups.

40 Lucasville: The Untold Story of a Prison Uprising
Lynd, Staughton PM Press 1604862246 / 9781604862249 PAPERBACK New 
1604862246 Lucasville tells the story of one of the longest prison uprisings in United States history. At the maximum security Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio, prisoners seized a major area of the prison on Easter Sunday, 1993. More than 400 prisoners held L block for eleven days. Nine prisoners alleged to have been informants, or "snitches," and one hostage correctional officer, were murdered. There was a negotiated surrender. Thereafter, almost wholly on the basis of testimony by prisoner informants who received deals in exchange, five spokespersons or leaders were tried and sentenced to death, and more than a dozen others received long sentences. Lucasville examines both the causes of the disturbance, what happened during the eleven days, and the fairness of the trials. Particular emphasis is placed on the inter-racial character of the action, as evidenced in the slogans that were found painted on walls after the surrender: "Black and White Together," "Convict Unity," and "Convict Race." An eloquent Foreword by Mumia Abu-Jamal underlines these themes. He states, as does the book, that the men later sentenced to death "sought to minimize violence, and indeed, according to substantial evidence, saved the lives of several men, prisoner and guard alike." Of the five men, three black and two white, who were sentenced to death, Mumia declares: "They rose above their status as prisoners, and became, for a few days in April 1993, what rebels in Attica had demanded a generation before them: men. As such, they did not betray each other; they did not dishonor each other; they reached beyond their prison "tribes" to reach commonality.

1604860707 At the end of the millennium, thousands of homeless people roamed the streets of Manhattan. A small group of them went underground. Invisible to society, they managed to start a new life in the tunnel systems of the city. Acclaimed war photographer and cultural anthropologist Teun Voeten gained unprecedented access to this netherworld. For five months in 1994 and 1995 he lived, slept and worked in the tunnel. With him, we meet Vietnam veterans, macrobiotic hippies, crack addicts, Cuban refugees, convicted killers, computer programmers, philosophical recluses and criminal runaways. Voeten describes their daily work, problems and pleasures with humor and compassion. He also witnessed the end of tunnel life. tunnel people were evicted in 1996, but Amtrak and homeless organizations offered them alternative housing. Some succeeded in starting again above ground, while others failed. In this updated version of the book, Voeten tracks down the original tunnel dwellers and describes what has happened in the thirteen years since they left the tunnels.

46 Our Media, Not Theirs: The Democratic Struggle against Corporate Media (Open Media Series)
John Nichols; Robert W. McChesney Seven Stories Press 1583225498 / 9781583225493 PAPERBACK New 
1583225498 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 140 p. Open Media Books. Audience: General/trade. Our Media, Not Theirs! Democratic Struggle Against Corporate Media examines how the current media system in the United States undermines democracy, and what we can do to change it. McChesney and Nichols begin by detailing how the media system has come to be dominated by a handful of transnational conglomerates that use their immense political and economic power to saturate the population with commercial messages. They reveal how journalism, electoral politics, entertainment, art and culture have all suffered as a result, and use examples of media coverage of the 2000 Presidential Elections and War On Terrorism to illustrate the poverty of information corporate media actually provide. McChesney and Nichols also explain how that the Internet, which many once argued would open up the media system to a cornucopia of new voices and creativity, has been lost for the most part to the corporate communication system.

49 Pedagogy of Freedom: Ethics, Democracy, and Civic Courage (Critical Perspectives Series: A Book Series Dedicated to Paulo Freire)
Paulo Freire Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 0847690474 / 9780847690473 PAPERBACK New 
0847690474 Braiding bold vision with precision, Freire, in his brilliance, allows us to imagine a tomorrow of democracy and freedom. Insisting on the 'incompleteness' of us all and on a 'dreamer's right to dream,' Pedagogy of Freedom reminds us that our work is never done; that change is always possible, always essential, always unfinished." Michelle Fine, City University of New York - "With Pedagogy of Freedom, Paulo Freire enriches the dialogical perspectives with a call for universal ethics that establishes a better foundation for education in the next century." Ram'on Flecha, University of Barcelona Spain - "Pedagogy of Freedom is a stirring culmination of Paulo Freire's life work. It is in no way a conclusion or a summation: it is a text that urges its readers to become, to reach towards still untapped possibility. The themes of Freire's earlier writing are extended here into thoughtful explorations of ethics and democracy and the ways in which they may release a sence of agency in the long exploited and cruelly silenced. Moreover, he has new things to say about ideology and freedom in a world marked by a threatening 'globalization' and an unprecedented manipulation by media. As before, he speaks of 'passion,' 'love,' and 'caring,' and each time he does so, it is as if his hand grasps each one of our shoulders, urging us on and on." Maxine Green, professor emeritus, Columbia University

50 People's Park: Still Blooming
Slingshot 0984120807 / 9780984120802 PAPERBACK New 
0984120807 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! 190 p. People's Park in Berkeley was born when a diverse coalition of activists seized a vacant lot to build a park in 1969. authorities reacted violently, leading to riots in which police shot into crowds, killing one bystander and wounding over 100 people. battle over People's Park became a symbol for the battles of the 1960s between the counter-culture and mainstream society. While the dramatic story of the Park's violent creation in 1969 has been thoroughly told, no book until now has brought the story up to date. This book illustrates how the Park is still a living counter-cultural experiment and a model for do-it-yourself ecological and social direct action. book features hundreds of historical images and photographs of the Park's present uses: as a community garden and native plant repository; as a liberated zone for concerts and political rallies; and as one of the few places open to all people rich and poor, homeless and housed in an increasingly consumer-dominated Berkeley. book uses interviews, news clipping, political tracts, and primary documents to show how generations of activists have fought to allow the users of the Park to control its development, operation, and maintenance embodying the principal of user development in the face of constant police repression.
