About Haymarket Books

Haymarket Books is a nonprofit, progressive book distributor and publisher.
We believe that activists need to take ideas, history, and politics into the many
struggles for social justice today. Learning the lessons of past victories, as well as
defeats, can arm a new generation of fighters for a better world. As Karl Marx
said, “The philosophers have merely interpreted the world; the point, however,
is to change it.”
“I am so glad Haymarket is here and thriving. We need left publishers, a left
intellectual community, and never more than now when the streets are beginning to rumble.”
—Frances Fox Piven, City University of New York
“Haymarket is one of the very few publishers to capture the voices of the movements that are happening right now. Thanks to all of you at Haymarket for
getting our stories out there.”
—José Vasquez, Iraq Veterans Against the War

The honor lies in being associated with a publishing house that shows true
dignity and honesty.”

Tomas Young’s War
Mark Wilkerson

Tomas Young’s War is the tragic yet life-affirming story of a paralyzed Iraq War veteran who spent his last
ten years battling heroically with his injuries, while
courageously speaking against America’s wars before
his death in 2014. Based on hours of interviews with
Young and those closest to him, this emotional and
powerful book sheds light on many crucial but often
overlooked issues such as veterans’ health care, public attitudes toward the disabled, medical marijuana,
and the terminally ill.
“Tomas Young became one of the most powerful and eloquent voices denouncing the war. He served as the conscience of the nation. And although his life
was cut short, his is the final word on a war that should have never been fought.”
—Chris Hedges
“There is nothing more courageous than a soldier who stands up against an
unjust war. Tomas Young was a true American hero.”
—Tom Morello
“Before another commander in chief swaggers before the news cameras and
declares, ‘Bring it on,’ I urge him (her) to read this book.”
—Phil Donahue, from the foreword
Mark Wilkerson spent eight years in the United States Army as an AH-1 Cobra & UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crew chief with the 3rd Infantry & 101st
Airborne Divisions. He was deployed with the 101st to Mogadishu, Somalia.
Mark lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife Melissa and three children.

Brazil’s Dance
with the Devil
The World Cup, the Olympics,
and the Struggle for Democracy
Updated Olympics Edition
Dave Zirin

The people of Brazil celebrated when they learned
that in the space of two years their country would
host the world’s two largest sporting events: the
World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016. Now they are protesting in numbers the
country hasn’t seen in decades.
Relying on fieldwork from Rio to the halls of power in Washington, DC, Dave Zirin exposes
how sports and politics have collided in spectacular fashion. One of the Boston Globe’s “Best
Sports Books of 2014,” this new update assesses the final tally of debt and displacement
that accompanied the 2014 World Cup, and includes eyewitness accounts of the militarized
police crackdown and new reporting on the pre-Olympic plans furthering immiseration in
cities across Brazil.
“People think speaking truth to power is easy, but if it was easy everyone would
do it. This book does it. . . . It speaks truth to the powers that be, from Brazil to
the US to FIFA to the IOC. It hits you like an uppercut that rattles your brain
and sets it straight. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”
—Dr. John Carlos, 1968 Olympic medalist
Dave Zirin is sports correspondent for the Nation magazine and the author
of nine books on the intersection of sports and politics. Named one of UTNE
Reader’s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Our World,” Zirin is a frequent

Exoneree Diaries
The Fight for Innocence,
Independence, and Identity
Alison Flowers

Through intimate portraits of four exonerated prisoners, journalist Alison Flowers explores what happens
to innocent people when the state flings open the
jailhouse door and tosses them back, empty-handed,
into the unknown. From the front lines of the wrongful conviction capital of the United States—Cook
County, Illinois—these stories reveal serious gaps in the criminal justice system. Flowers
depicts the collateral damage of wrongful convictions on families and communities, challenging the deeper problem of mass incarceration in the United States. As she tells each exoneree’s powerful story, Flowers vividly shows that release from prison, though sometimes
joyous and hopeful, is not a Hollywood ending—or an ending at all. Rather, an exoneree’s
first unshackled steps are the beginning of a new journey full of turmoil and triumph.
Based on a yearlong multimedia series by Chicago Public Media’s WBEZ—a finalist for a
national Online Journalism Award—this narrative piece of investigative journalism tells
profoundly human stories of reclaiming one’s life, overcoming adversity, and searching for
purpose—at times with devastating consequences and courageous breakthroughs.
Alison Flowers is an award-winning investigative journalist who focuses on social and criminal justice. A former TV reporter, Flowers has also written for the
Village Voice, VICE News, and others. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

of Imagination
Arundhati Roy

The End of Imagination brings together five of
Arundhati Roy’s acclaimed books of essays into one
comprehensive volume for the first time and features a new introduction by the author. This new collection begins with her pathbreaking book The Cost
of Living—published soon after she won the Booker
Prize for her novel The God of Small Things—in which
she forcefully condemned India’s nuclear tests and
its construction of enormous dam projects that continue to displace countless people from
their homes and communities. The End of Imagination also includes her nonfiction works
Power Politics, War Talk, Public Power in the Age of Empire, and An Ordinary Person’s Guide
to Empire, which include her widely circulated and inspiring writings on the US invasions
of Afghanistan and Iraq, the need to confront corporate power, and the hollowing out of
democratic institutions globally.
Praise for Field Notes on Democracy:
“Gorgeously wrought . . . pitch-perfect prose . . . In language of terrible beauty,
she takes India’s everyday tragedies and reminds us to be outraged all over again.”
“The fierceness with which Arundhati Roy loves humanity moves my heart.”
—Alice Walker
Arundhati Roy is a world-renowned Indian author and global justice activist.
From her celebrated Booker–Prize winning novel The God of Small Things to
her prolific output of writing on topics ranging from climate change to war, the
perils of free-market development in India, and the defense of the poor, Roy’s
voice has become indispensable to millions seeking a better world.

Crisis Deepens
Essays on the Global
Economic Meltdown
Richard Wolff

While most mainstream commentators view the
crisis that provoked the Great Recession as having
passed, these essays from Richard Wolff paint a far
less rosy picture. Drawing attention to the extreme
downturn in most of capitalism’s old centers, the unequal growth in its new centers, and
the resurgence of a global speculative bubble, Wolff—in his uniquely accessible style—
makes the case that the crisis should be grasped not as a passing moment but as an evolving stage in capitalism’s history.
Praise for Richard Wolff and Democracy at Work:
“Richard Wolff ’s constructive and innovative ideas suggest new and promising foundations for much more authentic democracy and sustainable and
equitable development, ideas that can be implemented directly and carried
forward. A very valuable contribution in troubled times.”
—Noam Chomsky
“Richard Wolff is the leading socialist economist in the country. This book is
required reading for anyone concerned about a fundamental transformation of
the ailing capitalist economy!”
—Cornel West
“Bold, thoughtful, transformative—a powerful and challenging vision that takes us
beyond both corporate capitalism and state socialism. Richard Wolff at his best!”
—Gar Alperovitz
Richard Wolff is professor of economics emeritus, University of Massachusetts,
Amherst, and a visiting professor at the New School in New York. His book
Democracy at Work: A Cure for Capitalism inspired the creation of a nonprofit organization dedicated to showing why and how to make democratic workplaces real.

Who Do You Serve,
Who Do You Protect?
Police Violence and Resistance
in the United States
Edited by Maya Schenwar, Joe Macaré,
and Alana Yu-lan Price
Foreword by Alicia Garza

What is the reality of policing in the United States? Do
the police keep anyone safe and secure other than the
very wealthy? How do recent police killings of young Black people in the United States fit into
the historical and global context of anti-Blackness? This collection of reports and essays (the
first collaboration between Truthout and Haymarket Books) explores police violence against
Black, brown, indigenous, and other marginalized communities, miscarriages of justice, and
failures of token accountability and reform measures. It also makes a compelling and provocative argument against calling the police.
Contributions cover a broad range of issues including law enforcement’s treatment of pregnant
people and those with mental illness and the impact of racist police violence on parenting, as
well as specific stories such as a Detroit police conspiracy to slap murder convictions on young
Black men using police informants and the failure of Chicago’s much-touted Independent Police Review Authority, the body supposedly responsible for investigating police misconduct.
Contributors include William C. Anderson, Candice Bernd, Aaron Cantú, Thandi Chimurenga, Ejeris Dixon, Adam Hudson, Victoria Law, Mike Ludwig, Sarah Macaraeg, and Roberto
Maya Schenwar is Truthout’s editor in chief and the author of Locked Down,
Locked Out: Why Prison Doesn’t Work and How We Can Do Better.
Joe Macaré is Truthout’s publisher.

Europe in Revolt!
Mapping the
New European Left
Edited by Catarina Príncipe
and Bhaskar Sunkara

The Great Recession had political consequences across
the world, but nowhere greater than in the periphery
of Europe. The debt crisis that began in 2008 helped
trigger severe austerity measures in Greece, Spain,
Ireland, and Portugal. These measures only worsened
economic conditions—in Greece alone, GDP fell by more than a quarter and youth unemployment rose to 50 percent.
In response, something happened that few outsiders expected: A massive wave of resistance erupted across the continent. With mainstream parties largely discredited by their
support of austerity measures, room opened for radicals to offer a left-wing alternative.
Europe in Revolt! examines the key parties and figures behind this insurgency, from across
the continent, with insider coverage of both the roots of the social crisis and the radicals
seeking to reverse it.
Catarina Príncipe is a social movement activist from Portugal. She is a member
of Bloco de Esquerda (Portugal) and Die Linke (Germany) and a contributing
editor at Jacobin magazine, for which she writes frequent dispatches on the European situation.

Bhaskar Sunkara is the founding editor and publisher of Jacobin magazine. He
is a regular contributor to the Nation and In These Times magazines.

Next Time They’ll Come to
Count the Dead
War and Survival in South Sudan
Nick Turse

Next Time They’ll Come to Count the Dead is modern
crisis reporting at its best. For six weeks in spring
2015, award-winning journalist Nick Turse traveled
around war-torn South Sudan talking to military officers and child soldiers, United Nations officials and
humanitarian workers, civil servants, civil society activists, and internally displaced people whose lives have been blown apart by a ceaseless
conflict there. Turse reveals the harsh reality of modern warfare in the developing world and
the ways people manage to survive the unimaginable. This book isn’t about combat, it’s about
the human condition, about ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances, about
death, life, and the crimes of war in the newest nation on earth.
Praise for Tomorrow’s Battlefield:
“Gripping and meticulous, Nick Turse’s reporting on Africa sheds much-needed
light on shadowy missions the US military would rather keep secret. His investigations of US military missions in Africa in Tomorrow’s Battlefield reveal a secret
war with grave implications for Africans and Americans, alike.”
—Glenn Greenwald
“Nick Turse’s investigative reporting has revealed a remarkable picture of evolving US military operations in Africa that have been concealed from view, but
have ominous portent, as he demonstrates vividly and in depth.”
—Noam Chomsky
Nick Turse is the managing editor of TomDispatch.com and a fellow at the Nation Institute. An award-winning investigative journalist and the author of Kill
Anything That Moves, he has reported from the Middle East, Southeast Asia,
and Africa and his pieces have appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles
Times, the Nation, and the Intercept.

A James Connolly Reader
James Connolly, edited by Shaun Harkin
Twenty-sixteen will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the
1916 Easter Rising in Ireland. James Connolly was executed by
a British Army firing squad for his participation in the rebellion.

society and its message had a global meaning in the midst of the
barbarism of World War I. Connolly’s actions and writing were inspired by a vision of an Ireland and world free from empire, war,
and exploitation.
James Connolly (1868–1916) was an Irish republican and socialist leader.

As Radical as Reality Itself
Marxism and Tradition
Neil Davidson
Praise for How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions?:
“I was frankly pole-axed by this magnificent book. Davidson resets the entire debate on the character of revolutions:
bourgeois, democratic, and socialist. He’s sending me, at
least, back to the library.”
—Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

In this book of essays Neil Davidson examines Marxism’s relationship to previously existing
traditions (the Enlightenment), as well as the precise boundaries of the Marxist tradition
itself. With characteristic clarity and insight, he argues that tradition should not be seen as
a set of eternally valid “lessons” but rather as a set of resources from which revolutionaries
can critically draw.

Historical Materialism Book Series

Editorial Board: Sébastien Budgen (Paris), Steve Edwards (London), Marcel van der Linden

Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical contributions—
in the form of original monographs, translated texts, and reprints of classics—as the basis

Studies in Critical Social Sciences
Editor: David Fasenfest

Modern capitalism began the twenty-first century seemingly victorious as the dominant
social and economic organizing principle in the world. Rampant regulation and deregulation accompanied a wholesale attack on the social, economic, and political gains of the
prior century under the guise of increasing competitiveness and the need to respond to
the forces of globalization.
The peer-reviewed Studies in Critical Social Sciences book series offers insights into
the current reality by exploring the content and consequence of power relationships under capitalism, by considering the spaces of opposition and resistance to these changes,
and by articulating capitalism with other systems of power and domination—for example race, gender, culture—that have been defining our new age.
Studies in Critical Social Sciences includes the subseries Studies in Critical Research
on Religion and Critical Global Studies.
