“Seven Stories publishes books that present the factual reality of power relations in America, remedy the exclusion of African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans from our history by publishing our visions, and stimulate intellectually for a new world view of equanimity and equality.” —Jose Manuel Havarro, La Salle University “Students need the kind of critical thinking and plain truth written by authors like Noam Chomsky and the many other writers of Seven Stories Press books. . . . Most traditional textbooks are out of touch and, as someone who tries to present all relevant analyses of major global political topics, I especially appreciate the broad selection published by Seven Stories. Thanks to nontraditional publishing houses we can find ‘alternative’ analyses to help prepare students for the world as it really is.” —Eloise Linger, Ph.D., SUNY College at Old Westbury “I’ve found that books from Seven Stories Press have been vital to me, as a historian and teacher. Authors like Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, and Pratap Chatterjee provide students with information and interpretations they won’t easily find elsewhere, and novels like The Man with the Golden Arm remain as important today as when they were published. If you want to learn, look at a Seven Stories catalog.” —Bob Buzzanco, University of Houston, Downtown “As a professor dedicated to the values of liberal arts education, it is increasingly difficult to find honest publishers, in a mega corporate dominated industry, willing to publish critical, alternative perspectives to the totalizing ideological agenda of the global market economy. . . . I find solace in the integrity of publishers like Seven Stories, who are committed to social justice, alternative voices, and the pursuit of human enlightenment.” —Mark Seis, Fort Lewis College “I just love the work you guys have been doing for many years. You are a professor’s dream, publishing works that many publishers would be too conservative to consider, on timely topics, classics that are/have been neglected, and in paperback. . . . I started using your publications for classes when they were in little booklets. All have been tremendous. Thanks for keeping on getting writers and ideas out there that might otherwise be sidelined.” — Stephanie Shanks-Meile, Indiana University Northwest

derrick JenSen: AgAinSt civiliz Ation
One of the Utne Reader’s 50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World, Derrick Jensen—activist, teacher, philosopher, poet—is a leading voice in the fight to save the planet from the destruction and unsustainable waste that are part and parcel of industrial civilization.

W H AT W E L E Av E B E H I n d Derrick Jensen and Aric McBay

Jensen and McBay remind us that life—human and nonhuman—will not go on unless we do everything we can to facilitate the most basic process on earth, the root of sustainability: one being’s waste must always become another being’s food. “This is a fierce book…Its basic premise—that we’re in worse trouble than we understand, and that a little change around the edges won’t help— is precisely the message that needs to get out.” —Bill McKibben PAPER 978-1-58322-867-8 $24.95 480 PAgEs

The Problem of Civilization
Endgame, Volume 1 builds on a series of simple but increasingly provocative premises: for example, “The needs of the natural world are more important than the needs of any economic system” and “Love does not imply pacifism.” A brilliant weaving together of piercing analysis and elegant prose, Endgame leads us to see that we can re-imagine our world. “[Endgame is] remarkable in its consideration of the present system of exploitation, destruction of the natural world, and, indeed, self-destruction. . . . Jensen raises vital questions that must be asked, and moreover, that must be answered. In this mad venture, we are all complicit, if only in our silence. Jensen shatters this silence.” —Mumia Abu-Jamal “Jensen has proven himself a formidable thinker unafraid of showing us, with unsettling precision, the countless ways we are allowing ourselves and our planet to be killed.” —The San Francisco Chronicle PAPER 978-1-58322-730-5 $20.95 512 PAgEs

A challenge to the “destructive nihilism” of writers like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris who believe that there is no reality outside what can be measured using the tools of science, Dreams draws on the ideas and writings of Native American thinkers, the beliefs of radical sociologists, and Jensen’s own experiences tending the woods near his home to provide evidence of alternative ways of understanding reality.

The second volume of Endgame illustrates our means of resistance, leap-frogging the environmental movement’s deadlock over our willingness to change our conduct and focusing instead on our ability to adapt to the impending ecological revolution. “Derrick Jensen is a force for the common good.

A Graphic Novel Life of Fidel Castro

“With compelling, accessible prose, Murillo surveys a long history of conflict that predates drugs, guerrillas, or terrorism. Rather, Murillo roots Colombia’s violent history in a refusal of elites to open up the political system to broad, democratic participation. Murillo encourages readers to look past a history of violence to find hope in social movements to persistent problems of poverty and social exclusion.” —Marc Becker, Truman State University “Murillo’s insightful treatment of the conflict in Colombia is concise and extremely relevant for anyone wishing to understand the negative impact of contemporary US policy in Latin America.” —Andrew G.

Translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith
Taibo dissects the events surrounding the night of October 2, 1968, when at least 200 students were killed in a bloody showdown between demonstrators and the Mexican government in Tlatelolco Square. “I introduced Paco Taibo’s ’68 in my Global 1960s course last year, supplementing other texts on late60s Mexico. I found it gave students a profound sense of the experience of activism, and of the difficulties involved in its memorialization. Rather than incorporating the events into a passive narrative of trauma and its victims, Taibo II restores the lived possibilities of the incredible 100 or so days prior to the massacre: the risks, the excitement, the sensed potential for real transformations. Highly recommended.” —William Marotti, University of California, Los Angeles English PAPER 978-1-58322-608-7 $12.95 144 PAgEs spanish PAPER 978-1-58322-600-1 $12.95 144 PAgEs

In 1996, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Gary Webb published a shocking series of articles in the San Jose Mercury News, exposing the CIA’s link to Nicaraguan cocaine smuggled into the US by the Contras. Webb’s bold, controversial reporting was the target of a famously vicious media backlash that ended his career as a mainstream journalist. Webb’s findings were later confirmed and Webb himself vindicated by the investigation of the CIA’s inspector general and the US Senate. His death in 2004, at the age of 49, was ruled to be a suicide.

g A r y w e B B: i n v e S t i g At i v e JournAliSt

Edited by Noelle Hanrahan
“Imprisoned journalist Abu-Jamal presents in a series of essays a devastating social critique of contemporary institutions, such as the criminal justice system, and provides an insightful analysis of the state of civil liberties, immigration rights, and racism in the US. His essays on death row . . . have a chilling effect on students’ advocacy for the death penalty. What students always find surprising is Abu-Jamal’s intelligence, his powerful diction, and ability to empathize with others. For teachers, this book is an effective tool to explain the concept of systemic injustice, which MOVE members dared to challenge and whose efforts Abu-Jamal commemorates.” —Mechthild Nagel, SUNY Cortland


“Scholar and activist Angela Davis gives compelling reasons to rethink the carceral institution and jolts students of criminology who take prisons for granted. Focusing on the US prison industrial complex and its racist, capitalist historical roots, Davis also presents challenging views on prison abolition which make for great classroom discussion. Her analysis is clearly written and engages well students at the undergraduate level.” —Mechthild Nagel, SUNY Cortland

The Question of Lawyers’ Responsibility in Torture Cases

Wojciech Jagielski

Translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones
On an average night in northern Uganda, tens of thousands of children head for the city centers to avoid capture and recruitment by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), finding refuge on the floors of aid agencies or in the streets. Jagielski shows Uganda through the eyes of these children who, even after they have escaped the LRA, carry the weight of their own acts of murder on their young shoulders.

In three uncompromising essays, Iraqi dissident Haifa Zangana, former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, and professor of sociology Thomas Ehrlich Reifer teach us how physically and psychologically insidious torture is, how deep a mark it leaves on both its victims and its practitioners, and how necessary it is for us as a society to hold torturers accountable.

The Tragedy of Agent Orange
Second Edition “I died in Vietnam, but I didn’t even know it,” said a young Vietnam vet on the Today Show one morning in 1978, shocking viewers across the country. Waiting for an Army to Die: The Tragedy of Agent Orange—the first book ever written on the effects of Agent Orange, now updated and with a new introduction—tells this young vet’s story and that of hundreds of thousands of other former American servicemen.

In her major address to the 99th annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Roy clarifies the political and human stakes of “regime change” and reaffirms the role of popular activism. “Reading Arundhati Roy is how the peace movement arms itself.

Weaving first-person accounts with original research, Vietnam War scholar Fred A. Wilcox examines the long-term consequences for future generations of Vietnamese of the United States’s use of Agent Orange against their country, and calling for the United States government to finally admit its role in chemical warfare in Vietnam. “To our everlasting shame, current controversy over the Vietnam War focuses on the question ‘Could we have won?’ The real question should be ‘What have we done?’ Focusing on one central element, chemical warfare, Wilcox’s harrowing study spells out the record with shattering clarity, relying on personal testimony, visual imagery, and cold fact. No decent person can fail to be appalled, or to be inspired to do we can to help the victims: the suffering people and the ravaged land.” —Noam Chomsky

This new edition of 9-11, published on the tenth anniversary of the attacks and featuring a new essay by Chomsky, reminds us that today, just as much as ten years ago, information and clarity remain our most valuable resources in the struggle to prevent future violence against the innocent, both at home and abroad. “[9-11] offers an informed alternative perspective on the historical reasons behind the 9-11 attacks. . . . [Students] seem to have found it enlightening, if disturbing.” —E. Taylor Atkins, Northern Illinois University “Chomsky’s book was very timely and it exposed the students to facts and ideas that they were unlikely to encounter from the mainstream media or from more conventional texts.” —Alexander Simon, Utah Valley State College

Former federal prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega charges George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, and Colin Powell with conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Four generations of Americans have followed citizen advocate Ralph Nader’s lead on civic and political issues that have affected their lives. From fighting for car safety in the 1960s, to opposing the policies of the World Trade Organization, to running for president, Nader continues to be a relentless force for grassroots activism and democratic change.

“Ralph Nader is our indispensable voice of outrage against corporate corruption, invasion of privacy, and abuse of power.”
“O n Ly T H E S u P E R - R I C H C A n S Av E u S !”
What if a cadre of super-rich individuals tried to become a driving force to organize the citizens of this troubled nation? What if some of America’s most powerful individuals decided it was time to fix our government and return the power to the people? What could happen? In this first novel, a return to the American tradition of utopian fiction, Ralph Nader imagines the answer to the question. “How many leftist books leave you feeling hopeful, even optimistic? How many offer you a picture of a new world that inspires you to act? . . . A genuine creative leap in genre and substance.” —Charles Derber, Tikkun “I congratulate Ralph Nader for his outstanding and timely book. Most of my students are cynical regarding political parties. The idea that a new national political party could be created and it could play a central role in reforming our national government was new and exciting. Based on my success with Ralph’s book last year, I plan to use it as a basic text to two new courses designed to explain how we can reform our national, state, and local governments.” —Clyde D.

Connecting the Dots between Environmental Toxins and Rising Autism Rates

Britta Belli

In this first book to address the compelling evidence that it is the pairing of environmental exposures with genetic susceptibilities that may be impacting the brain development of children, journalist Brita Belli brings us into the lives of three families with autistic children, each with different ideas about autism, as she interprets for readers compelling evidence that environmental toxins—including common exposures from chemicals mounting in our everyday lives—may be sparking this disorder in vulnerable children.

Based on personal journals from his years as a rehabilitation counselor, Paranoia & Heartbreak tells Gold’s personal story of coming to terms with people who have crossed over to the other side of their own humanity. “[Gold] doesn’t judge these wards of the state, he understands them, he takes their voiceless lives and makes them palpable.” —Jimmy Santiago Baca PAPER 978-1-58322-877-7 $19.95 352 PAgEs

On the Arts and Sciences of Human Inequality
This monumental work of popular history exposes the pivotal developments that have made stereotypes a persistent, common language and reveals how stereotypes have served as the groundwork for power in the modern world. “A plain-terms, no-holds-barred look at the long-running practice of science warped to serve prejudice. . . .An absolute ‘must-have’ for sociology shelves, enthusiastically recommended for public and college libraries alike.” —Midwest Book Review “I love Typecasting; my students love it. There’s something in it for everyone: history of science, art, and film, issues of race, European history, etc. . . . I would promote it in courses about race that want to go beyond “race” being equated with black and white. I encourage students to hold on to the book and use it as a reference for other courses. —Dr. Elliot A Ratzman, Assistant Professor, Religion, Temple University PAPER 978-158322-776-3 $23.95 544 PAgEs, 100 B&W Photos

One of America’s most astute and engaging political analysts shows us that culture is a changing process and the product of dynamic interplay between a wide range of social and political interests. “Michael Parenti has educated generations of Americans—including my own—on the merits of a radical world view and progressive politics. In The Culture Struggle, Parenti is at the top of his game. His arguments about the importance of culture and his debunking of dominant ideology is masterful and written with precise and crystal clear prose that few other writers can approach, let along equal.” —Robert W.

Luis J. Rodríguez

Some time ago I went to the library, which is called the Quimper Public Library. The librarian . . . scowled meaningfully on seeing me in my peasant smock and hat enter the sanctum sanctorum where he reigns like a god. When I told him I wanted to consult a certain work on astronomy by Flammarion, he burst into Jupiterian laughter, and with no further response than that sidesplitting guffaw, he shoved me toward a dim recess saying, Here, look, there are some good novels here, pick one; that will do you nicely. There was indeed a pile of old discarded books. I picked one up at random . . . I was brave enough to return several times but, met by those same scowls and rejections, and seeing clearly that the presence of a peasant was shaming for such a place, especially for the grand personages who frequented it and for the autocrat who reigned there, I was obliged to give up. But that episode showed me once again in what esteem the lower class is held by all those bourgeois, grown rich on the sweat of that population, and by all those charlatan priests who suck its blood from the cradle to the grave. — from memoirs of a breton peasant
