A message from our friends...
“I want to encourage you to support Haymarket Books, because we need a free press, and the press is only free when the people own a press, and that’s what Haymarket Books is: a press owned by the people.” óJeremy Scahill
“In the desert of corporate publishing, Haymarket Books is a verdant and lush intellectual oasis. The titles and subjects cascade like a waterfall and inspire and energize!” óDavid Barsamian
“At a time when mainstream publishers detected no value in disseminating the truth about the US war on Iraq, Haymarket Books remained committed to principle over profit, offering its readership a welcome respite from the criminal complicity of corporate media, publishing, and the state.” óDahr Jamail
“I’m so proud to be a part of the Haymarket family.”
óAmy Goodman óChina Mieville ´
“With speed, panache, élan, and rigor, Haymarket Books has made itself an indispensible resource to the thinking radical. Here’s to another ten years.”
“Congratulations on a decade of inspiring achievement. We all know that the country desperately needs a revived, organized, active, and engaged left, to reverse today’s extremely dangerous course, and soon. Haymarket has its work cut out for it. And, fortunately, it has created a solid basis for helping to lead the way towards a more hopeful future.” óNoam Chomsky
“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.” óFrances Fox Piven

ìHoward Zinnóthere was no one like him. And to hear him speak was like listening to music that you lovedólyrical, uplifting, honest.î —Michael Moore
Howard Zinn was one of the great orators of the twentieth century and illuminated our history like no other historian. He rarely spoke from notes, and yet could weave rich historical narratives that inspired and captivated audiences. He could grab the attention of even the most jaded students and charm listeners with his sharp humor and personal, engaging style. Yet many of his speeches have never been published in book form. is ﬁrst-ever collection of his speeches—on a range of vital topics—will be an invaluable resource for new generations to continue to discover his work, as well as the millions he moved and informed in his lifetime.
Howard Zinn wrote the classic A People’s History of the United States. The book, which has sold more than two million copies,
has been featured on The Sopranos and The Simpsons and in the film Good Will Hunting and has appeared multiple times on the New York Times Bestseller List.
Anthony Arnove wrote, directed, and produced The People Speak with Howard Zinn, Chris Moore, Josh Brolin, and Matt
Damon and co-edited, with Howard Zinn, the book Voices of a People’s History of the United States.

ìYou can learn more of the truth about Washington and the world from one week of Amy Goodmanís Democracy Now! than from a month of Sunday morning talk shows. Make that a year of Sunday talk shows. Thatís because Amy, as you will discover on every page of this book, knows that the critical question for journalists is how close they are to the truth, not how close they are to power.î —Bill Moyers
ìAmy Goodman is not afraid to speak truth to power. She does it every day.î —Susan Sarandon
Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, “Breaking the Sound Barrier,” for King Features Syndicate in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller of the same name gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent. Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate reporting to dig deep into the politics of “climate apartheid,” the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent “from Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza.” Throughout, Goodman and Moynihan show the work of ordinary people to change their media—and change the world.

Black Housing in the 1960s Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

When Martin Luther King Jr., directed his campaign for civil rights and social justice to the North, he came to Chicago. The fight against slum conditions, poor housing, and residential segregation was at the center of the Chicago Freedom Movement’s agenda. That racial discrimination and segregation persisted in Chicago long after King’s foray into Chicago politics has led historians to summarily assess the Chicago Freedom Movement as a failure. But in doing so, the movement for fairness and good housing in Chicago is reduced to the brief period in which King was involved. Such a narrow focus misses the way in which Black Chicago became a hotbed of tenant and homeowner organizing in the late 1960s, long after King had left the city. Some of this activity could be linked to organizations that were created as a result of the Chicago Freedom Movement, but others like the Contract Buyers League (CBL) arose in response to the economically predatory relationships born as a result of redlining and the economic exclusion of African Americans from conventional sources of home lending capital. The CBL formed to protest Black homeowners’ exclusion from the use of traditional mortgages to buy homes. Moreover, the focus on concepts like “Black Power” and “community control,” among others, were the context within which Black tenant organizing across Chicago developed—not for “fair housing” in white suburban communities, but for equal housing in Black urban spaces. Finally, these movements for equality in housing in Black communities demonstrated the way in which racism, redlining, and urban exploitation were not just expressions of prejudice or generic antiblack attitudes; rather, they were demonstrations of a “political economy of residential segregation” in which African Amerians were often expected to pay significantly more for inferior housing.

Taylor has been awarded the prestigious Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship and will also be a Northwestern University Presidential Fellow. She is active in local housing struggles in Chicago and is an organizer with Communities United Against Foreclosure and Eviction.

ìThe Attican events, described with primitive energy and workday language . . . will surely appease the hunger of tens of thousands of us for an honest insiderís account of what led to such a ferocious attack on virtually unarmed prisoners. . . . It is a heartbroken rather than angry book. It is a superb documentary which would hold up in court.î —Kurt Vonnegut, New York Times Book Review In 1971, the inmates of Attica revolted, took hostages, and forced the authorities into four days of desperate negotiation. The rebels demanded—and were granted—the presence of a group of observers to act as unofficial mediators. Tom Wicker, then the associate editor of the New York Times, was one of those summoned.

Aaron Dixon does an absolutely superb job of presenting life in the Party from the perspective of a foot soldieróa warrior for the cause of revolutionary change and Black Power in America.

ìLance Selfa has written one book that should be mandatory reading for everyone concerned with politics in the United States.

Occupying Wall Street
Writers for the 99%
ìThere are many books about #OWS but none has the pedigree of Occupying Wall Street. Created by more than 60 people from the movement, it runs through its beginnings, and provides a fascinating look at how Zucotti Park functioned, the disagreements and difficulties in running the community, and contains first-hand accounts of some of its most dramatic moments. Part souvenir, part how-to guide, this is a remarkable and unique book.î —Huffington Post
For two months this fall, Zuccotti Park was the site of an extraordinary political action. Home to hundreds of protestors, the park became a communion of sharing and consensus in the heart of a citadel defined by greed and oligarchy. In the early hours of Tuesday, November 15th, the occupiers’ camp was destroyed when police swept suddenly into the square, tearing down the tents, library, kitchen, and medical center and arresting hundreds. But if the occupation at Zuccotti was destroyed that night, the movement it spawned across America has only just begun. Issues of equality and democracy, absent from mainstream political discussion in the United States for decades, are today springing up everywhere. Occupying Wall Street draws on extensive interviews with those who took part in the action to bring an authentic, inside-the-square history to life. In a vivid, fast-paced narrative, Writers for the 99% detail the key events of the occupation. Woven throughout are stories of daily life in the square, focusing on how the kitchen, library, media center, clean-up, hospital, and decision-making at the General Assembly functioned, all in the words of the people who were there.

It very effectively arms us with the necessary arguments and ideas to set about this business of ending womenís oppression.î —Socialist Democracy ìA veteran worker-intellectual brilliantly addresses the crisis of the labor movement, skewering those who believe that renewal can come from the top down, and encouraging those who are fighting to rebuild it from the bottom up.î —Mike Davis, author, Prisoners of the American Dream and City of Quartz

The struggle for gender equality continues more than thirty years after the height of the women’s liberation movement, yet women remain secondclass citizens. Feminism has shifted steadily rightward since the 1960s. This updated collection of essays examines women’s oppression from a Marxist perspective that is badly needed today. Locating the source of women’s oppression in class society, Smith argues that only a movement that integrates the fight for women’s liberation with a struggle against a system that puts profit above human needs can end women’s oppression—along with all other forms of inequality.
Sharon Smith is the author of Subterranean Fire, also published by Haymarket Books, as well as many articles on women’s
liberation and the US working class. Her writings appear regularly at SocialistWorker.org and in International Socialist Review.

A Cure for Capitalism Richard D. Wolff
ìBold, thoughtful, transformativeóa powerful and challenging vision of that takes us beyond both corporate capitalism and state socialism. Richard Wolff at his best!î —Gar Alperovitz, author of America Beyond Capitalism
ISBN: 978-1-60846-247-6 $17.00 Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60846-257-5 Ebook November 2012 ï World
ìIdeas of economic democracy are very much in the air, as they should be, with increasing urgency in the midst of today's serious crises. 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.î —Noam Chomsky
A new historical vista is opening before us in this time of change, Wolff writes, in this compelling new manifesto for a democratic alternative based on workers directing their own workplaces. Capitalism as a system has spawned a deepening economic crisis alongside its bought-and-paid for political establishment. Neither serves the needs of our society. Whether it is secure, well-paid, and meaningful jobs or a sustainable relationship with the natural environment we depend on, our society is not delivering the results people need and deserve. One key cause for this intolerable state of affairs is the lack of genuine democracy in our economy as well as in our politics. The solution requires the institution of genuine economic democracy, starting with workers directing their own workplaces, as the basis for a genuine political democracy. Here Wolff lays out a hopeful and clear vision of how to make that possible, addressing the many people who have concluded that economic inequality and politics as usual can no longer be tolerated and are looking for a concrete program of action.
Richard D. Wolff is an emeritus professor of economics at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is currently a Visiting Professor at New School University in New York. Wolff is the author of many books, including Capitalism Hits the Fan: The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It. He hosts the weekly hour-long radio program Economic Update on WBAI (Pacifica Radio) and writes regularly for the Guardian, Truthout.org, and MRZine.

In response to the events of 9/11, the Bush administration launched a “War on Terror,” ushering in an era of intensified anti-Muslim racism—Islamophobia. However, 9/11 did not create Islamophobia, an ideology that has become the handmaiden of imperialism; its roots lie much deeper. Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire is an authoritative examination of the historic relationship between Islamophobia and the agenda of empire-building.

As the fledgling workers’ state was gripped by a civil war, the revolution’s leaders remained steadfast in their commitment to spreading their successes across all of Europe. From the treaty of Brest-Litovsk to the growing dangers posed by Stalin’s bureaucracy, this third and final volume of Tony Cliff ’s political biography of Lenin focuses on the challenges faced during the final years of the Russian revolutionary’s life.

ISBN: 978-1-60846-198-1 ï $28 Paperback March 2012 Short-listed for the 2011 Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize
e essays collected here straddle four decades of work in both historiography and Marxist theory, combining source-based historical work in a wide range of languages with sophisticated discussions of Marx’s notion of “modes of production.” From the emergence of medieval relations of production, the origins of capitalism, the dichotomy between free and unfree labor, and essays in agrarian history that range widely from Byzantine Egypt to nineteenth-century colonialism, the essays demonstrate the importance of reintegrating theory with history and of bringing history back into historical materialism.
Monsters of the Market
Zombies, Vampires and Global Capitalism
ISBN: 978-1-60846-233-9 ï $28 Paperback ï July 2012
Unable to analyze the dynamics of speciﬁc forms of social labor in the antebellum United States, most historians of the US Civil War have ignored its deep social roots. To search out these roots, Post applies theoretical insights from the transition debates to the historical literature on the United States to produce a new analysis of the origins of American capitalism.
Everywhere the market goes, it spawns monsters in its wake. From Frankenstein to zombies, McNally analyzes these and other creatures of capitalism. Drawing on folklore, literature, and popular culture, this book links tales of monstrosity from England to recent vampire and zombie fables from sub-Saharan Africa, and connects these to Marx’s persistent use of monster metaphors in his descriptions of capitalism. Reading across these tales of the grotesque, McNally oﬀers a novel account of the cultural economy of the global market system.

As the process of globalization has unleashed a new political economy of knowledge, researchers, scholars, and institutions must grapple with the social and materialistic contexts informing these transformations. is is necessary because the process of globalization has not only created new challenges for society but also forces various institutions to reaﬃrm their identity and place.

About Haymarket Books
awareness of the injustices that exist in society and the many efforts at the grass roots to right these wrongs. The Center’s projects include the book publisher Haymarket Books, the bimonthly magazine International Socialist Review, the audio and video archive wearemany.org, and numerous educational events and conferences.
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.” We take inspiration and courage from our namesakes, the Haymarket Martyrs, who gave their lives fighting for a better world. Their 1886 struggle for the eight-hour day, which gave us May Day, the international workers’ holiday, reminds workers around the world that ordinary people can organize and struggle for their own liberation. These struggles continue today across the globe—struggles against oppression, exploitation, hunger, and poverty.

“To survive, democracy needs a truly radical, truly independent press more than ever before. We need to create a culture in this country in which reading and resistance go hand-in-hand. That’s why I’m a proud supporter of Haymarket Books, which has inherited the critical, fighting spirit of its namesakes. I encourage readers to purchase directly from haymarketbooks.org. By doing so, you’ll help support the vital role independent publishing plays in making sure democracy not only survives, but flourishes.” óHoward Zinn
“Haymarket is Woody Guthrie’s guitar, a red lighthouse, and the promise of May. Mazel tov.” óMike Davis
“Haymarket is thriving in this tumultuous time because it publishes books that no conglomerate would touch. Haymarket, blissfully free of the preoccupation with profit, has a higher calling: to publish books that build movements.” óAvi Lewis and Naomi Klein
“I am honored to be published by Haymarket Books. Haymarket Zindabad!” óArundhati Roy
