Last Chance for our Monthly Review Sale!

Posted on June 29th, 2010 in AK Distribution

As some of you are hopefully aware, we have just started a “Publisher Of The Month” special through AK Press Distro. The idea is that each month we feature one of the independent publishers who we distribute, and we mark down all their titles to 25% off for the entire month. That way we have […]

David Graeber on Interviewed on CBC

Posted on June 29th, 2010 in AK Authors!

When the Canadian Broadcasting Company needed a go-to anarchist to help make sense of the (then) upcoming G20 Summit protests, they interviewed AK author, and all-around nice guy, David Graeber. David does a nice job of injecting some balance into the mainstream media … balance that pretty much disappeared once the Summit began. David has […]

The USS AK Press Has Docked!

Posted on June 25th, 2010 in Happenings

This is probably going to be the least coherent blog post you’ll ever read here. That’s because Kate, Jessica, John, and I have been tabling twelve-hour days since Tuesday. It’s been exhausting (hence our failure to blog yesterday) but it’s also been completely worthwhile and we’re still having a great time selling books, talking to […]

USSF: The Journey Continues!

Posted on June 23rd, 2010 in AK Authors!, Happenings

Hi folks! As I type this, Suzanne and I are sitting here inside of Cobo Hall at the US Social Forum at the AK table, and trying to blog in-between customers, visits from AK authors, and other assorted friends who have been dropping by. In case you were wondering, the Social Forum is intense! There […]

Chris Carlsson on Hern, Hardt, and Negri

Posted on June 23rd, 2010 in AK Authors!

Just thought I’d bring attention to a piece Chris Carlsson recently wrote on his blog comparing the work of Hardt and Negri (in particular their new book Commonwealth) with that of Matt Hern (author of Common Ground in a Liquid City). Chris’s insights into urban politics, ecology, and working class constituency make him the perfect […]

Distro Top Ten — June 2010

Posted on June 21st, 2010 in AK Distribution

Abolish Restaurants: A Worker’s Critique of the Food Service Industry (Prole) A beautifully illustrated pamphlet illustrating the daily misery, stress, boredom, and alienation of restaurant work, and all the ways that restaurant workers fight against it. Drawing on a range of anti-capitalist ideas as well as a heaping plate of personal experience, it is part […]

Irish Anarchist Review Issue 1

Posted on June 18th, 2010 in AK Allies, Anarchist Publishers

The folks from the Workers Solidarity Movement in Ireland recently announced the publication of the first issue of The Irish Anarchist Review. It looks pretty damn good…and of interest to folks outside Ireland. Here’s what they have to say (and there’s a link to a pretty PDF of the issue, as well as audio from […]
