Ashley’s Adieu…

Posted on July 30th, 2010 in About AK

Today is my last day working at AK Press. After spending the last several years answering the phone (“hello, AK Press”), learning all the best book-packing strategies so customers are impressed at how not-damaged everything is when it arrives (please tell me you are impressed!), tabling all kinds of events around North America, and, yes, […]

Chomsky’s Advice for Anarchists

Posted on July 28th, 2010 in AK Authors!

This video has been around since March, so I suspect I might be one of the few people who hadn’t seen it until now. In case there are any more of you out there, take a look. It’s Noam Chomsky answering questions from reddit.com readers (and asking them one of his own at the end). […]

Like many of you, I’m sure, I spend a lot of time trolling the internet for interesting bits of anarchist and radical history. I’m probably happiest in this obsessive endeavor when I come across archives that house entire (or nearly entire) runs of a single periodical. There are a bunch of them out there…probably a […]
