  2. The CNT in the Spanish Revolution Volume 1

    The CNT in the Spanish Revolution Volume 1

    $28.00

    The CNT in the Spanish Revolution is the history of one of the most original and audacious, and arguably also the most far-reaching, of all the twentieth-century revolutions. It is the history of the giddy years of political change and hope in 1930s Spain, when the so-called ‘Generation of ’36’, Peirats’ own generation, rose up against the oppressive structures of Spanish society. It is also a history of a revolution that failed, crushed in the jaws of its enemies on both the reformist left and the reactionary right. Learn More
  3. The Politics of Immigrant Workers: Labor Activism and Migration in the World Economy Since 1830

    The Politics of Immigrant Workers: Labor Activism and Migration in the World Economy Since 1830

    $10.00

    Immigrant workers are as crucial to the world and national economies as they are socially and politically controversial. This provocative book explores the rise of the global working class in the 19th & 20th centuries by examining the experiences of a wide range of immigrant workers in the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. Are immigrant workers more conservative or radical than native-born workers? Under what circumstances do workers act together and when do they fail to co-operate? These are just two of the questions addressed in this important collection of essays. Learn More
  4. The Port Huron Statement

    The Port Huron Statement

    $13.00

    The Visionary Call of the 1960s Revolution

    by Tom Hayden

    Four key periods in American history have most influenced what America is like today: the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War II, and the 1960s. No document better frames and explains the 1960s than The Port Huron Statement.

    The statement was a generational call for direct participatory democracy in which Americans would have greater say over the decisions affecting their lives. It called for the extension of democratic principles to the workplace as well as the electoral arena. It opposed the dominance of the military-industrial complex with the hope that social movements could reform the Democrats as a party of progressive opposition. In its vision, greater democracy would lessen individuals' alienation. The manifesto’s 1962 publication preceded the phenomena of the counter-culture, hippies and back-to-the-land.

    Tom Hayden, who drafted the Port Huron Statement in 1962 when he was 21 years old, was among the founders of Students for a Democratic Society, a Freedom Rider in the segregated South, a community organizer in the slums of New Jersey, an opponent of the Vietnam War who was indicted by Richard Nixon, and eventually served in the California Legislature for 18 years.

  6. The Radical Novel in the United States, 1900-1954: Some Interrelations of Literature and Society

    The Radical Novel in the United States, 1900-1954: Some Interrelations of Literature and Society

    $5.00

    This study examines the relationship between society and literature and shows how the proletarian novel, a literary phenomenon of the 1930s, was a reflection of current interest in revolutionary Marxism. Also discussed are the reasons why literary critics of the following decades dismissed these writings as bizarre and improbable and questioned how the writers could have so badly miscalculated the future.

  7. The Rise & Fall of the Dil Pickle Club

    The Rise & Fall of the Dil Pickle Club

    $15.00

    What do Lucy Parsons, Clarence Darrow, Carl Sandburg, Mary MacLane, Lawrence Lipton, Elizabeth Davis (Queen of the Hoboes), Jun Fujita, Sherwood Anderson, Ralph Chaplin, Katherine Dunham, Djuna Barnes, Kenneth Rexroth, Sam Dolgoff, and Slim Brundage have in common? They were all Dil Picklers! Founded in 1914 by former Wobbly Jack Jones, Irish revolutionist Jim Larkin, and a group of fantastic IWW-oriented Bughouse Square hobos and soapboxers, the Dil Pickle Club, in just a few years, was widely recognized as the wildest, most playful, most creative, and most radical nightspot in the known universe—especially after Dr. Ben Reitman joined the club in 1917. In this book, Franklin Rosemont has collected forty-one reminiscences of the Dil Pickle by poets, artists, journalists, novelists, hobos, scholars, anarchist, wobblies, and other assorted radicals and oddballs. This brand new edition (for 2013) includes an introduction by Paul Durica. Learn More
