About Haymarket Books

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.
Haymarket has always led with the notion that ideas sell books, not gimmicks,
empty platitudes, or mainstream marketing hooks. Bringing grassroots organizing to ground-up publishing, its inimitable staff carries the passion and creativity required to set its authors words in motion. In an era of right-wing racism
and neoliberal conformity, Haymarket is a critical platform promoting ideas for
mass mobilization and community action.
Remi Kanazi, poet and Haymarket author
Haymarkets books are vital: they provoke the mindset shifts necessary to fuel
challenges to dominant systems. Im so grateful that Haymarket exists, because
I think that without it, a lot of really crucial books just wouldnt be published. In
general, publishers dont like to take risks. Haymarket, on the other hand, realizes that taking risks is at the core of doing transformative work. Congratulations
on your fifteenth anniversary! The world is a better place with you all in it.

Night Thoughts
Wallace Shawn

In this challenging manifesto, Wallace Shawn broods

about questions of justice, inequality, blame, revenge, and moralityand the possibility that a better
world could be created. I do believe its possible
barely possible obviously, he writes, that the mistake of civilization might ultimately be fixed using
civilizations own discoveries and fruits . . . and that a
human society could be created in which no one was
subjugated and everyone was treated with respect
because we all actually respected each other. Each of
us probably has his own picture of what such a society would look like. In my picture we all
would work part of each month in the sewers and for part of each month wed lounge on
pillows writing poetry on perfumed paper of many different colors.
Praise for Essays:
Lovely, hilarious, and seriously thought-provoking.

Toni Morrison

Full of what you might call conversation starters: tricky propositions about
morality, politics, and art as a force for change (or not). . . . Its a treat to hear
[Shawn] speak his curious mind.

The Doctor
and the Saint
Caste, Race, and Annihilation
of Caste, the Debate Between
B. R. Ambedkar and M. K. Gandhi
Arundhati Roy

Democracy hasnt eradicated caste, writes Arundhati Roy. It has entrenched and modernized it. Roy
insists we must examine the influence of Gandhi in
shaping what India ultimately became: independent of British rule, globally powerful, and marked to this day by the caste system.
For more than half a centurythroughout his adult life[Gandhis] pronouncements on
the inherent qualities of black Africans, untouchables, and the laboring classes remained
consistently insulting, she writes. His refusal to allow working-class people and untouchables to create their own political organizations and elect their own representatives remained consistent too.
In The Doctor and the Saint, Roy reveals some uncomfortable, even controversial, truths
about the political thought and career of Indias most revered figure. By exploring his debates with the Dalit leader B. R. Ambedkar, author of Annihilation of Caste, Roy makes clear
that what millions of Indians need is not merely formal democracy but liberation from the
oppression, shame, and poverty imposed on them by Indias archaic caste system.
Praise for Arundhati Roy:
Arundhati Roy is incandescent in her brilliance and her fearlessness.

Assata Taught Me
State Violence, Mass Incarceration,
and the Movement for Black Lives
Donna Murch

Black Panther and Cuban exile Assata Shakur has inspired multiple generations of radical protest, including the contemporary Black Lives Matter movement.
Bringing this radical history of Black protest to bear
on the current moment, these thought-provoking essays by award-winning scholar Donna Murch explore
how social protest is challenging systems of state violence and mass incarceration.
Murch exposes the devastating consequences of campaigns targeting gangs, drugs, and
crime on poor and working-class populations of color. Through largely hidden channels,
these punitive campaigns, Murch says, generate enormous revenues for the state. Under
such difficult conditions, organized resistance to the advancing tide of state violence and
incarceration has proved challenging.
This timely book shows how a youth-led political movement has emerged since the killing
of Trayvon Martin that challenges the bipartisan consensus on punishment and looks to
the future through a redistributive, queer, and feminist lens. Murch frames the Black Lives
Matter movement in relation to earlier struggles for Black liberation while excavating the
origins of mass incarceration and the political economy that drives it.
Assata Taught Me offers a fresh and much-needed historical perspective on the fifty years
since the founding of the Black Panther Party, during which the worlds largest police state
has emerged.
DONNA MURCH is an associate professor of history at Rutgers, the State
University of New Jersey. She is the author of Living for the City: Migration,
Education, and the Rise of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, California.

A Beautiful Ghetto

Devin Allen, Foreword by D. Watkins

On April 18, 2015, Baltimore erupted into mass
protests in response to the brutal murder of Freddie
Gray by the citys police. Suddenly, the eyes of the
world turned to the uprising. In nearly one hundred
stunning black-and-white photographs, Devin Allen
documents the uprising, his city, and the people who
live there, revealing a world of love, courage, struggle, and hope. Each image reveals the personality,
beauty, and spirit of Baltimore as his camera complicates ghetto stereotypes. We find smiles where one
might least expect them, hope doing battle against a system that sows desperation and
fear, and above all, resistance to the unrelenting pressures of racism in twenty-first-century
Allens work demonstrates a connection between resistance as a daily activity,
a way of life in the ghetto, and resistance as a political act, as played out in the
streets last spring. He documents resistance without judgment, without asking
the usual questions that outsiders might: Is it justified? Is it effective? Is it legal?
Resistance is represented not as a tactic, but as a fundamental aspect of life.
Washington Post
Photographer DEVIN ALLEN was born and raised in West Baltimore, surrounded, as he describes, by crime, drugs and murder. Allen received national
attention for his photographs of the protests in Baltimore following the death of
Freddie Gray, one of which landed on the cover of TIME magazine in May 2015.
His photographs have also appeared in New York Magazine, the Washington Post,
the New York Times, CNN, BBC, NBC News, Aperture magazine, and Yahoo!

Jewish Voice for Peace,

Foreword by Judith Butler

Jewish Voice for Peace has curated a collection of
essays that explore critical questions about antisemitism and why the term is too often unfairly applied
to those who are simply fighting for Palestinian human rights. This anthology provides a much-needed
tool for Palestinian solidarity activists and teachers, as well as Jewish communities. Featuring contributions from Omar Barghouti, Judith Butler, and Rebecca Vilkomerson, as well
as other activists, scholars, students, and cultural workers, On Antisemitism includes the
voices of Palestinians and Jews who are often marginalized in mainstream discussions of
If the charge of antisemitism becomes a tactic to suppress open criticism and
debate on the State of Israel, its practices of dispossession and occupation, its
founding and the ongoing implications of that founding for Palestinians, then
it will lose its claim to truth. It will be understood as a tactic that actually knows
the untruth of what it claims. Who will believe the charge when it is used to
name and oppose rising forms of fascism or actual ideologies bound up with its
actual toxicity? . . . We should be trying to build a world in which injustice is
named and all forms of racism, including antisemitism, are opposed as equally
unjust and unacceptable.
Judith Butler, from the Preface

Radicals in the Barrio

Magonistas, Socialists, Wobblies,
and Communists in the
Mexican-American Working Class
Justin Akers Chacn

Radicals in the Barrio uncovers the lost history and

rich tradition of political radicalism behind some of
the twentieth centurys most important social movements. Justin Akers Chacn documents the ways that
migrant workers carried with them radical political
ideologies, new organizational models, and the shared experience forged in the flames of
intense class struggle in Mexico as they crossed the border into the southwestern United
States during the first three decades of the twentieth century.
These communities were centrally involved in the great labor revolts, strikes, and civil rights
struggles of the periodfrom the Wheatland Hop Riot in 1913 and the Ludlow Massacre
of 1915 to the California farmworker uprising in 1933 and the massive San Antonio Pecan
Shellers Strike in 1938.
As Mexican and Chicano/a workers in the United States were subject to racial discrimination
and segregation, their participation as workers in class struggle was, and continues to be,
intimately bound up with the fight for civil rights and racial justice. Drawing from radical
ideologies and their own collective traditions, Mexican and Chicano/a working-class men
and women became agents of social transformation throughout the century.
JUSTIN AKERS CHACN is an activist, writer, and educator in the San Diego
Tijuana border region. He is a professor of Chicana and Chicano Studies at San
Diego City College. His previous work includes No One Is Illegal: Fighting Racism
and State Violence on the U.S.-Mexico Border (with Mike Davis).

100 Years of the Russian Revolution, 19172017

History of the
Russian Revolution
Centenary Edition

Leon Trotsky, Translated by Max Eastman

Regarded by many as among the most powerful
works of history ever written, this book offers an
unparalleled account of one of the most pivotal and
hotly debated events in world history. This book, released to coincide with the hundredth anniversary of
the Russian Revolution, reveals, from the perspective
of one of its central actors, the revolutions profoundly democratic, emancipatory character.
Originally published in three parts, Trotskys masterpiece is collected here in a single volume. It serves as the most vital and inspiring record of the Russian Revolution to date.
During the first two months of 1917 Russia was still a Romanov monarchy.
Eight months later the Bolsheviks stood at the helm. They were little known to
anybody when the year began, and their leaders were still under indictment for
state treason when they came to power. You will not find another such sharp turn
in history especially if you remember that it involves a nation of 150 million people. It is clear that the events of 1917, whatever you think of them, deserve study.
Leon Trotsky, from History of the Russian Revolution
The greatest history of an event that I know.

C. L. R. James

The History is his crowning work, both in scale and power and as the fullest expression of his ideas on revolution. As an account of a revolution, given by one of
its chief actors, it stands unique in world literature.
Isaac Deutscher
LEON TROTSKY was a leader of the Russian Revolution. Forced into exile in
1928, he devoted the rest of his life to fighting the degeneration of the revolution
and the rise of a new dictatorial regime. He fought an uncompromising battle,
defending the revolutions internationalist principles.

greatest revolutionaries.
Written shortly after its subjects death, On Lenin covers the period of
revolutionary struggle leading up to 1917 as well as the early years of Bolshevik power. We see a
man totally committed to the revolutionary cause, whose legacy was later corrupted under the Soviet
Unions Stalinist degeneration. Young Lenin, meanwhile, describes his early years and conversion to
Marxism, dispelling many of the myths later created by Soviet hagiography in the process. The essential guide for anyone wanting to understand Lenin as a thinker, active revolutionary, and personality.

The Bolsheviks Come to Power

The Revolution of 1917 in Petrograd
Alexander Rabinowitch
A classic work depicting the early months of the Russian Revolution,

months following the collapse of the tsarist regime in war-torn Russia,
the Bolshevik Party emerged from obscurity to overthrow the Provisional Government and establish the worlds first communist government. In this absorbing narrative, Alexander Rabinowitch refutes the
Soviet myth that the partys triumph in the October Revolution was inevitable. Exploring the changing
situation and aspirations of workers, soldiers, and Baltic fleet sailors in Petrograd, Rabinowitchs classic
account reveals the critical link between the partys revolutionary tactics and the Petrograd masses.
ALEXANDER RABINOWITCH is professor emeritus of Russian history at Indiana University and author of Prelude to Revolution: The Petrograd Bolsheviks and the July 1917 Uprising.

Henryk Grossman, Translated and edited by Rick Kuhn
Henryk Grossman was one of the best-known and most influential
Marxist economists of the twentieth century, and yet most of his work
remains unavailable to English-speaking audiences. This volume, collected and translated by Deutscher Prizewinning Grossman biographer
Rick Kuhn, assembles some of his most important essays and serves as
an accessible introduction to his project of recovering Marx. Grossman
highlights distinctive features of Marxs economic theory by contrasting it with the views of his forerunners, from Adam Smith to Jean Sismondi. He then provides a unique overview of the major debates
among Marxists over politics and economics between Marxs death and the rise of fascism in Germany.
HENRYK GROSSMAN (18811950) was a founding leader of the Jewish Social Democratic Party of Galicia and later a member of the Polish Communist Workers Party.

South African revolutionary and post-revolutionary experiences. The third engages with the lives and the
ideas of five important figures associated with Marxism: Georg Lukcs, Antonio Gramsci, James Burnham,
Dennis Brutus, and Daniel Bensad. Revolutionary Studies is rigorously and clearly written for anyone
wanting to understand the interrelationship between revolutionary theory and revolutionary practice.
