About Haymarket Books
Haymarket Books is a radical, independent, nonprofit book publisher based in Chicago.
Our mission is to publish books that contribute to struggles for social and economic justice,
as a vibrant and organic part of social movements and the education and development of a
critical, engaged, international Left. Since our founding in 2001, weve published more than
five hundred titles. Our authors include Arundhati Roy, Rebecca Solnit, Angela Y. Davis,
Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Amy Goodman, Wallace Shawn, Mike Davis, Winona
LaDuke, Dave Zirin, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.

Books can be the sparks for revolution. I am so grateful for all Haymarket Books has
done for the past fifteen years to fuel the subterranean fire of protest. They are my go-to
publisher for radical politics and the ideas we need for our struggles. Tom Morello

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 chal-
lenges 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.
Maya Schenwar, Truthout editor in chief and Haymarket author

People Uncomfortable
Michael Bennett and Dave Zirin
Foreword by Martellus Bennett

Super Bowl Champion and two-time Pro Bowler


Michael Bennett is an outspoken proponent for
social justice and a man without a censor.

Michael Bennett is a fearless activist, a feminist,


a grassroots philanthropist, an organizer, and a
changemaker. Hes also one of the most scathingly
humorous athletes on the planet, and he wants to make you uncomfortable.

Bennett adds his unmistakable voice to discussions of racism and police violence, Black

protest in history, and the responsibilities of athletes as role models to speak out against in-
justice. Following in the footsteps of activist-athletes from Muhammad Ali to Colin Kaeper-
nick, Bennett demonstrates his outspoken tenacity both on and off the field.

Written with award-winning sportswriter and author Dave Zirin, Things That Make White
People Uncomfortable is a sports book for our turbulent times, a memoir, and a manifesto
as hilarious and engaging as it is illuminating.

Michael Bennett is a two-time Pro Bowler, Pro Bowl MVP, Super Bowl
champion, and two-time NFC champion. He is the cofounder with Pele Ben-
nett of The Bennett Foundation, which educates underserved children and
communities through free, accessible programming in Hawaii, Washington,

thor, and younger brother to Michael Bennett.

The Torture Machine
Racism and Police Violence in Chicago
Flint Taylor

A warrior for the people, Flint Taylor has spent


nearly fifty years fighting for justice, from the
courtrooms of Cook County to the United States
Supreme Court.

With his colleagues at the Peoples Law Office (PLO),


Taylor has argued landmark civil rights cases that
have exposed corruption and cover-up within the
Chicago Police Department (CPD) and throughout the citys political machine, from alder-
men to the mayors office.

The Torture Machine takes the reader from the 1969 murders of Black Panther Party chair-
man Fred Hampton and Panther Mark Clarkand the historic, thirteen-year trial that fol-
lowedthrough the dogged pursuit of chief detective Jon Burge, the leader of a torture ring
within the CPD that used barbaric methods, including electric shock, to elicit false confes-
sions from suspects.

Taylor and the PLO gathered evidence from multiple cases to bring suit against the CPD,
breaking the departments code of silence that had enabled decades of cover-up. The legal
precedents they set have since been adopted in human rights legislation around the world.

Flint Taylor is a founding partner of the Peoples Law Office in Chicago. He is


one of the lawyers for the families of slain Black Panther leaders Fred Hampton
and Mark Clark, has represented many survivors of Chicago police torture over
the past thirty years, and is counsel in several illegal search and wrongful death
cases brought against the Milwaukee Police Department.

A Nation Unmade by War
Bombing the Rubble
in the Age of Trump
Tom Engelhardt

From the election from hell to the future according


to Donald Trump, A Nation Unmade by War surveys
American exceptionalism in the age of absurdity.

As veteran author Tom Engelhardt argues, despite


having a more massive, technologically advanced, and
better-funded military than any other power on the
planet, in the last decade and a half of constant war across the greater Middle East and parts
of Africa, the United States has won nothing. Its unending wars, in fact, have only contribut-
ed to a world growing more chaotic by the second.

From its founding, the United States has been a nation made by wars. Through incisive
analysis and characteristic wit, Engelhardt ponders whether in this century, its citizenry and
government will be unmade by them.

Tom Engelhardt created and runs the TomDispatch.com website, a project of


the Nation Institute, where he is a fellow. He is the author of The United States of
Fear, Shadow Government, and The American Way of War, all published by Hay-
market Books; a highly praised history of American triumphalism in the Cold
War, The End of Victory Culture; and a novel, The Last Days of Publishing.

Every Body Has a Story
Beverly Gologorsky

Revealing the fragility of the ties that bind, Every


Body Has a Story is a grim yet lyrical journey into
that other America just around the corner.

What a book! Gologorsky is at her best,


weaving a tapestry of the lives of very real
people, people whose lives deserve her care,
her unsparing eye, and her compassion. Here
is a story that cuts to the core of the way things
are, and the way they canall of a sudden
become. Your heart might be ripped out by this book, but it will get placed back
inside with a larger capacity to love and beat onwhat a book, indeed.
Elizabeth Strout, author of My Name is Lucy Barton
and Pulitzer Prizewinning Olive Kitteridge
Gologorskys compassion and knowledge of the human heart reveal the un-
spoken emotional layers in marriage, parenthood, friendship, and unexpected
love. In beautiful and lucid prose, the story of two families caught in some of
the most difficult contemporary crosscurrents builds to a crescendo with mem-
orable characters that remain with the reader. A deep and gripping novel until
the very last words.
Jane Lazarre, author of Beyond the Whiteness of Whiteness:
Memoir of a White Mother of Black Sons

Beverly Gologorsky is the author of two acclaimed novels, The Things We Do to


Make it Home, a New York Times Notable Book, and Stop Here.

The Long Term
Resisting Life Sentences,
Building Liberatory Movements
Edited by Alice Kim, Erica Meiners,
Jill Petty, Audrey Petty, Beth Richie,
and Sarah Ross

Powerful, provocative narratives of people sur-


viving the devastating effects of life in long-term
incarceration.

Long Term Offenders, or LTOs, is the states term for those it condemns to effective death by
imprisonment. Often serving sentences of sixty to eighty years, LTOs bear the brunt of the
bipartisan embrace of mass incarceration heralded by the tough on crime agenda of the
1990s and 2000s. Like the rest of the United States prison populationthe worlds highest
per capitathey are disproportionately poor and non-white.

The Long Term brings these often silenced voices to light, offering a powerful indictment
of the prison-industrial complex from activists, scholars, and those directly surviving and
resisting these sentences. In showing the devastation caused by a draconian prison system,
the essays also highlight the humanity and courage of the people most affected.

This striking collection of essays gives voice to people both inside and outside prison strug-
gling for liberation, dismantles claims that the tough on crime agenda and LTO sentenc-
ing keep us safe, and reveals the white supremacism and patriarchy upon which the prison
system rests. In its place, the contributors propose a range of far-reaching reforms and raise
the even more radical demand of abolition, drawing on the experience of campaigns in the
United States and beyond.

Alice Kim, Erica Meiners, Jill Petty, Audrey Petty, Beth Richie, and Sarah
Ross are members of the Prison + Neighborhood Arts Project, which has been
working with inmates in Chicagos maximum security Stateville prison since
2011. Committed to radical, intersectional feminism, the project seeks stronger
and safer communities without further enhancing policing, prisons, and borders.

color from the Global South, weaving together cross-generational histories of feminist activ-
ism across national borders. These engaging interviews with sister comrades such as Angela
Davis, Margo Okazawa-Rey, Himani Bannerji, and more will inform, inspire, and activate the

es and forming solidarities across borders to transform unjust structures around the globe.

cades in the United States, India, Mexico, Palestine, Nigeria, South Africa, and beyond.

across gender, race, class, sexual, and national divides that points the way forward.

ment of African American Studies at Syracuse University. Cartys activist and
research work spans Black labor struggles, migration, and sexuality in Canada,

Striking to Survive
Workers Resistance
to Factory Relocations in China
Fan Shigang, introduction
by Pun Ngai and Sam Austin

Striking to Survive documents struggles by Chi-


nese workers to hold on to their jobs, pensions,
and livelihoods.

Countering the popular myth that Chinese workers


are stealing American jobs, Striking to Survive docu-
ments a recent wave of factory closures in Chinas Pearl River Delta and struggles by workers
there to persevere through grave economic insecurity.

The struggles of these workers in Chinas industrial centers are shaping the future of labor
and democracy not only in China but throughout the world. These vivid stories of workers
at factories that supply the multinational corporations Walmart and Uniqlo, compiled by
worker-activists and circulated underground, provide a unique on-the-ground perspective
on the most recent wave of militancy of Chinas enormous working class.

Fan Shigang was born into a family of workers for state-owned enterprises in
a northern Chinese city. He has worked as a basic-level employee in several
machining factories. He is a contributor to the underground labor periodical
Factory Stories, conducting interviews with factory workers in southern China
and documenting their lives, work, and struggles.

Indefensible
Democracy, Counter-Revolution,
and the Rhetoric of Anti-Imperialism
Rohini Hensman

How could anyone who calls themselves a socialist support a dictator?


Unfortunately, there are socialists who claim to be anti-imperialists but
oppose only Western imperialism and the despots it supports, while
ignoring or even supporting other imperialist nations like Russia and
defending dictators such as Bashar al-Assad in Syria. In this timely book,
Hensman explains how we got here, taking up important case studies of conflicts such as those in Russia,
Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Bosnia. Finally, she argues for a genuine internationalism that supports mass strug-
gles for freedom and democracy, no matter what regime they are fighting against.

Rohini Hensman is the author of Workers, Unions, and Global Capitalism: Lessons from India.

In the Red Corner
The Marxism of Jos Carlos Maritegui
Mike Gonzalez

The first English-language biography of one of Latin Americas most


important, innovative, and enduringly relevant Marxist thinkers. Jos
Carlos Maritegui (18941930) is widely recognized across Latin
America as one of the most important and innovative Marxist thinkers
of the twentieth century. Yet his life and work are largely unknown to
the English-speaking world. In this gripping political biographythe
first written in EnglishMike Gonzalez introduces readers to the inspiring life and thought of the Pe-
ruvian socialist. As one of the first modern thinkers to discuss what Marxism has to offer, and to learn
from, the struggles of Indigenous peoples, his ideas have an immediate relevance in the context of
Standing Rock and other native-led fights challenging pipelines across North America.

Mike Gonzalez is the coeditor of Arms and the People (Pluto, 2012) and author of Hugo
Chavez: Socialist for the Twenty-First Century (Pluto, 2014).

State Capitalism in Russia
Tony Cliff

Over a quarter of a century after the Soviet Unions collapse, many con-
tinue to associate socialism with Joseph Stalins totalitarian regime.
State Capitalism in Russia, first published in 1955, offers a radically
different interpretation of what happened in the decades after the
Russian Revolution: that Stalins assault on the gains of the 1917 revo-
lution caused the reemergence of class divisions and capitalist modes
of production. This argument about the development of state capital-
ism became a cornerstone of an anti-Stalinist socialist movement that
insisted that socialism must be founded on workers power and mass democracy.

Long out of print, this classic work of rigorous, unflinchingly honest analysis remains essential for
anyone trying to understand the degeneration of a revolution that had once inspired the world.

Tony Cliff was a lifelong organizer within the international socialist movement. His
many works include a three-part biography of Lenin.

Historical Materialism Book Series
Editorial Board: Sebastian Budgen (Paris), Steve Edwards (London), Marcel van der Linden
(Amsterdam), Peter Thomas (London)

The capitalist crisis of the twenty-first century has been met by a resurgence of interest
in critical Marxist theory. Yet the publishing institutions committed to Marxism have
contracted markedly since the high point of the 1970s. The Historical Materialism Book
Series is dedicated to addressing this situation by making available important works of
Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical contributions
in the form of original monographs, translated texts, and reprints of classicsas the basis
for vigorous intellectual debate and exchange on the left.

Studies in Critical Social Sciences
Editor: David Fasenfest

Modern capitalism began the twenty-first century seemingly victorious as the dominant
social and economic organizing principle in the world. Rampant deregulation accompanied
a wholesale attack on the social, economic, and political gains of the prior century under the
guise of increasing competitiveness and the need to respond to the forces of globalization.
The peer-reviewed Studies in Critical Social Sciences book series offers insights into
the current reality by exploring the content and consequence of power relationships un-
der capitalism, by considering the spaces of opposition and resistance to these changes,
and by articulating capitalism with other systems of power and dominationfor exam-
ple race, gender, culturethat have been defining our new age.
Studies in Critical Social Sciences includes the subseries Studies in Critical Research
on Religion and Critical Global Studies.
