Friends of PM Press, October 2014 Edition

This month I received:

  • Patty Hearst & the Twinkie Murders: A Tale of Two Trials, plus Why Was Michelle Shocked Shell-Shocked? and Reflections of a Realist: Outspoken Interview, by Paul Krasner, Number 14 in PM Press’ Outspoken Authors series, edited by Terry Bisson. Krasner is perhaps best known for publishing the controversial Disneyland Memorial Orgy (NSFW) in 1967.
  • Settlers: The Mythology of the White Proletariate from the Mayflower to Modern, by J. Sakai. Co-published with Kersplebedeb. This is an expanded new edition of the original which was published in 1983.
  • The City Is Ours: Squatting and Autonomous Movements in Europe from the 1970’s to Present, edited by Bart van der Steen, Ask Katzeff, and Leendert Hoogenhuijze, with a preface by George Katsiaficas and foreword by Geronimo. If the topic mater wasn’t already close enough to my heart to make this the next book I’m going to read, the title page image includes a “why call it tourist season if we can’t shot them?” banner.

Friends of PM Press, May 2013 Edition

About a week and a half ago, I received:

  • The Human Front, plus “Other Deviations: The Human Front Exposed” and “The Future Will Happen Here, Too” and “Working the Wet End” Outspoken Interview, by Ken MacLeod. Number 10 in PM Press’ Outspoken Authors series, edited by Terry Bisson.
  • In Letters of Blood and Fire: Work, Machines, and the Crisis of Capitalism, by George Caffentzis. This contains reprints of articles from 1980 through 2010. Part of the Common Notions imprint, based on Brooklyn, NY. This is the same imprint as Sylvia Federici’s Revolution at Point Zero.
  • Asia’s Unknown Uprisings, Volume 2: People Power in the Philippines, Burma, Tibet, China, Taiwan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Thailand, and Indonesia, 1946-2009, by George Katsiaficas.

I am especially excited about The Human Front. The Outspoken Authors series has been great so far. There were a couple more books that I was hoping to receive this month, but I’ll just have to be a little bit more patient.
