We are reprinting two of our classic books, Days of War, Nights of Love and the Contradictionary. If we can raise enough money to do long-lasting print runs of each, we can make them freely available in high-quality digital editions forever. But we need your help!
In return for your assistance, we’re preparing special limited editions of the books for you, along with some other rewards. We’re especially excited about the Unicorn Edition of the Contradictionary.
If you’ve missed one or both of these important works, this is your chance.
Days of War, Nights of Love presents a passionate appeal for a politics of liberation that approaches life as a joyous adventure. It was the first book we published—it has been more than twenty-one years now since the first printing came back from the factory. A classic foundational document of 21st-century anarchism, it has introduced several generations to radical ideas and possibilities. More details here.
We published the Contradictionary in 2013: a glossary of revolution exploring the war in every word. In the tradition of The Devil’s Dictionary and other works of alphabetized audacity, the Contradictionary assembles a wide range of wit and whimsy. It is no mere miscellany, but a lighthearted work of serious literature, concentrating a wealth of ideas and history into aphorisms and anecdotes. More details here.
As of December 9th, this project has raised $24,000 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 14 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $5, you will get two PDF books. For a pledge of $25, you will get two hardcover books.
