• Escaping the Prism – Fade into Black, by Jalil Muntaqim: Book Review by Phyllis Taub Greenleaf

    This book is a powerful tapestry of Scholarship, Activism and Poetry. The Personal with the Political gives this book balance and magnetism!

    During the time when key leaders of the Black Panther Party were assassinated by FBI operatives while asleep in their beds, Jalil Muntaqim, a new member of the BPP, was arrested just before his 20th birthday.

    Incarcerated in California and New York for the past 47 years, Muntaqim’s essays and poetry in ESCAPING THE PRISM are a living testimony to one man’s creativity, resilience and commitment to justice for himself, and all political prisoners in our “so called” ...........READ MORE

  • The Dangerous Class and Revolutionary Theory: Thoughts on the Making of the Lumpen/Proletariat

    by J. Sakai
    paperback

    308 pages
    ISBN: 978-1-894946-90-2

    J. Sakai’s ground-breaking, The “Dangerous Class” and Revolutionary Theory: Thoughts on the Making of the Lumpen/Proletariat, is our first major exploration of this most controversial and least understood “non-class” in revolutionary politics. It is an attempt to unknot the puzzle.  It encompasses the threads of criminality as well as gender, of breaking social boundaries and eating the bitterest of class politics.

In other words, how can people ...........READ MORE

Organizing the lumpenproletariat: Cliques and communists in Berlin during the Weimar Republic – Eve Rosenhaft (repost)
