An unassuming historian who changed our basic assumptions about history, Howard Zinn made his greatest subject not war but peace. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, he became convinced that there could be no such thing as a “just war,” as the vast majority of modern warfare’s victims are innocent civilians.
Perhaps no other small press has brought to light so many titles that moneyed interests have wanted to keep down—for reasons of censorship, squeamishness, or just bad blood. From Gary Webb's Dark Alliance, which drew links between the CIA and the crack cocaine explosion in the '90s, to Noam Chomsky's 9-11, read by millions but ignored by major U.S. papers when it was originally published in November, 2001, to Angela Davis's Abolition Democracy, which discusses the abolition of prison as well as Davis's own incarceration, and her experiences as "enemy of the state," here is a collection of books that are sure to provoke.
In the beginning, there was the word . . . . Then after that, there were graphic novels. (At least we think that's how the gospel goes.) From the groundbreaking Graphic Canon of Literature series to Elizabeth Swados's moving and hilarious My Depression, you can find our great illustrated and artistic books of all stripes in this collection.
Celebrate women's history with radical titles penned by some of our favorite women and non-binary poets and authors.

A healthy body and a healthy planet go hand in hand.
