Taschenbuch, Kleinformat, 320 S.
Whence do Stockholm Syndrome and Broken Window Theory derive their names? What is the common root of aristocracy and democracy? Who gets diagnosed with Anarchia and Drapetomania? How did voting kill Edgar Allen Poe, and why is a crater on the dark side of the moon named for the man who blew up the Tsar? Alternately scathing and sublime, Contradictionary pulls back the curtain from the war within every word, revealing the conflict behind the façade of the commonplace.
In the tradition of The Devil’s Dictionary, our Contradictionary assembles a wide range of wit and whimsy. This is no mere miscellany, but a lighthearted work of serious literature, concentrating a wealth of ideas and history into aphorisms and anecdotes.

Story and art by Mattias Elforp. Set a year after the first book, we follow Pirate and Information as they rejoin the fight for freedom in the City that is the entire world to its inhabitants. Back in the free and illegal flow of information after a year without it, Pirate and Information are almost overwhelmed, but that's ok. It's part of the high. This all leads up to an event of great importance for the resistance. It's the beginning of something new, a seed for the future.
128 pages of stories about family, nostalgia, chance, witchcraft, sex, abstinence, economy, and revenge. Science fiction in a future that is already old, a dangerous place where winners lose and losers win. Anna comics are inspired by life during wartime, but they are never specifically political. Instead she distills the psyche of a post-apocalyptic culture into jet-black, surreal allegories.
Anna Ehrlemark is well known in Eastern Europe for her unconventional, twisted narratives and her striking visual style. Her comics explore feminist, queer, and anti-capitalist themes and she has been published by the Balkan collectives Stripburger, Fijuk, and Komikaze.

New York, 1989: as a decade of activism around the urban housing crisis and beyond comes to a close, legendary graphic artist Seth Tobocman is there to document it all in his bold comic style.You Don't Have to Fuck People Over to Survive collects many of Tobocman's most enduring images in a powerhouse assemblage that cuts right to the heart of 1980s activism. All the high (and low) points are there: the imprisonment of Mumia Abu-Jamal; the rise of Reaganomics; the struggle against apartheid; the Miami Race Riots; and, of course, the turf wars that dominated the city of New York, as activists and low-income families alike demanded their rights to the city's abandoned buildings.Now available in a brand-new twentieth anniversary edition, this stunning and candid portrait of a decade of struggle to preserve basic human rights and build a better world is sure to appeal to a new generation of activists ready to demand the right to the city, and worthy of a place on the shelf of every historian of urban struggle.Includes a new introduction by arts activist and historian Alan W. Moore.
By itself, this is a book about work, but it's also more than that. It is an outline of an analysis of capitalism: what it is, how it works, how we might dis-mantle it. And the book and the analysis are outgrowths of something more a movement of people determined to fight it.
So this book isn't just an attempt to describe reality but also a tool with which to change it. If any of the words or illustrations resonate with you, don't leave them trapped on these pages write them on the wall, shout them over the intercom at your former workplace, change them as you see fit and release them into the world.
This project is the combined effort of a group of people who have already spent many years in pitched struggle against capitalism. What qualifies us to write this? Some of us used to be students or pizza deliverers or dishwashers; others still are construction workers or graphic designers or civic-minded criminals. But all of us have lived under capitalism since we were born, and that makes us experts on it. The same goes for you. No one has to have a degree in economics to understand what's happening: it s enough to get a paycheck or a pink slip and pay attention. We re suspicious of the experts who get their credentials from on high, who have incentives to minimize things that are obvious to everyone else.
Like every attempt to construct a scale model of the world, this one is bound to be partial in both senses of the word. To present the whole story, it would have to be as vast as history. There s no way to be unbiased, either: our positions and values inevitably influence what we include and what we leave out. What we offer here is simply one perspective from our side of the counter and our side of the barricades. If it lines up with yours, let's do something about it.
Many of the connections between punk and anarchism are well recognized (albeit with some important contentions). This recognition is usually focussed on how punk bands and scenes express anarchist political philosophies or anarchistic praxes, while much less attention is paid to expressions of ‘punk’ by anarchist activist groups. This pamphlet examines the distinct, yet overlapping, political approaches of Class War and CrimethInc. They are compared and contrasted, and in doing so, pervasive assumptions about the relationship between punk and anarchism are challenged, refuting the supposed dichotomy between ‘lifestylist’ anarchism and ‘workerist’ anarchism.

Originally published in 1987 by the now defunct Camdem Press, this undisputed classic of anarchist introductory texts returns in an updated version from Anne Bonny Books. Clifford Harper's artwork has been used and abused throughout the world by anarchist zinesters, poster designers, bookfair organisers and the like. His bold striking style lends a militant strength to the revolutionary subjects he depicts. Clifford published several books of his artwork through his own Agraphia Books. Most are still available from good radical outlets!
"It seems Clifford decided to redo this book in his new artwork style and not to reissue this version. I heard rumours that a couple of well known anarchist publishers were going to publish it but after many years waiting it seems he has the artistic equivalent of writers block! Judging from the sample work he has posted on his social media pages the new book will be very different to this one —more extensive in its scope and detail. I reckon this book is a classic as it is but I took the liberty of updating it slightly. It was one of the books I grew up with —as a fledgling anarchist!— alongside V for Vendetta, Malatesta, Kropotkin and Emma Goldman. I make no apology for pirating this book but I do want to thank Clifford Harper for the inspiration that his artwork has given me and everyone over the years and I wish him all the best with finishing his new book soon.' – Anne Bonny

I denna fotobok publiceras 185 bilder tagna i Stockholm åren 1985–1989 av 14 ungdomar med tillgång till en spegelreflexkamera och en filmrulle Tri-X. Bilderna togs under fester, aktioner och vardag. Ungdomarna demonstrerade, slogs med polisen och skinnskallar, festade, hade ändlösa stormöten, gick på konserter på Ultrahuset i Handen. De hängde på de numera nedlagda Söderkrogarna Stopet, 11:an, Strömmen och Krönet, gav ut tidningar och affischerade, lagade mat och åkte riket runt och propagerade revolution. Dessutom ockuperade de hus.
Fokus ligger på husockupationer och den politiska aktivism som ungdomarna stod för. Mellan 1985 och 1989 ockuperades flera rivningshotade hus i Stockholm. Ungdomarna som genomförde protestaktionerna menade att fastighetsägarna medvetet lät husen förfalla i ren spekulation i väntan på att marknadspriserna skulle gå upp.
”Med tanke på att bostadsbristen då som nu var enorm, protesterade vi mot att fullt beboeliga hus stod tomma. Alla husen som vi ockuperade på 80-talet står kvar än idag, om det är på grund av oss låter vi vara osagt.”
Bilderna är nu – 30 år senare – kommenterade och placerade i ett sammanhang av dem som var med då. De visar ett stycke Stockholmshistoria som aldrig tidigare publicerats i bokform.
First published in 1982 as part of Crass’s album Christ The Album. This text is one of the seminal “anarcho-punk” tirades against all that the Thatcher years encompassed. Now with a new self critical introduction and in a neat spined pocket book format from Active, this is a nicely produced small format paperback.
