1 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance

Hill, Gord PM Press Trade Paperback

Brand New 

The history of the colonization of the Americas by Europeans is often portrayed as a mutually beneficial process, in which '”civilization” was brought to the Natives, who in return shared their land and cultures. A more critical history might present it as a genocide in which Indigenous peoples were helpless victims, overwhelmed and awed by European military power. In reality, neither of these views is correct. 500 Years of Indigenous Resistance is more than a history of European colonization of the Americas. In this slim volume, Gord Hill chronicles the resistance by Indigenous peoples, which limited and shaped the forms and extent of colonialism. This history encompasses North and South America, the development of nation-states, and the resurgence of Indigenous resistance in the post-WW2 era.

3 A People's History of Sports in the United States

Zirin, Dave Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

In this long-awaited book from the rising superstar of sportswriting, Dave Zirin offers a riotously entertaining chronicle of larger-than-life sporting characters and dramatic contests and what amounts to an alternative history of the United States as seen through the games its people played. Through Zirin's eyes, sports are never mere games, but a reflection of—and spur toward—the political conflicts that shape American society. Half a century before Jackie Robinson was born, the black ballplayer Moses Fleetwood Walker brandished a revolver to keep racist fans at bay, then took his regular place in the lineup. In the midst of the Depression, when almost no black athletes were allowed on the U.S. Olympic team, athletes held a Counter Olympics where a third of the participants were African American. A People's History of Sports in the United States is replete with surprises for seasoned sports fans, while anyone interested in history will be amazed by the connections Zirin draws between politics and pop flies. As Jeff Chang, author of Can't Stop Won't Stop, puts it: After you read him, you'll never see sports the same way again. This sprawling, insightful, and contrarian book is worth reading for its portrayal of the rebel athletes to whom it is dedicated, and to whom we are all indebted. —Time Dave Zirin is also the author of What's My Name Fool! and Welcome to the Terrordome.

4 After the Future

Berardi, Franco “Bifi” AK 1849350590 / 9781849350594 Paperback

Brand New! 

After the Future explores our century-long obsession with the concept of the future. Beginning with F. T. Marinetti's Futurist Manifesto and the worldwide race toward a new and highly mechanized society that defined the Century of Progress, highly respected media activist Franco Berardi traces the genesis of future-oriented thought through the punk movement of the early '70s and into the media revolution of the '90s. Cyberculture, the last truly utopian vision of the future, has ended in a clash, and left behind an ever-growing system of virtual life and actual death, of virtual knowledge and actual war. Our future, Berardi argues, has come and gone; the concept has lost its usefulness. Now it's our responsibility to decide what comes next. Drawing on his own involvement with the Autonomia movement in Italy and his collaboration and friendship with leading thinkers of the European political left, including FĂ©lix Guattari and Antonio Negri, Berardi presents a highly nuanced analysis of the state of the contemporary working class, and charts a course out of the modern dystopian moment. Franco Berardi, better known in the United States as Bifo, is an Italian autonomist philosopher and media activist. One of the founders of the notorious Radio Alice, a pirate radio station that became the voice of the autonomous youth movement of Bologna in the late 1970s, Bifo is the author of multiple works of theory, including the recently published The Soul at Work and The Post-Futurist Manifesto.

5 An Afternoon With Timothy Leary (Audio CD)

Leary, Timothy & Hyatt, Christopher CD

Brand New 

In 1987 at Timothy Leary's house in Beverly Hills, California, Tim and Dr. Christopher S. Hyatt got together and made this recording. But the cassette went missing for over 20 years and just recently resurfaced! Their discussion is fascinating on many levels. Among other things, you might note how these two very talented people brainstorm the then-upcoming re-release of Tim's Future History Series: Exo-Psychology (redone as Info-Psychology), Neuropolitics (retitled Neuropolitique), The Game of Life, Intelligence Agents, and What Does WoMan Want? Some of the ideas came to fruition, some did not. Such is the nature of the creative process...

11 Chaos, Creativity and Cosmic Consciousness

Sheldrake, Rupert; McKenna, Terence & Abraham, Ralph Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

Three of the most original thinkers of our time explore issues that call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life. A wide-ranging investigation of the ecology of inner and outer space, the role of chaos theory in the dynamics of human creation, and the rediscovery of traditional wisdom. In this book of trialogues, the late psychedelic visionary and shamanologist Terence McKenna, acclaimed biologist and originator of the morphogenetic fields theory Rupert Sheldrake, and mathematician and chaos theory scientist Ralph Abraham explore the relationships between chaos and creativity and their connection to cosmic consciousness. Their observations call into question our current views of reality, morality, and the nature of life in the universe. The authors challenge the reader to the deepest levels of thought with wide-ranging investigations of the ecology of inner and outer space, the role of chaos in the dynamics of human creation, and the resacralization of the world. Among the provocative questions the authors raise are: Is Armageddon a self-fulfilling prophecy? Are we humans the imaginers or the imagined? Are the eternal laws of nature still evolving? What is the connection between physical light and the light of consciousness? Part ceremony, part old-fashioned intellectual discussion, these trialogues are an invitation to a new understanding of what Jean Houston calls the dreamscapes of our everyday waking life.

12 City of Widows: An Iraqi Woman's Account of War and Resistance

Zangana, Haifa Trade Paperback

Brand New 

In City of Widows, Haifa Zangana tells the story of her country, from the early twentieth century through the US-UK invasion and the current occupation. She brings to light a sense of Iraq as a society mainly of secularists who have been denied, through years of sanctions, war, and occupation, a system within which to build the country according to their own values. She points to the long history of political activism and social participation of Iraqi women, and the fact that, before the recent invasion, they had been among the most liberated of their gender in the Middle East. Finally, she writes about Baghdad today as a city populated by bereaved women and children who have lost their loved ones and their land, but who are still emboldened by the native right to resist and liberate themselves to create an independent Iraq.

14 Common Ground in a Liquid City: Essays in Defense of an Urban Future

Hern, Matt Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

If we want to preserve what's still left of the natural world, we need to stop using so much of it. And cities are the best chance we have left for a sustainable future ... but only if they remain vibrant, dynamic spaces that are unfolded by millions of people working together—and not by master plans and planners. What will it take to make our cities truly sustainable? In a world where the flow of money and jobs and people is largely determined by the whims of global capital, Matt Hern's Common Ground in a Liquid City is a refreshingly down-to-earth look at the importance of place in the urban future. Using his own hometown of Vancouver—the poster city for sustainable urban development—as a foil, Matt travels around the globe in search of the elements that make our cities livable. Along the way, he pieces together a very different picture of urban renewal, one in which place regains its flavor and its funk, and cities become much more than bland investment opportunities. Each of Hern's ten chapters focuses on a central theme of city life: diversity, street life, crime, population density, water and natural life, gentrification, and globalism. What emerges in the end is an appealing portrait of what the urban future might look like—environmentally friendly, locally focused, and governed from below. Engaging, accessible, and relentlessly original, Common Ground in a Liquid City is an appealing portrait of what the urban future might look like—if we can get our act together. The best way to learn about your own city is to leave it. The second best way is to read Common Ground in a Liquid City.—David Tracey, author of Guerilla Gardening: A Manualfesto If you want to be a dweller, an inhabitant, a real citizen—not just a resident, a consumer of residence—if you want to begin to pay your ecological debts without leaving the city, this is the book you need to read. It is controversial. It will challenge you in a thousand ways ... for good.—Gustavo Esteva, co-author of Grassroots Postmodernism and Escaping Education One of the best ways to experience your own city is through the travels that you take to other parts of the globe. Matt Hern's Common Ground in a Liquid City takes this idea to heart. It reads as a set of dispatches from abroad—a series of artfully engaging postcards in which he explores the nature (and foibles) of urban planning, public space, and civic process in Vancouver—all while wandering the highways and byways of some of the world?s most vibrant urban centres.—Andrew Pask, Director, Vancouver Public Space Network Matt Hern lives and works in East Vancouver, where he is the director of the Purple Thistle Center. He holds a PhD in urban studies, lectures globally and teaches at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. His books include Field Day, Watch Yourself, and Everywhere All the Time.

15 Communication Revolution: Critical Junctures and the Future of Media

McChesney, Robert W New Press 2008 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 301 p. Audien 

In Communication Revolution both a sharp and cogent analysis of the history of media studies and a clarion call for citizen participation Robert McChesney argues that with the Internet and wireless technology set to overtake traditional media, we have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build a more egalitarian communication system. He brilliantly shows how communication scholarship has failed to rise to the challenge of conceiving what this system might look like, leaving it to the burgeoning media reform movement (in which he has been a key player) to fill the vision vacuum. Bringing both his authoritative analysis and unparalleled historical knowledge to bear on an urgent issue of our time, McChesney challenges us to transform the way we think about media. As Noam Chomsky has said, Robert McChesney s work has been of extraordinary importance....It should be read with care and concern by people who care about freedom and basic rights.

27 Fingerprints and Behavior

Campbell, Edward 0983479518 / 9780983479512 Trade Paperback



Can fingerprints predict hand coordination in sports, will the two handed basketball free throw go off the rim or swish through the net, whether a golf drive will go straight, hook or slice? Can competitiveness, multitasking abilities, perhaps even degrees of honesty be predicted at birth? This book is certain to raise controversy throughout professional and academic circles as it challenges current psychological theories, and requires new approaches to child rearing, education aptitude and human resource assessments and psychological evaluations. This well illustrated and referenced work is the new primer for these fields.

28 Food of the Gods: The Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge a Radical History of Plants, Drugs, and Human Evolution

McKenna, Terence Bantam Books 1993 553371304 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 336 p. Audien 

Why, as a species, are humans so fascinated by altered states of consciousness? Can altered states reveal something to us about our origins and our place in nature? In Food of the Gods, ethnobotanist Terence McKenna's research on man's ancient relationship with chemicals opens a doorway to the divine, and perhaps a solution for saving our troubled world. McKenna provides a revisionist look at the historical role of drugs in the East and the West, from the ancient spice, sugar, and rum trades to marijuana, cocaine, synthetics, and even television--illustrating the human desire for the food of the gods and the powerful potential to replace abuse of illegal drugs with a shamanic understanding, insistence on community, reverence for nature, and increased self-awareness. BLURBS # Deserves to be the modern classic on mind-altering drugs and hallucinogens. --The Washington Post Terence McKenna is the most important--and most entertaining visionary scholar in America--Tom Robbins The culture's foremost spokesperson for the psychedelic experience...Those who know and enjoy Joseph Campbell's work will almost certainly appreciate McKenna. --L.A. Weekly An elequent proposal for recovering something vital--a sense of the sacred, the transcendent, the Absolute--before it's too late. --Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Meaning & Medicine, Recovering the Soul, and Space, Time & Medicine

29 For a Critique of the Political Economy of the Sign

Baudrillard, Jean, Professor, and Levin, Charles (Translated by) Telos Press, Limited 1981 914386247 Trade paperback

New Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 214 p. Audien 

Translated by Charles Levin Having been sought in the sphere of economic production for too long, according to Jean Baudrillard, the mainspring of modern society must be located in the sphere of consumption and of the cultural system in general. As with artistic, intellectual, and scientific production, culture is immediately produced as sign and as exchange value. Hence, in modern society consumption defines the stages where the commodity is immediately produced as sign, and signs as commodities. This collection of essays attempts an analysis of the sign form in the same way that Marx's critique of political economy sought an analysis of the commodity form: as the commodity is at the same time both exchange value and use value, the sign is both signifier and signified. Thus, it necessitates an analysis on two levels, with the author confronting all of the conceptual obstacles of semiology in order to provide the same radical critique that Marx developed of classical political economy

30 For Socialism

Landauer, Gustav Telos Press, Limited 1978 914386115 Trade paperback

New 

From his protest against Bebel's exclusion of the anarchists from the Second International in 1893 until his murder in 1919 by the reactionary troops supppressing the Bavarian revolution, Landauer remained a tireless critic of all forms of bureaucratism and an advocate of a decentralized, libertarian socialism. A friend of Buber, his influence also extended into the anarcho-socialist trends of the early Zionist movement and the development of the Kibbutz. Originally published in 1911, For Socialism is a critique of an official Marxism that had become an obstacle to emancipation. It anticipates much of critical theory's vindication of subjectivity, its critique of scientistic ideology, its rejection of a determinist historiography. For Socialism unites themes from a wide range of radical currents that have been hitherto repressed by the guardians of orthodox Marxism.
