Landscapes, a collection of John Berger's essays on the relationship between art and politics edited by Tom Overton, is a companion to Portraits. This new book, published for Berger's 90th birthday, is an essential volume of diverse pieces – essays, short stories, and poems – all of which explore what art tells us about ourselves. We have 40% off ALL the books on our John Berger Bookshelf until November 6th.
To celebrate, here’s a video of John Berger exchanging ideas with Susan Sontag on the question of storytelling and the transforming role of the storyteller from the oral tradition to modern writing.
We are excited to announce the latest set in our Radical Thinkers series — four classic works from leading black radical intellectuals — publishing on November 15th.
Angela Davis’s collection of voices, originally published in 1971 is introduced as ‘an explosive document that is truly of and for our time’, but proves to be a text just as necessary in today's political climate. Manning Marable’s highly acclaimed reflection on African-American politics brings us into the more recent past, with a response to Barack Obama and the question of a ‘Post-Racial Politics’. From WEB Du Bois’s autobiographical essay Darkwater, to Michele Wallace’s consideration of the late-twentieth century black female experience in America, these are essential texts in both our series of radical thinkers, and in studying and celebrating African and Caribbean history.
