Ebook flash sale! 90% off!

The sun is out and we're feeling generous! Stock up your kindle for the long evenings ahead with 90% off ALL our ebooks! This flash sale will end on Sunday at 23.59 EST.

Apologies if you don't have an e-reader, but all our print books are currently 40% off paperbacks, 30% off hardbacks, so it's not all bad news.

Exciting new books include New Dark Age - James Bridle's brilliant new work revealing the dark clouds that loom over our technological future;  Eileen Truax's timely We Built the Wall: How the US Keeps Out Asylum Seekers from Mexico, Central America and Beyond; Raj Patel and Jason Moore's A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things: A Guide to Capitalism, Nature, and the Future of the Planet; Heather Gautney's analysis of Bernie Sanders' campaign, Crashing the Party; and Municipal Dreams - a compelling history of council housing in the UK.

Or how about tackling one of those *classics* or *massive doorstop tomes* that you never had the chance to before? Reading Capital by Althusser, Balibar, Ranciere et al; The Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg (vol. 1 and vol. 2 and the Letters); Isaac Deutscher's The Prophet: The Life of Leon Trotsky; Lefebvre'sThe Critique of Everyday Life; Fredric Jameson's The Modernist Papers; or Perry Anderson's Lineages of the Absolutist State and Passages from Antiquity to Feudalism.

We have lots of reading lists to help narrow down your choices: see our Beach Reading here, as well as all our new Spring paperbacks. You can also look through these recent reading lists: Racism and the Rise of the Right, The Politics of Climage Change, Karl Marx: 200 Years, 50 Years on from 1968: Key Reading'68 and the Situationists, A Walk Through Paris: French History reading, and International Women's Day Reading.
