Salvage Editions

Radical writing from Verso Books and Salvage.

Salvage Editions is a collaboration between Verso Books and the journal Salvage. Edited by the Salvage Collective, some of the books extend and develop arguments initially published in Salvage, others are entirely new. As with all Salvage's publishing, Salvage Editions intervenes in the key theoretical and political questions thrown up by our moment in ways both politically incisive and stylistically ambitious and engaged. The Salvage Collective believes that radical writing should also strive for beauty.

Since 2015, Salvage has been publishing essays, poetry, fiction and visual art in its print issues. Over the years and issues, a cluster of concerns has emerged as core to Salvage's project, including the global political economy; modern political subjectivity; the social industries; sexuality, gender, race and identity; and eco-socialism. In 2020, along with this book series with Verso, the Salvage Collective also began a live online events series in collaboration with Haymarket Books; Salvage Live.

"Salvage is the most exciting journal to appear on the anglophone left over the past decade: avant-garde Marxism with no illusions, perfectly pitched to our dismal times."
– Andreas Malm, author of How to Blow Up a Pipeline

"Salvage is doubtless the most beautiful and exciting journal I have seen in years. I knew of its excellent reputation, but it exceeds my expectations. I am very happy and proud of belonging to the list of its contributors."
– Enzo Traverso, author of Left-Wing Melancholia
