Download PDF Burn It Down! by Breanne Fahs and published by Verso Books. This book was released on 2020-03-24 with total page 528 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The most comprehensive collection of feminist manifestos, chronicling our rage and dreams from the nineteenth century to today In this landmark collection spanning three centuries and four waves of feminist activism and writing, Burn It Down! is a testament to what is possible when women are driven to the edge. The manifesto—raging and wanting, quarreling and provoking—has always played a central role in feminism, and it’s the angry, brash feminism we need now. Collecting over seventy-five manifestos from around the world, Burn It Down! is a rallying cry and a call to action. Among this confrontational sisterhood, you’ll find • “Dyke Manifesto” by the Lesbian Avengers • “The Ax Tampax Poem Feministo” by the Bloodsisters Project • “The Manifesto of Apocalyptic Witchcraft” by Peter Grey • “Simone de Beauvoir’s pro-abortion Manifesto of the 343 • “Double Jeopardy: To Be Black and Female” by Frances M. Beal • “The Futurist Manifesto of Lust” by Valentine de Saint-Point • “Zapatista Women’s Revolutionary Laws” • “Riot Grrrl Manifesto” by Bikini Kill • “Anarchy and the Sex Question” by Emma Goldman Breanne Fahs argues that we need manifestos in all their urgent rawness—their insistence that we have to act now, that we must face this, that the bleeding edge of rage and defiance ignites new and revolutionary possibilities is where new ideas are born.

Read the first chapter of Holly Bourne’s next book, How Hard Can Love Be? – EXCLUSIVE to the ebook. "An involving look at feminism, friendship and the secrets we hide even from those who know us best." - The Observer "An epic and unique release this summer that I plead you all to pick up! This novel has a distinct British feel with moments mixed with laughter, tainted with tears and bound with love. Holly Bourne has created a beautiful tale." - Paper Trail YA "This is not a novel about a condition: Evie’s condition is that of being a contemporary young woman, and through her guerrilla feminist group with new soulmates Lottie and Amber (who will each get a novel to themselves shortly) she learns new pathways through life that all her peers can follow.” - The Observer “This is quite easily Bourne's best novel yet. Might have been a tricky subject matter, but it was funny and heartbreaking and thought-provoking.” - An Awful Lot of Reading “I love the Spinsters Club, and I so want my own!

Download PDF The Communist Manifesto by Friedrich Engels and published by Broadview Press. This book was released on 2004-08-30 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: L.M. Findlay’s elegant new translation is a work of textual and historical scholarship. Few books have had as much of an impact on modern history as The Communist Manifesto. Since it was first published in 1848, it has become the rallying cry for revolutionary movements around the world. This new Broadview edition draws on the 1888 Samuel Moore translation supervised by Engels—the standard English version in Marxist discourse—and on the original Helen Macfarlane translation into English of 1850. Throughout, Findlay draws on a variety of disciplines and maintains a broad-ranging perspective. Among the appendices are Engels’ “Draft of a Communist Confession of Faith,” correspondence and journalism of Marx and Engels, ten illustrations, and eight additional influential political manifestos from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Download PDF The Architect as Worker by Peggy Deamer and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2015-07-30 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Directly confronting the nature of contemporary architectural work, this book is the first to address a void at the heart of architectural discourse and thinking. For too long, architects have avoided questioning how the central aspects of architectural “practice” (professionalism, profit, technology, design, craft, and building) combine to characterize the work performed in the architectural office. Nor has there been a deeper evaluation of the unspoken and historically-determined myths that assign cultural, symbolic, and economic value to architectural labor. The Architect as Worker presents a range of essays exploring the issues central to architectural labor. These include questions about the nature of design work; immaterial and creative labor and how it gets categorized, spatialized, and monetized within architecture; the connection between parametrics and BIM and labor; theories of architectural work; architectural design as a cultural and economic condition; entrepreneurialism; and the possibility of ethical and rewarding architectural practice. The book is a call-to-arms, and its ultimate goal is to change the practice of architecture. It will strike a chord with architects, who will recognize the struggle of their profession; with students trying to understand the connections between work, value, and creative pleasure; and with academics and cultural theorists seeking to understand what grounds the discipline.
Download PDF The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and published by Verso Books. This book was released on 2012-04-04 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the two decades following the fall of the Berlin Wall, global capitalism became entrenched in its modern, neoliberal form. Its triumph was so complete that the word “capitalism” itself fell out of use in the absence of credible political alternatives. But with the outbreak of financial crisis and global recession in the twenty-first century, capitalism is once again up for discussion. The status quo can no longer be taken for granted. As Eric Hobsbawm argues in his acute and elegant introduction to this modern edition, in such times The Communist Manifesto emerges as a work of great prescience and power despite being written over a century and a half ago. He highlights Marx and Engels’s enduring insights into the capitalist system: its devastating impact on all aspects of human existence; its susceptibility to enormous convulsions and crises; and its fundamental weakness.

Download PDF Marxism in Dark Times by Sobhanlal Datta Gupta and published by Anthem Press. This book was released on 2013-10-15 with total page 236 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Offering an alternative exploration of the subject, ‘Marxism in Dark Times’ anchors its investigation of Marxism in the conceptual spheres of humanism, democracy and pluralism. Its essays question the stereotyped, positivist notion of the theory as practised by the exponents of official Marxism, highlight the legacy of the suppressed voices in the Marxist tradition, and provide new insights into reading Marxism in the twenty-first century—affording new perspectives on Antonio Gramsci, Rosa Luxemburg, Nikolai Bukharin, David Ryazanov and the Frankfurt School. They seek to review the phenomenon of ‘Perestroika,’ explore the new historiography on Comintern, and examine the relation between Marxism and postmodernism. With its wide-ranging provision of materials—some translated here into English from German and Russian for the first time—this collection offers a pioneering English assessment of some of the most debatable issues in contemporary Marxism.
