HAYMARKET BOOKS FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER

New: Lucy Parsons: An American Revolutionary 

by Carolyn Ashbaugh
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Lucy-Parsons)
Described by the Chicago Police as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters,” Lucy Parsons remains one of the most fascinating figures in US history.  As a mixed-race woman in Texas, likely born enslaved, Parsons became one of the most militant leaders in the radical labor movement at the turn of the century. 

“LUCY PARSON’S LIFE expressed the anger of the unemployed workers, women, and minorities against oppression and is exemplary of radicals’ efforts to organize the working class for social change”
—From the Preface

“Packing an enormous emotional punch, Elizabeth Laird brings us a topical book about Lebanon that will do more for a child’s understanding of war than a news report ever could, yet it is neither frightening nor distressing. Smart, punchy writing and full empathy for the child’s perspective. Highly recommended.
—Jill Murphy, The Bookbag

(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Kivalina)

“This story is a tragedy, and not just because of what’s happening to the people of Kivalina. It’s a tragedy because it’s unnecessary, the product, as the author shows, of calculation, deception, manipulation, and greed in some of the biggest and richest companies on earth.”
—Bill McKibben, author Earth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
 
(http://www.haymarketbooks.org/pb/Too-Many-People)
“This excellent book is steadfast in its refutations of the flabby, misogynist and sometimes racist thinking that population growth catastrophists use to peddle their claims. It’s just the thing to send populationists scurrying back to their bunkers.”
—Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved

BDS: BOYCOTT, DISINVESTMENT, SANCTIONS

Omar Barghouti, founding member of Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, to Release New Book

BDS: Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions

The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights 

by Omar Barghouti (available for interview)

Book Release at the London Review Bookshop Monday, March 7th at 7:00 pm, 14 Bury Place, London, WC1A 2JL.

“This is a book about the political actions necessary to hinder and finally to stop the Israeli state machine which is operating every day to eliminate the Palestinian people. It is like an engineer’s report, not a sermon. Read it, decide and then act.” —John Berger

“Barghouti’s lucid and morally compelling book is perfectly timed to make a major contribution to this urgently needed global campaign for justice, freedom and peace.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate

“Essential reading for all who care about justice and the plight of an oppressed people.” —Ken Loach

INTERNATIONAL BOYCOTT divestment, and sanctions (BDS) efforts helped topple South Africa’s brutal apartheid regime. In this urgent book, Omar Barghouti makes the case for a rights-based BDS campaign to stop Israel’s rapacious occupation, colonization, and apartheid against the Palestinian people. This considered, convincing collection contributes to the growing debate on Israel’s violations of international law and points the way forward to a united global civil society movement for freedom, justice, self determination, and equality for all.

OMAR BARGHOUTI is an independent Palestinian commentator and human rights activist. He is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from Columbia University, and a master’s degree in philosophy (ethics) from Tel Aviv University.

Barghouti is AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEW in London March 4-7, and by phone or email prior. To request, contact Sarah Macaraeg, sarah@haymarketbooks.org

Praise for Omar Barghouti and Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights:

“I warmly welcome the publication of Omar Barghouti’s book. It is timely and responsibly written by a man who will understand that creative and relentless nonviolence is the only way out of the dire situation in which Palestine, and our entire world for that matter, finds itself.” —Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, M.M., Former president of the UN General Assembly

“No one has done more to build the intellectual, legal and moral case for BDS than Omar Barghouti. The global Palestinian solidarity movement has been transformed and is on the cusp of major new breakthroughs.” —Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo

“I have been to Palestine where I’ve witnessed the racially segregated housing and the humiliation of Palestinians at military roadblocks. I can’t help but remember the conditions we experienced in South Africa under apartheid. We could not have achieved our freedom without the help of people around the world using the nonviolent means of boycotts and divestment to compel governments and institutions to withdraw their support for the apartheid regime. Omar Barghouti’s lucid and morally compelling book is perfectly timed to make a major contribution to this urgently needed global campaign for justice, freedom and peace.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate

“Once again Omar Barghouti delivers a conceptually lucid argument for the BDS movement that is difficult to refute. He offers a principled position accompanied by nuanced and thorough analyses, and though one may not agree with all of his claims, one is fully persuaded by the passionate clarity of his appeal. Barghouti reminds us what public responsibility entails, and we are lucky to have his relentless and intelligent analysis and argument. There is no more comprehensive and persuasive case than his for boycott, divestment, and sanctions to end the Israeli occupation and establish the ethical claim of Palestinian rights.” —Judith Butler, Co-director of the Program of Critical Theory at the University of California at Berkeley

“The ABC for internationalist support for Palestine is BDS. And the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against Israeli cruelty and injustice is gaining in significance and scope. Like the anti-apartheid movement against racist South Africa, BDS is helping to make a tremendous difference in what has been a most difficult struggle for human rights and the right of a colonized and dispossessed people to national self-determination. This inspiring book is a weapon in a noble struggle in which all right thinking people can play a part.” —Ronne Kasrils, former South African government minister
