The People We Can Be: Or How To Be 500 Better Off, Build A Fairer Society And A Better Planet
- Paperback - Luath Press
The world we live in is changing. Never have humans known so much, been so healthy or so rich. Yet we are threatened by financial crashes, democratic decline, climate change and ill-health. We live in contradictory times. Our public debate doesn't seem to represent these forces. Voters in Scotland and the UK face two referendums. In September 2014 Scots will vote on 'independence' while in 2017 the UK may vote on 'independence' from the European Union. Everyone involved in these arguments accepts there is no such things as 'independence' in the modern world. This book tries to work out how these elections are relevant to our needs.

At the same time, Gil starts to investigate a series of unexplained deaths that bring this crisis of faith into uncomfortable focus.

The Political Aesthetics Of Global Protest: The Arab Spring And Beyond
- Paperback - Edinburgh University Press
A remarkable feature of the protests from the Arab Spring onwards has been the salience of images, songs, videos, humour, satire and dramatic performances. This book explores the central role the aesthetic played in energising the mass mobilisations of young people, the disaffected, the middle classes, the apolitical silent majority, as well as enabling solidarities and alliances among democrats, workers, trade unions, civil rights activists and opposition parties.
The Professor Of Truth
- Paperback - Penguin Books

A People's History Of Scotland
- Paperback - Verso
In September 2014, the people of Scotland will decide whether - after 407 years of British rule - they want to be an independent country. Chris Bambery, a leading figure in the Scottish Independence campaign, seizes the opportunity to delve into the real and oft-forgotten history of Scotland. 'A People's History of Scotland' is a corrective to the usual history of kings and queens, victorious battles and bloody defeats. Rather it tells the story that matters today - the story of freedom fighters, suffragettes, the workers of Red Clydesdale who fought for their rights, and the contemporary struggle for independence. It looks at the struggles for nationhood as well as for a socialist future, while also charting the lives of Scots who changed the world: from the real Macbeth, to the father of modern capitalism, Adam Smith, as well as campaigner Mary Brooksbank.
Presente!: Latin@ Immigrant Voices In The Struggle For Racial Justice
- Paperback - AK Press
'Presente!' transcends the characterisation of immigrants as either criminals or victims by drawing on the first-hand experiences of immigrants and immigrant-led organisations engaged in recent organising struggles. Focusing on Latino and Latina immigrants in the US, and covering the intersections of race, class and immigration, this anthology addresses the misguided notion that undocumented immigrants simply need to legalise their status to eliminate their marginalisation.
