The Get Political series is a response to the unconvincing and desperate rhetoric from politicians on both sides of the Atlantic. As the crisis of neoliberalism develops, the established order becomes ever more helpless to improve things.These books are for people who want to learn about and construct real alternatives to unrestrained capitalism and the selfish individualism it encourages. The series invites a return to classic revolutionary thinkers and texts, which have inspired and continue to inspire radicals worldwide. The selection is consciously eclectic, covering postcolonial theory, history and theatre as well as what would normally be termed ‘politics’. However, the works are unified by rejections of the status quo so convincing that they inspire not only agreement, but further reading and meaningful political action.
