What's new from LBC - Spring 2013

Alternative Media

Welcome to the start of 2013. As many of you probably know the biggest anarchist event in the Bay Area is the 8 days of anarchy which featured books, a conference, a memorial, a picnic, and some celebration (congrats to RCA/Hot Mess)! There is so much work associated with the 8 days that it's hard to say the year properly begins for us until we drop the last guest at the airport. It is only then that we can consider getting back to work on 2013. So here we are, ready to begin or to at least announce what we have been up to the last three months. We have three new titles from our publishing endeavor, three new pocket books from Elephant Editions, a new issue of The Anvil (#4), and a brand new LBC Catalog (our first glossy!).

Recent LBC Books titles

Defacing the Currency

It's been 16 long years since Bob Black's last book. This is not because Bob has stopped writing, or even that the audience for his work has disappeared. Quite the opposite. It's been 16 years since Anarchy After Leftism because for anarchy (beyond the left) to succeed it has had to do it without Bob Black. Bob required a time out for bad behavior and is now back with a withering critique of Noam Chomsky and clear writing about anarchism and law. The book is introduced by Aragorn! and Diogenes Laertius. Defacing the Currency by Bob Black

Between Predicates, War

Subtitled On Contemporary Struggle this book is an essay hidden behind a collection of theses. It asks a big question "What does it mean to live" and leaves the reader with the answer they are hoping for. Queue dramatic music and thunderous applause about our insurrectionary future. This a pretty little book that says what we all know...

When something really happens, having spaces, known and lesser known, across the metropolitan network is a vital contribution... Our idle hands will be a virtue and our laborious hands will be free to work with care and play, pleasure and cruelty—to build and destroy.

Between Predicates, War by The Institute For Experimental Freedom

Stirner's Critics

Max Stirner’s original published critics were all contem-poraries writing from within the radical literary, philosophi-cal and political milieu of Vormärz Germany... three criticisms were published soon enough following the original issuance of his text for Stirner to respond in Wigand’s Vierteljahrschriftin 1845, under the title of “Recensenten Stirner’s” (“Stirner’s Critics”). This is the first translation of this response to critics into English. This is a must read for those interested in the ideas of Egoism. Stirner's Critics by Max Stirner, Introduction by Jason McQuinn, Translation by Wolf Landstriecher

Elephant Editions

If you haven't heard we are in the process of bringing as much of the Elephant Editions catalog into print in North America. In 2012 we put into print a series of micro-books including Simon Radowitzky and the People's Justice, the poverty feminism, the anarchist tension, the unwanted children of Capital, nights of rage, locked up, and incognito. In 2013 we are going to attempt to put the pocketbooks back into print. We begin with three pocketbooks that introduce the incredible artwork of 1882.

  1. Anarchism & Violence (Severino Di Giovanni in Argentina 1923 - 1931)
  2. Feral Revolution - by Feral Faun
  3. Let's Destroy Work, Let's Destroy the Economy

"Social" "Networking"

Not that we are into such things... but the outside world exists. They might even be interested in teh anarchies! Let's help them out. Some of our books are being reviewed and talked about. Join the conversation! Good Reads

We also do Facebook & Twitter but we aren't going steady or anything. P.S. We are going to start updating WNLBC every month PPS There are additional blogs happening at the LBC Blog if you are into reading existential angst about capitalism and ambivalence about this project.
