AK Press: Defenders of Print

Alternative Media

AK Press is a book publisher and distributor out of Oakland, California, whose stated aim is, “Supplying radical words and images to as many people as possible.” ‘Radical’, in the AK sense, variously includes guides to home-brewing, essays on feminist porn, the translated works of French and Latin American revolutionaries, manifestos for queer liberation, and more than a few books explaining the inner workings of late capitalism. They’re anarchists, you see, and anarchists are prolific publishers.

I have been reading the AK Press Review since the late 80s. During the lonely and repressive Reagan-Bush era, it was one of the few reliable sources of good information.
