              The Anarchist Cookbook (PDF ebook)

              By McHenry, Keith; Bufe, Chaz; Introduction by Chris, Hedges

              From the cofounder of Food Not Bombs, an action-oriented guide to anarchism, social change, and vegan cooking Unlike the original Anarchist Cookbook , which contained instructions for the manufacture of explosives, this version is both a cookbook in the literal sense and also a c...ookbook of recipes for social and political change. The coffee-table--sized book is divided into three sections: a theoretical section explaining what anarchism is and what it isn't; information on organizational principles and tactics for social and political change; and finally, numerous tasty vegan recipes from one of the cofounders of the international Food Not Bombs movement.

              Wages of Rebellion

              Wages of Rebellion (Hardback)

              By Hedges, Chris

              Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy movement. Wages of Rebellion investigates what social and psychological factors cause r...evolution, rebellion, and resistance. Chris Hedges, who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his books Empire of Illusion and Death of the Liberal Class, has turned his attention to the triggers of revolt. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians, and literary figures he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges' message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of environmental destruction and wealth polarization. Focusing on the stories of rebels from around the world and throughout history, Hedges investigates what it takes to be a rebel in modern times. Utilizing the work of Reinhold Niebuhr, Hedges describes the motivation that guides the actions of rebels as sublime madness -- the state of passion that causes the rebel to engage in an unavailing fight against overwhelmingly powerful and oppressive forces. For Hedges, resistance is carried out not for its success, but as a moral imperative that affirms life. Those who rise up against the odds will be those endowed with this sublime madness. From South African activists who dedicated their lives to ending apartheid, to contemporary anti-fracking protests in Alberta, Canada, to whistleblowers in pursuit of transparency, Wages of Rebellion shows the cost of a life committed to speaking the truth and demanding justice. Hedges has penned an indispensable guide to rebellion.
