Class Power on Zero-Hours

I have a lengthy review of the new AngryWorkers book, Class Power on Zero-Hours, in the June issue of the Brooklyn Rail. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone trying to orient their praxis right now. AW are one of the hardest grinding groups out there, and their website is constantly updated with news and analysis. I'm not sure when they sleep!

In Solidarity

The Gotham Center for New York City History has put together a handy compendium of historical articles around police violence and resistance in NYC, and I am honored to be included.

Needless to say the unfolding rebellion in the USA has my unqualified support. Some of us write historical articles; this movement is writing history. Hope to see you all in the streets.
