Upping The Anti #21 Journal of Theory and Action

5.5"x8.5", 174p, perfect-bound soft cover


Says the publisher: We publish theoretical and critical articles, interviews, and roundtables. Upping the Anti also includes a book review section where activists assess new writing on the Left. “Upping the Anti” refers to our interest in assessing the interwoven tendencies that define the politics of today’s radical left: anti-capitalism, anti-oppression, and anti-imperialism. Although inexact in their proclamations, these positions point toward a radical politics outside of the “party building” exercises of the sectarian left and the dead-end of social democracy. We are interested in stories that reflect these concerns. We publish pieces that actively engage with and intervene in contemporary movement debates. The journal is aimed at people who already define themselves as activists or revolutionaries. Our primary goal is to elaborate and clarify the political strengths and weaknesses of the contemporary politics of anti-capitalism, anti-oppression, and anti-imperialism. We avoid specialist language and academic jargon. We will not publish your school paper.
