Due to the fact that the UK has left the EU, and because the deal that was made is not clearly defined, we're experiencing some problems with post to the EU. There are various extra costs, including new VAT charges. Please be aware that if you are an EU-based subscriber, you may have to pay extra charges to receive your book. We're really sorry. This is a massive problem for many UK-based small organisations such as ourselves. We are working hard to figure out what the charges are so that we can include these in the price we charge you, but because each country is different this is taking a lot of time. We hope that you will bear with us.
For May we are delighted to publish this classic by American ecologist Murray Bookchin. The theme of Bookchin's grand narrative is straightforward: environmental, economic and political devastation are born at the moment that human societies begin to organize themselves hierarchically. The lesson to be learned is that our nightmare will continue until hierarchy is dissolved and human beings develop more sane, sustainable and egalitarian social structures.
Remember if you sign up in May, you get a free copy of Rosa Luxemburg's book along with the first book in your chosen subscription.
