'The definitive book for our times on what makes strategic ignorance so "strategic" in the hands of the powerful'
Steve Fuller, author of Post-Truth
For April we're delighted to be publishing this fascinating account of deliberate ignorance and the way it is used to keep those at the top in power. Why do so many figures at the top still get away with it when disasters on their watch damage so many people’s lives? Does the idea that knowledge is power still apply in today’s post-truth world?

GET TICKETS FOR OUR LATEST EVENT
Join Gargi and amazing guests Cooperation Town, Amardeep Singh Dhillon and Melek Erdal on 15th April.
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.
We run two events monthly where we're joined by fantastic guest speakers. You can catch up with these on Youtube, including our latest dicussion with the AngryWorkers collective and Sarah Jaffe in-conversation with Ashok Kumar about Class Power on Zero Hours which you can view here.
The next event in our popular Who's Afraid of Anticapitalism series will be on 15th April where our host Gargi will be joined by Cooperation Town, Amardeep Singh Dhillon and Melek Erdal. Grab your ticket soon!
If you’re a member you can order any of the books from previous months. Just make sure you’re signed into the website with your email address and password and every book is available to purchase.
We also have special editions of selected titles available in hardback. These special gift editions help us raise money for our political education projects.
