About Haymarket Books
Haymarket Books is a radical, independent, nonprofit book publisher based in Chicago.
Our mission is to publish books that contribute to struggles for social and economic justice,
as a vibrant and organic part of social movements and the education and development of a
critical, engaged, international left. Since our founding in 2001, we’ve published more than
five hundred titles. Our authors include Arundhati Roy, Rebecca Solnit, Angela Y. Davis,
Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Amy Goodman, Wallace Shawn, Mike Davis, Winona
LaDuke, Dave Zirin, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.

“Books can be the sparks for revolution. I am so grateful for all Haymarket Books has
done for the past fifteen years to fuel the subterranean fire of protest. They are my go-to
publisher for radical politics and the ideas we need for our struggles.” —Tom Morello

“Haymarket has always led with the notion that ideas sell books, not gimmicks, empty
platitudes, or mainstream marketing hooks. Bringing grassroots organizing to ground-up
publishing, its inimitable staff carries the passion and creativity required to set its authors’
words in motion. In an era of right-wing racism and neoliberal conformity, Haymarket is
a critical platform promoting ideas for mass mobilization and community action.”
—Remi Kanazi, poet and Haymarket author

“Haymarket’s books are vital: they provoke the mindset shifts necessary to fuel challenges
to dominant systems. I’m so grateful that Haymarket exists, because I think that without
it, a lot of really crucial books just wouldn’t be published. In general, publishers don’t like
to take risks. Haymarket, on the other hand, realizes that taking risks is at the core of
doing transformative work. Congratulations on your fifteenth anniversary! The world is
a better place with you all in it.”
—Maya Schenwar, Truthout editor in chief and Haymarket author

The Brother You Choose
Panthers, Politics, and Revolution
Susie Elaine Day
Introduction by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Former Black Panthers Paul Coates and Ed-

die Conway discuss their lives, politics, and
the friendship that helped Eddie survive de-
cades in prison.

In 1971, Eddie Conway, lieutenant of secu-

rity for the Baltimore chapter of the Black
Panther Party, was convicted of murdering a
police officer and sentenced to life, plus thirty years behind bars. For over for-
ty-three years, as he raised a family and started a business, Paul visited Eddie
in prison, often taking his kids with him. He and Eddie shared their lives and
worked together on dozens of legal campaigns in hopes of gaining Eddie’s re-
lease. Paul’s founding of The Black Classic Press in 1978 was originally a way
to get books to Eddie in prison. When, in 2014, Eddie finally walked free onto
the streets of Baltimore, Paul Coates was there to greet him. Today, these two
men remain rock-solid comrades and friends﹘each the other’s chosen brother.
This book is a record of their lives and their relationship, told in their own
voices. Paul and Eddie talk about their individual stories, their work, their poli-
tics, and their immeasurable bond.

SUSIE ELAINE DAY began listening to people in prison at the DC jail, where she
interviewed four women charged with the 1985 bombing of the US Capitol.

TA-NEHISI COATES is the author of multiple bestselling books including Between

The World And Me, which won the National Book Award in 2015.

The Tragedy of
American Science
From Truman to Trump
Clifford D. Conner

A compelling and timely account of the cor-

ruption, corporatization, and militarization
of science in the United States.

Despite a facade of brilliant technological ad-

vances, American science has led humanity
to the brink of interrelated disasters. In The
Tragedy of American Science, historian of sci-
ence Clifford D. Conner describes the dual processes by which this history has
unfolded since the Second World War, addressing the corporatization and the
militarization of science in the US. First, he examines the role of private profit
considerations in determining the direction of scientific inquiry and the ways
those considerations have dangerously undermined the integrity of sciences im-
pacting food, water, air, medicine, and the climate. Second, Conner explores the
relationship between scientific industries and the US military, discussing the in-
numerable financial and human scientific resources that have been diverted from
other critical areas in order to further military aggrandizement and development.
The first comprehensive critique of the corporatization and militariza-
tion of American science from World War II to the present day, The Tragedy
of American Science deals specifically with a number of themes, including: the
Cold War Nazification of American rocket science and biochemical weapons
production; an explanation of “weaponized Keynesianism;” a review of the ideo-
logical context that has fostered the corruption of American science; a critique
of American exceptionalism with a focus on its relationship to militarism; and
a case for an alternative to our current science-for-profit system.

CLIFFORD D. CONNER is a historian of science at the School of Professional

Studies, CUNY Graduate Center and the author of A People’s History of Science.

Dying for an iPhone
Apple, Foxconn, and
the Lives of China’s Workers
Jenny Chan, Ngai Pun, and Mark Selden

A harrowing look at the lives and struggles

of a new generation of Chinese workers con-
fronting the Apple-Foxconn empire and the
Chinese state.

Suicides, excessive overtime, and hostility and

violence on the factory floor in China. Draw-
ing on vivid testimonies from rural migrant
workers, student interns, managers, and trade union staff, Dying for an iPhone is
a devastating expose of two of the world’s most powerful companies: Foxconn
and Apple.
As the leading manufacturer of iPhones, iPads, and Kindles, and employ-
ing one million workers in China alone, Taiwanese-invested Foxconn’s drive to
dominate global electronics manufacturing has aligned perfectly with China’s
goal of becoming the world leader in technology. This book reveals the human
cost of that ambition and what our demands for the newest and best technology
means for our workers.
Foxconn workers have repeatedly demonstrated their power to strike and
key nodes of transnational production, challenge management and the Chinese
state, and confront global tech behemoths. Dying for an iPhone allows us to
assess the impact of global capitalism’s deepening worker crisis.

JENNY CHAN is an assistant professor of sociology and China studies in the De-
partment of Applied Social Sciences at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

PUN NGAI is an assistant professor in social science at the Hong Kong Universi-
ty of Science and Technology. She is coeditor of Remaking Citizenship in Hong
Kong: Community, Nation, and the Global City.

MARK SELDEN is the author or editor of more than thirty books, including Chi-
nese Society: Change Conflict and Resistance.

Stardust to Stardust
Reflections on Living and Dying
Erik Olin Wright

One of the twenty-first century’s most bril-

liant sociologists confronts his own mortality.

“Erik Olin Wright was an extraordinarily

kind mentor to his students, including me.
But what stood out as he faced the end of his
life was his courage and insight as he turned
his analytical mind to himself and his own
relationship to dying. The result is a deeply
life-affirming take on death.”
—Elizabeth Wrigley-Field, Assistant Professor of Sociology,
University of Minnesota

Erik Olin Wright, one of the most important sociologists of his time, takes us
along on his intimate and brave journey toward death, and asks the big ques-
tions about human mortality.
Human life is a wild, extraordinary phenomenon: elements are brewed in
the center of stars and exploding supernova, spewed across the universe; they
eventually clumped into a minor planet around a modest star; then after some
billions of years this “stardust” became complex molecules with self-replicating
capacities that we call life. More billions of years pass and these self-replicating
molecules join together into more complex forms, evolve into organisms which
gain awareness and then consciousness, and finally, eventually, consciousness
of their consciousness. Stardust turned into conscious living matter aware of
its own existence. And with that comes consciousness of mortality That I, as a
conscious being will cease to exist pales in significance to the fact that I exist at
all. I don’t find that this robs my existence of meaning; it’s what makes infusing
life with meaning possible.

ERIK OLIN WRIGHT (1947–2019) was Vilas Distinguished Professor of Sociolo-

gy at the University of Wisconsin. He authored many books.

vate-sector, unionized employer in the United States? And, at what cost to its

A People’s Guide to Capitalism
Hadas Thier

Economists regularly promote capitalism as the great-

est system ever to grace the planet. With the same
breath, they implore us to leave the job of understand-
ing the magical powers of the market to the “experts.”
Despite the efforts of these mainstream commen-
tators to convince us otherwise, many of us have be-
gun to question why the system has produced such vast
inequality and wanton disregard for its own environ-
mental destruction. This book offers answers to exactly
these questions on their own terms: in the form of a radical economic theory.

HADAS THIER is an activist, writer, and socialist, and in her spare time, an ama-
teur paleontologist (aka mom to a toddler).

breathing humans who make their own history. Commentary on the images
is provided by leading scholars Gilbert Achcar, Enzo Traverso, Janette Habel,

a bridge between the studies of the BPP during its organizational existence and
studies of presentday Black activism, allowing today’s readers and organizers to

A Brief History
of Commercial Capitalism
Jairus Banaji

While the mills and factories of 18th and 19th century

Britain tend to evoke the rise of modern-day capital-
ism in the popular imagination, Jairus Banaji adopts a
broader historical perspective. Here, we learn of earlier
stages of capitalist globalization through a rich his-
torical framework which includes accounts of Mus-
lim merchants in eighth-century Guangzhou, China,
and the battles between Venetian, Genoese, and Jewish traders for commercial
dominance of Constantinople, now Istanbul. This framework, argues Banaji,
has set the scene for modes of labor and production that have come to shape
modern economic and social relations.

The Dialectics of Art
John Molyneux

In this insightful look at renaissance Italy and the

Dutch Republic to Andy Warhol and leading contem-
porary figures, John Molyneux sets out to answer the
question: what is art?
His answer places artistic production within
broader social relations, with the masterpieces Moly-
neux analyzes seen as exemplifying a unique field of
creative human labor. This comes to be regarded as “art”
alongside and in opposition to the alienation and com-
modification brought about by capitalism.
Always existing in tension with the prevailing order, art has an inherent
political import, and points toward a different possible future.

The Austrian Revolution

Otto Bauer,
Edited by Walter Baier and Eric Canepa

Europe lies in the ruins of war, and the Russian Rev-

olution seems to herald a new world. The vast Aus-
tro-Hungarian Empire fragments and falls. Nation-
alists fight for self-determination. Liberals call for
parliamentary republics. Communists and socialists
lead mass struggles for workers’ democracies. “Red Vi-
enna” seemed to be building a new, egalitarian society.
As leader of the Austrian Social Democratic
Workers’ Party, Otto Bauer was uniquely placed to chronicle these events. The
overarching concerns of his magisterial work—reform or revolution, state pow-
er, and political strategy—give it a contemporary relevance almost one hundred
years after its first publication.

OTTO BAUER was a leading figure of the Austrian Social Democratic Workers’ Party.

The capitalist crisis of the twenty-first century has been met by a resurgence of interest
in critical Marxist theory. Yet the publishing institutions committed to Marxism have
contracted markedly since the high point of the 1970s. The Historical Materialism Book
Series is dedicated to addressing this situation by making available important works of
Marxist theory. The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical contributions—
in the form of original monographs, translated texts, and reprints of classics—as the basis
for vigorous intellectual debate and exchange on the left.
