COINTELPRO: The FBI’s Secret War on Political Freedom

Product Description

The operations revealed in the documents cited in this book—many of them photographically reproduced—provide an unprecedented look at the methods used by the FBI, CIA, military intelligence, and other US police agencies.

Despite their authors’ intentions, these documents also record pieces of the history of efforts to build the communist movement in the United States.

“The first book to disclose, in indisputable and chilling words of FBI officials themselves, the two-pronged attack with which the FBI has attempted to discredit and destroy lawful and effective groups working for social justice.” —Ms.


“Another point the book makes clearly: This bipartisan campaign is far from over and the fight to stop it continues.” —The Black Scholar

“The facts and cases in this book are no longer shocking; they should, however, be available to every citizen who cares about freedom.” —Library Journal

“Provides invaluable insights into the bureau’s crassly political attempts to discredit radical political activities (relating to the Socialist Workers party, civil rights organizations, and the anti-Viet-Nam War movement).” —Choice

“What is revealed in this book...so plainly documented, results in a powerful and frightening reading experience.” —KLIATT

 Cuban Revolution' 1961 literacy campaign. Thousands of young volunteers hold up giant pencils.

Art & Culture.

‟Culture is a social phenomenon. Just because of this, language, as the organ of intercourse between men, is its most important instrument. The culture of language itself is the most important condition for the growth of all branches of culture, especially science and art...Yes, culture was the main instrument of class oppression. But it also, and only it, can become the instrument of socialist emancipation.″ —LEON TROTSKY, 1926

Photo: Thousands of young literacy brigade volunteers join December 1961 “rally of the pencils” in Havana, Cuba to celebrate successful completion of year-long campaign to teach 1 million peasants and workers to read and write.

Are They Rich Because They're Smart?

Product Description

Explains the sharpening class inequalities in the United States and the resulting conflicts accelerated by today’s slow-burning world depression. It takes apart the self-serving rationalizations of a growing layer of well-paid professionals that their schooling and “brightness” equip them to “regulate” the lives of working people, who can’t be trusted to know what’s in our own interests.

In the coming battles forced upon us by the capitalist rulers, says Jack Barnes, workers will begin to transform ourselves and our attitudes toward life, work, and each other. Only then will we discover our own worth and learn what we’re capable of becoming.
