The Stop Trump Reading List from Haymarket Books
Our slogan at Haymarket Books is "Books for Changing the World." But books alone can't change the world; ideas become a material force only through the people who organize and fight for change.
In a sense our entire catalog is made up of "books to stop Trump and the grotesque system that spawned him;" we publish books of radical politics, theory, and history intended to arm those looking to understand the world in order to change it.
In that spirit, we've put together this short list for all of you who are looking for resources to understand Trump's election, how we got to this point, and how we can organize to fight for a better world:
