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.
This is the year to introduce your favorite radical books to your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and comrades.
We've assembled a guide of some of our books that make great gifts, with suggestions for (just about) anyone on your list.
Below, we offer suggestions for the young person in your life looking for radical inspiration in the struggles of the past, the sports fan cheering on Colin Kaepernick as he continues to kneel for the National Anthem, or the family member or friend who's been asking you what we can do to resist Trump and fight for a better world.

Current Affairs Drive the Mission (and Revenue) at Haymarket Books
Claire Kirch for Publishers Weekly | October 14, 2016
Haymarket Books has always prided itself on being a mission-driven press, rather than one that focuses on the commercial viability of its acquisitions. But the expansion of its list in recent years, including more books about hot-button issues by prominent authors, has dramatically boosted its top line. The publishing and distribution arm of the Chicago-based Center for Economic Research and Social Change, Haymarket is celebrating its 15th anniversary this fall. The company has 12 employees and finished the 2015–2016 fiscal year on August 31 with a 21% increase in revenue compared to the previous year. Fiscal year 2014–2015 was just as noteworthy, with a 25% spike in revenue.
"We're putting out books that speak to the current moment," said publicity director Jim Plank. "Authors are coming to us because they know that we're one of the best places to be if [they] are trying to publish a book about social justice."
