In the first in a series of articles commemorating the centenary of the Russian Revolution, the New York Times tremulously wondered whether today’s economic anxieties might lead to a resurgence of interest in communism. We at Haymarket Books have often wondered this ourselves, but for altogether different reasons than the good folks at the Times.
On January 20, 2017, over 1,000 people joined Haymarket Books, Jacobin, and Verso Books in Washington, D.C. for "The Anti-Inauguration."
With powerful speeches from Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Naomi Klein, Jeremy Scahill, Anand Gopal, and Owen Jones, the event was a counterpoint to Donald Trump's (poorly attended) inauguration. It also served as a counter-inauguration for the resistance we need in the era of Trump — and a reminder of the kind of future worth fighting for.
Now, Haymarket Books is pleased to offer The Anti-Inauguration as a FREE e-book
