Comrades, it is with deep gratitude and excitement that I wish to announce scott crow‘s new book:

Emergency Hearts, Molotov Dreams is a selected collection of interviews, presentations and conversations that crow has given over the last five years covering a variety of topics such as anarchy, cooperatives, police brutality, prisons, animal liberation, environmental justice, surveillance and political movements. Many of the interviews have been expanded, remixed and edited from their original publications to expand on the ideas, praxis and histories.

This book is from a new radical publishing cooperative GTK Press in Cleveland, OH, which is part of the longstanding bookstore called Guide To Kulchur.

Copies can be ordered directly from GTK Press, or picked up at one’s local alternative bookseller.

Here is my review of the text, featured prominently on the cover insert:

“Through these illuminating interviews, crow shares his critically valuable thoughts on State oppression, class inequality, social exclusion, and the destruction of the biosphere.  He hails advancing dual power, resistance culture, direct action, anti-authoritarian internationalism, and inter-species solidarity together with courage and joy.”
