Audio Book (August 2022)

Do you like books, but can’t figure out how to read while cleaning the house, raking leaves, working in the garage, or driving in rush-hour traffic?  That’s what audiobooks are for!

Apparently there is one for Gang Politics.

 

 

 

Enforcing Ecocide (July 2022)

I’ve written the foreword to a new collection, Enforcing Ecocide: Power, Policing & Planetary Militarization, edited by Alexander Dunlap and Andrea Brock.

Book cover

Here’s a bit from the foreword:

Enforcing Ecocide collects evidence from around the world to illustrate the fundamental connections between state violence, capitalist accumulation, and environmental destruction. It thus helps bring into focus the precise nature of the problem we are facing. It is now far too late to prevent catastrophic climate change; any realistic strategy must turn its energies to mitigation and adaptation. The state will attempt to adapt via increased militarism and authoritarianism, because the first imperative of state power is to preserve state power. In our present circumstances, that demand may be at odds with the survival of humanity.

 

East Coast Tour (July 2022)

I’m going to be on the East Coast in July to promote my new book, Gang Politics. The book collects three essays on the politicization and policing of gangs, especially during the 1960s, the 1990s, and today.

Update: Philly Event (7/3) is now at 7pm.

 

Gang Politics Interview (June 2022)

I had a really good discussion with the host of Coffee with Comrades.  We cover the basics of my new book, Gang Politics, and go more deeply into questions about the ethics of violence.  Despite the casual tone, I could tell that they had thought very carefully about the book and the ideas in it.  The result is more of a discussion, with actual give and take, and less of a standard interview.  I think it is worth a listen.
