Gabriel Kuhn's Playing as if the World Mattered— Reviews!

"Author Gabriel Kuhn’s Playing As If The World Mattered: An Illustrated History of Activism in Sports is a thoughtful and easy to digest compilation of one-page commentaries with supporting full-color images, tracking examples of activism within the changing influence of the role of sports as integral parts of all societies...

...His 160 pages covers a great deal of ground with example after example of activism threading its way throughout a pantheon of sports, from cycling to something known as radical cheerleading. It is an impressive pulling together of well-known and heretofore generally unknown to the general public, events, and individuals who played roles in the arena of sports activism..." —Russell P. Gantos, The New York Journal of Books

Unlikely Communities: Breaking the Alienation of Incarceration on Truthout


"In Resistance Behind Bars, regular Truthout contributor Victoria Law provides much-needed documentation of collective organizing and the daily struggles inside women's prisons. This second edition includes powerful new sections examining the challenges facing trans, intersex and gender-variant people in prison as well as their acts of resistance...

From friendships to support groups to activist campaigns, women in prison band together in many creative ways to confront the system that aims to divide and isolate them. This excerpt from Resistance Behind Bars delves into some of the community building that happens within prisons.

...When Michigan prisoner Kebby Warner attempted to call her daughter on her fourth birthday, she discovered that the phone number, which she had been calling once a month, was restricted. The reason? Michigan Department of Corrections had started a new phone program with Sprint. Those on a prisoner's telephone list had to pay a minimum of $50 before they could receive a call from their incarcerated loved one." —Victoria Law, excerpt of Resistance Behind Bars on Truthout

Robin Bell's Positive Force: More Than a Witness reviewed in SLUG Magazine


"This DVD is also packed with cool bonus features that look into Positive Force’s involvement with groups like the “We Are Family” senior service advocacy group. It also contains sweet music videos from groups like Chumbawamba’s “Rappaport’s Testament: I Never Gave Up” and Anti-Flag’s “You’ve Got to Die for the Government.” There are a lot of films on the gritty, rock n’ roll–inspired lifestyles of punk rockers, but not nearly enough idealize it. It is punk movements like these that inspire viable alternatives and the possibilities of creating a whole new world. So dig this, and be inspired to create something new..."—Nick Kuzmack, Salt Lake Under Ground Magazine (SLUG)

Dan Berger, author of The Struggle Within interviewed on The Prison Pipeline


Check out Dan Berger, author of The Struggle Within interviewed on KBOO's The Prison Pipeline.

The Struggle Within powerfully demonstrates that the issue of political prisoners is not about individuals but about the deep and enduring bonds of community resistance. Berger’s beautiful synthesis of more than fifty years of people’s history places the prison at the center of contemporary freedom struggles. This book is necessary reading for all who wish to revive a radical tradition in the face of the prison’s coercive attempt at erasure. The Struggle Within is a vital and moving contribution, rooted in the power of collective history.“
—Angela Y. Davis, author and former political prisoner
