If you’re one of the privileged, staying at home just got a lot easier. Chicago-based publishing house Haymarket Books has just made 10 e-books available at no cost.
“At Haymarket Books, our mission is to publish books for changing the world,” the publishing house said in a statement. “Now more than ever, the need to do just that is at the forefront of our minds. We all deserve to live in a world where we are each cared for, nourished, and sheltered.”
The selection of books is specifically curated to encourage alternative ways of thinking. The offerings include Michael Lowy’s Ecosocialism: A Radical Alternative to Capitalist Catastrophe, a collection of essays that detail the ways in which capitalism is harmful to the planet and outlines a vision with a radical alternative.
If you’re interested in reading about the concept of corporate benevolence, Rob Larson’s book, Bit Tyrants, is also available for download.
And if socialism is a concept you’ve considered, Danny Katch’s Socialism…Seriously is among Haymarket Books’s selection.
