A series of pamphlets including short essays from contemporary radical leftist authors defining concepts such as power, class, etc.

About this project

The Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS) wants to publish a series of pamphlets--some two to three dozen over time--exploring commonly used terms, in the interests of developing a common "lexicon" among those within the radical Left. Inspired by the emerging occupy movement, but not exclusive to it, the IAS hopes that these pamphlets will be widely distributed and accessible to people who are newly approaching "politics from below." Each pamphlet will include a short essay by a contemporary radical leftist author defining concepts such as capitalism, white supremacy, worker self-management, patriarchy, the state, class, solidarity, and many others.

The first four in the IAS Lexicon series (because they are ready to go!), and the focus of this $2,400 Kickstarter campaign, are:

"Power" by Todd May
"Colonialism" by Maia Ramnath
"Anarchism" by Cindy Milstein
"Gender" by Jamie Heckert

More terms and thus pamphlets are in the works!
