The Stop Trump Reading List from Haymarket Books

img_1215-31ef9b396309befe2369d0b2f6fc71da

In a sense the entire Haymarket books catalog is made up of “books to stop Trump and the grotesque system that spawned him;” we publish books of radical politics, theory, and history intended to arm those looking to understand the world in order to change it.

In that spirit, Haymarket books has put together this short list for all of you who are looking for resources to understand Trump’s election, how we got to this point, and how we can organize to fight for a better world:
