"At the height of the fateful year 1968, as the country was well past the edge of civil unrest and the SDS, facing its own split between militant and pacifist factions (thus forming the Weather Underground), the Work-In Committee of the SDS produced this pamphlet on the formation of an alliance between workers and students in the United States much like their French counterparts were doing half a world away." - From back of cover
"Too often, research is the last task activists think of when they engage in a campaign, usually coming only at the point that someone sits down to write a leaflet or a press release and then discovers that the one thing missing is the information required to really condemn the company or other agency being targeted. Being a good activist means knowing and using all available tools - including solid research skills."
"Originally written in 1979, this is an inside account/critique, from the New York Three Black Panther and BLA political prisoner. This is a chapter from a to-be-published compilation of Jalil's prison writings - We Are Our Own Liberators. "
"Ernesto "Che" Guevara is one of the most iconic figures of the 20th Century. Whether regarded as a brutal murderer or a gifted tactician, it is hard to doubt the impact he has had on those on both sides of history.

"War is a Racket is the title of a speech and a booklet by former U.S. Marine Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, one of only 19 people to be twice award the Medal of Honor, in which Butler frankly discusses from his experience as a career military officer how business interests have commercially benefited from warfare. After he retired from the Marine Corps., Gen. Butler made a nationwide tour in the early 1930's giving his speech 'War is a Racket'. The speech was so well received that he wrote a longer version as a small book with the same title published in 1935. Last Word Press is proud to reprint this anti-war book for a modern audience." - From back of cover

"A large collection of short writings on the ever topical, and thorny topic of the Palestinian struggle for self-determination. Originally published from 1988-1995, they are more meditations on the likes of Jewish identity, the role of the Kibbutz, and the need for an overall Israeli-Palestinian insurrection, than commentary on current events."
