    Captain Vietnam: Bestower of Tumors

    Currently reading Stalin Internet Archive because i'm salty that garbage (publication's name redacted) and (org's name redacted) takes have been getting the spotlight the past couple days despite being reactionary trash.

    Does anyone have good recommendations for books on the Zapatista movement in Mexico? I started reading a book that was the diary entries of Subcomandante Marcos, but gave absolutely no context for what was going on at the time of his writing.

    There is no single book that gives a comprehensive view, unfortunately. There is a Zapitista Reader which is a collection of articles including some by Naomi Klein. That is closest. Otherwise every book typically looks at a singular aspect of the struggle: the indigeneity, the rhetoric (like Marcos' writings), writings about the struggle by other revolutionaries, etc.

    I feel like this book would be a good way to kickstart a discussion given that it's a graphic novel/easy read, but covers important material. Anyone in?

    Grabbed this at the library last week and about halfway through now. Feels weird to say that I’m enjoying it given the content, but it’s incredibly captivating. Definitely going to be recommending this to others.

    Anyone have any recommendations on books about capitalism and the negative consequences. Something that dives into race, exploitation, etc.

    So I just finished reading Coate's "Between The World and Me", any other authors that have a similar prose or recommended readings of a similar vein?
