  • Every Day is Malala Day by Rosemary McCarney with Plan International

    'Dear Malala, we have never met before, but I feel like I know you.' Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration.

  • Workers Play Time

    A collection of plays born from the great struggles of the Trade Union movement. 'Trade union struggles over the years have inspired some of our greatest playwrights. They have also inspired many works of drama that packed a punch in their time but have since been largely – and unjustly – forgotten. This is a rich seam that Workers’ Play Time has only just begun to mine. We hope that these plays will be taken up anew and performed again and again, and we hope that this book will stimulate interest in the rich tradition of progressive, working-class drama.' - Culture Matters 'Reading the plays is a history lesson in itself. Unlike most of mainstream theatre, the plays remind us of the importance of the ordinary person’s desire for justice, and how this really fuels political activity and change in society. It is a reminder of the power of political theatre and how we are all diminished by its scarcity in 2017. I hope this collection will inspire and stir up workers out there…' - Lipstick Socialist Paperback: 240 pages Size: 216mm x 135mm Learn More

  • The Climate Majority by Leo Barasi

    The Climate Majority is not about the climate deniers or the climate activists.
