The Anti-Imperialist Series

The first book in this series, released in September 2004, is entitled Jose Maria Sison: At Home in the World--Portrait of a Revolutionary. It is an impressive collaboration between Professor Sison, the most famous Filipino revolutionary of the twentieth century and himself an award-winning poet, and Ninotchka Rosca, an internationally acclaimed journalist and novelist who has won numerous awards, including the American Book Award.

The series will continue with a reprint of Imperial Washington, by Richard F. Pettigrew, the classic, detailed expose of government corruption and the perils and hypocrisies of imperialist policy, first published in 1922. The first Senator from South Dakota, serving from 1889 to 1901, Pettigrew was the most outspoken political opponent of the emerging United States Empire. Jim Abourezk, the highest elected Arab-American official in the U.S. as a Senator from South Dakota in the 1970s, will provide a contemporary introduction.
