Critique Influence Change

Critique Influence Change is published by Zed Books

Critique confronts the world. Without dogma, without new principles, it refuses to conform and instead demands insurrection of thought. Influence is a step from critique toward the future, when effects begin to be felt, when them ground becomes unstable, when a movement ignites. Change is when the structures shift. The books in this series – carefully curated re-issues of landmark Zed titles from our forty-year history – take critique as their starting point and as such have influenced politics, their respective disciplines and thought the world over.
