About Us

Revolution Books is a place where people meet the revolution.

Scientific and poetic, wrangling and visionary – Revolution Books is alive with a defiant spirit that refuses to accept that the horrors of today's world have to be. People come to the store from all over to find the people and deep engagement about the possibility of a radically different way the world could be.

At the heart of Revolution Books is the cutting-edge work of Bob Avakian, whose new synthesis of communism envisions a radically new society that is overcoming all of the oppression of the current world while giving great scope to intellectual work, ferment, and dissent as integral to the complete emancipation of humanity.

Revolution Books has a collection of books on history and political theory, novels and poetry, atheism and science, world geopolitics and philosophy, as well as literature and books in Spanish. Check out the weekly discussions, author readings and film screenings.

Come browse the shelves, sit and read, or discuss the burning issues of our time. At Revolution Books you can meet the movement that is changing the world.

The DVD Revolution: Why It's Possible, Why It's Necessary and What It's All About is getting into people's hands - and a movement of showings is beginning. Read more...
