We Have Not Been Moved by Matt Meyer (Editor); Elizabeth Belita Martinez (Editor)Produced in collaboration with the War Resisters League, We Have Not Been Moved is a compendium addressing the two leading pillars of US Empire. Inspired by the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who called for a 'true revolution of values' against the racism, militarism and materialism which he saw as the heart of a society 'approaching spiritual death', this book examines the strategic and tactical possibilities of radical transformation through revolutionary nonviolence.

The Color of Law by Richard RothsteinWidely heralded as a "masterful" (Washington Post) and "essential" (Slate) history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein's The Color of Law offers "the most forceful argument ever published on how federal, state, and local governments gave rise to and reinforced neighborhood segregation" (William Julius Wilson). Exploding the myth of de facto segregation arising from private prejudice or the unintended consequences of economic forces, Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully segregated previously mixed communities; subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs; tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation; and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods. A groundbreaking, "virtually indispensable" study that has already transformed our understanding of twentieth-century urban history (Chicago Daily Observer), The Color of Law forces us to face the obligation to remedy our unconstitutional past.
