Resistance Books is a non-profit, progressive book publisher and distributor. While an independent organisation, Resistance Books is broadly supportive of the left unity perspectives of the Socialist Alliance; its affiliate, the socialist youth organisation Resistance; and the newspaper Green Left Weekly.
Resistance Books is Australia’s leading publisher of Marxist and socialist literature. It specialises in books and pamphlets of interest to the antiracist, environmental, feminist, international solidarity, labour, socialist and general progressive movements. We believe that in the fight for social justice activists need not only information but a scientific theory.
Resistance Books aims to publish both a range of the classic works of Marxism and socialism as well as titles dealing with contemporary issues from a radical perspective, all in cheap and accessible editions. Currently we have 90 titles in print, roughly half books and the remainder pamphlets. Our Resistance Marxist Library series now stands at 20 titles. All this is a very considerable effort for a small left-wing publisher. We depend on the generosity of our supporters. If you would like to make a donation to help support our publishing work, contact us at Resistance Books.
