Why You Should Give to Left Eye on Books
The mainstream press doesn’t pay attention to books on the left. “The New Jim Crow,” one of the best selling books from the left in the last ten years, and a work that is reshaping the national discussion about racism, prisons, and the police, never merited a review in The New York Times. Nor is the progressive press much better. How often do you see titles from AK Press reviewed in The Nation?
That’s why Left Eye on Books exists. Over the last two years, we have posted reviews of dozens of works of interest to left wing readers, most published either by university presses or small independents. Through our blog, we have brought attention to many more, as well as providing sober analysis of the evolution of the American left and related concerns.
Now we need your help. We do not sell advertising or get funding from foundations. But we do have costs associated with maintaining our internet presence. Please lend a hand with whatever you can contribute. It will make a big difference, and you will be thanked profusely on our supporters page.
