The Radical Essentials Pamphlet Series [REPS]
Founding Editor: Yusef Progler
The Radical Essentials Pamphlet Series brings readers a collection
of reprinted book chapters, essays and lectures that are necessary for
envisioning life beyond the hegemonic grip of Western modernity, its
knowledge traditions and its socio-economic systems. Emphasizing influential
and ground-breaking works that have grown out of socio-political struggles,
the pamphlets feature maverick thinkers operating within the Western
intellectual tradition and Third World thinkers developing their own
intellectual traditions. The focus of the series is on action-oriented
critical analysis about a variety of contemporary topics, including
the environment, colonialism, consumerism, technology, health and education.
