The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey is a new book by Laila El-Haddad and Maggie Schmitt. Part cookbook, part political analysis, part history, The Gaza Kitchen is a book unlike any other.
Hannah Dobbz "Nine-Tenths of the Law"

Last weekend, Hannah Dobbz came to Baltimore and spoke at Red Emma's about her new book, Nine-Tenths of the Law: Property and Resistance in the United States. Published by AK Press, Nine-Tenths of the Law is about the history of squatting in the US, and offers new perspectives on property in the midst of the foreclosure crisis and recession.

Social movements are emotionally charged. All politics are. Whether one is campaigning door to door for a candidate or rioting in the streets, there are emotional undercurrents beneath every political action. The way those feelings inform what activists do, how they organize, how they sustain themselves, how they come into or leave movements, has not been explored enough in popular discussion of social movements.

Lisbeth Salander

In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, author Stiegg Larson introduces us to the twenty-first century's first great traumatized protagonist, Lisbeth Salander. Called the “perfect victim” by one of her friends, she is a private investigator who faces all kinds of abuse from men in her life, men who hate women in general and her in particular. At a young age, she watched her father regularly and viciously abuse her mother.

On Monday, January 24, two dozen Baltimore residents gathered outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse on St. Paul Street.
