(Feminist Press, 2011; 256pp; £17.99)

Over the past 13 years the American artist Josh MacPhee has commissioned over 100 posters celebrating revolution, racial justice, women's rights, queer liberation, peace activism and labour struggles. Collected here in one volume – and stretching from the Diggers’ 1649 occupation of George’s Hill to contemporary actions against the arms trade – these images, as Rebecca Solnit notes in her foreword, “cohere into the radical past on which a radical future can be built.”
