No. 0008 of the PM Press Pamphlet Series
Radicals, feminists, environmentalists. Activists for animal rights, human rights, civil rights. There are plenty of rebels and dissidents putting their asses on the line. Conversely, there's never been a shortage of reactionaries seeking to repress such vision and passion.

Learning how to fight and/or defend yourself is not the same as promoting belligerent, anti-social behavior. While talk of non-violence is understandable and the struggle for peace has never been more essential, let's face it: The odds are that sooner or later you're going to end up in a confrontation that may escalate into physical violence. So, why not be prepared?

Self-Defense for Radicals will get you off and running in the right direction. From eye gouges to groin punches--you'll find a powerful collection of tactics with which we can fight back. Interspersed with words of wisdom and guidance from Emma Goldman, Bruce Lee, Angela Davis, and even Patrick Swayze, this pocket-sized pamphlet will inspire readers to not only speak truth to power but also deliver a sharp elbow to power's jutting jaw.

Presented in the street-smart style we've come to expect from Mickey Z., Self-Defense for Radicals dares you to re-examine what we perceive as acceptable behavior--both by the oppressors and the revolutionaries.

 

Reviews:

"This small book packs a powerful punch. It will help you prepare emotionally and physically to fight back. Read it, read it again, and then practice. As Mickey Z. says, 'The life you save may be your own'." --Derrick Jensen

 

"Mickey Z. shows you how to use your head. Literally! An invaluable guide for those moments when violence must be countered by force."--pattrice jones, author of Aftershock: Confronting Trauma in a Violent World

"In this violent culture, Self-Defense for Radicals belongs on every coffee table and in the glove compartment of every car driven by a man or a woman." --Rosemarie Jackowski, peace activist, advocacy journalist, Vermont Attorney General candidate '06 and '08

About the Author:

The regular visitors to Mickey Z's website have ordained themselves "The Expendables." Mickey asked them to write a collective bio and here is the result:

Mickey Z's voice is the roundhouse kick of activist literature...profoundly mistrustful of government in all its dreadful guises, while courageously supporting all of us who stand against it. Determined to live the words, rather than simply to speak them, Mickey Z. doesn't get more readers, he just makes more friends. His blog is like a front stoop where we all gather to talk over the news, what's happening with each other, and generally enjoy each other's company. The gentle concern for his fellow humans and the behind-the-scenes acts of kindness are surpassed only by the cuteness of his dimples.

He can be found on the Web at: www.mickeyz.net
