      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

There is an increasing number of books about anarchism
being published every year. As anarchism grows in
popularity more anarchist organisations are able to
produce books, and mainstream commercial publishers
certainly see this growing popularity as a way of making
extra cash.

However, not a lot of people will want to spend 15 or 20
euro on an anarchist book unless they are already
interested in the politics. In short supply have been the
cheap pamphlets that allow you to check out anarchist
ideas without spending the equivalent of two or three
hours pay.

The South African anarchists who run Zabalaza Books
have been busy doing their bit to fill this gap. Their
website [www.zabalaza.net] has free pdf versions of over
100 anarchist pamphlets ready to print out if you have a
computer and printer.

For those without the necessary equipment (and that's
probably about 75% of us), some of them are now
available in Ireland:

anarchists, this gives an overview of class, direct action,
private property, the state, trade unions, democracy,
