New [email protected] Book Donation Program

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new [email protected] Book Donation Program that will distribute free [email protected] books to libraries, schools, co-ops, prisons, and more! 

We are proud of our books but know that not everyone is able to purchase them. This new program will increase access to our ideas and vision for a better future based on workplace democracy regardless of peoples’ income or circumstance.

If you know an organization that would be interested in requesting books, share this post with them, or point them to our [email protected] Book Donation Program page on our website.


This program’s aim is to make our books available to as many people as possible and to communities who need it most, so we will be selecting organizations to donate to based on these factors. This program is not for individuals in need of books for their own purposes. 

Applications are now open for donations of print and electronic books from the [email protected] library, including:

  • Understanding Marxism by Richard Wolff
    Americans today confront serious questions and evidence that our capitalist system is in trouble and that it clearly serves the 1% far better than the vast mass of the people. We offer this introductory book now because of the power and usefulness today of Marx’s criticism of the capitalist economic system.

  • Understanding Socialism by Richard Wolff
    Understanding Socialism tackles the taboos and unveils the often hidden histories of socialism, but most importantly it offers a way forward: a socialism built on democracy in the workplace. A blend of history, analysis and opinion, Understanding Socialism is an honest and approachable text that knocks down false narratives, confronts failures, and offers a path to a new socialism based on workplace democracy.

  • The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself by Richard Wolff
    In this unique collection of over 50 essays, Wolff argues that "returning to normal" after COVID’s arrival, the resulting economic crash and political uprisings of 2020  is no longer an adequate response to the accumulated problems of US capitalism. What is necessary, instead, is transition toward a new economic system that works for all of us.

  • Stuck Nation: Can the United States Change Course on Our History of Choosing Profits Over People? by Bob Hennelly
    Stuck Nation a reflection & reckoning with American capitalism through the stories of movers & changers across the country. Award-winning journalist Hennelly shares his observations on the origins of our national stuck-ness, his reporting on how it endures, and his analysis of what might be required for us to change the course of our historical patterns, so that America can begin putting the wellbeing of its people ahead of its profits. 

We cannot provide audiobooks at this time.
