"A welcome return to the center stage of political discourse - and action - for the working class, and class consciousness. A must read for everyone that actually takes working class self-determination seriously."Ramsey Kanaan, PM Press
Revolt! is a superb book, and Asimakopoulos knows that the crisis of the times demands nothing short of a complete transformation of capitalism into a socialist alternative. The time has come for a radical transformation of our social universe. The time has come for Revolt!
Dr. Peter McLarenUniversity of California, Los Angeles
"Machine-breakers were once threatened with the death penalty if they took direct action against the systems of production that reduced them to poverty. Kleptocracy capitalism describes a similar juxtaposition: the facilitation of systematic corporate exploitation running alongside policies which criminalise individuals who steal in order to live. John Asimakopoulos' critique draws inspiration from the history of working class activism and, in presenting a clear and accessible analysis of the system's operation, he also calls for direct action to combat it, passionately giving voice to a popular and deeply held view - that the status quo must be challenged."Ruth Ellen Kinna, Editor Anarchist Studies
"The times are ripe for books like Revolt! Where the owning class has nearly succeeded in robbing the world blind in the most recent 'global recession, ' works like Revolt! are crucial for forming effective class consciousness and resistance to political-economic tyranny. Revolt! is a healthy return to informed working class aggression, rather than the limp-spined liberalism that defines the 'left' in U.S. political discourse."
