    Dark Money

    Investigative journalist Jane Mayer plunges into the dark web of billionaires—like the Koch brothers—who have bankrolled a systematic plan to fundamentally alter the American political system. She emerges with a terrifying portrait of a new ruling class of oligarchs who are dismantling our democracy one think tank, courthouse, and government agency at a time. After the election, Mayer wrote a new preface to the book that illustrates how Donald Trump’s win was a huge victory for the wealthy ideologues who are shaping the fate of America.

    We Should All Be Feminists

    This chapbook-length manifesto is a book that can be read in one sitting but remains with you long afterward. Adichie, author of the exquisite novel Americanah, offers readers a definition of feminism for the 21st century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, We Should All Be Feminists explores what it means to be a woman now, and is a rallying cry for gender equality.

    Can We All Be Feminists?

    With a title that responds to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s argument in We Should All Be Feminists, the authors of these 17 essays grapple with the questions raised by intersectional feminism. Why do some women feel they can’t identify with the contemporary feminist movement? Why does intersectionality matter? And what could intersectional feminism look like for contemporary women? Essays by Brit Bennett, Soofiya Andry, Emer O’Toole, and many more come together in a radical anthology for 21st century feminists.
