Larkmead Press features fiercely independent voices in fiction and nonfiction. We are committed to bringing challenging analyses, evocative prose and poetry, and engaging literature to wider audiences. |
We are proud to be releasing Globalization and the Demolition of Society by Dennis Loo. (Loo's last book was published by Seven Stories Press in 2006: Impeach the President: the Case Against Bush and Cheney.) It is an inspiring, meticulously evidenced and closely argued book that is extremely rich and complex, yet exceedingly accessible. As three advance reviewers note of this book:
“A brilliant exposition… compelling written and readily grasped, yet profound in its synthetic treatment . . . . Loo’s analysis of the inherent, self-reinforcing logic of neoliberalism and the ‘War on Terror’ . . . is a potential game changer.” – Sharon Araji, 2011 President, Pacific Sociological Association, Professor of Sociology, University of Colorado, Denver
“[A]n adventure in cognitive rebellion.” – Peter Phillips, Professor of Sociology, Sonoma State University, President, Media Freedom Foundation/Project Censored
The front and back covers for Loo's new book can be found under Featured Title. Examination copies (for course adoptions) and advanced review copies (for individuals and reviewers) are available now. Official release will be this summer.
For 2012 we have three titles forthcoming: a stirring critique of the neoliberal assault on education, a compelling and heart-rending short story collection and a gorgeous book of photographs.
We believe that authors deserve a better royalty for their work and will work with you to try to make this happen. We welcome quality submissions. See our Contact Us page.
