Black Rose Books

In 1969 we created what may have appeared as impossible in retrospect: a book publishing project. Did we appreciate the difficulties and complexities of starting a non-profit endeavour committed to publishing the kinds of books that were begging to be written, and, published, in a marketplace dominated by commercial publishing? Clearly no. Nevertheless we did it, and more than 500 published books later, continue to do it, publishing intelligent, critical works, appealing to both the general public and the academic world.

Our list of writers has come to include many key authors in the social sciences and humanities, with particular strength in politics, cultural studies, history, philosophy, sociology and environmental and urban issues. Some are of international status, and although we support and encourage many fine first-time authors, we feel fortunate to include such thinkers as Noam Chomsky, Murray Bookchin (January 14, 1921 – July 30, 2006) and George Woodcock, (May 8, 1912 – January 28, 1995) among them. As well, each year we re-issue nearly-forgotten (costly) classics; we are the only publisher (so far as we know), to have published the complete works of Peter Kropotkin.
