  • Publishers’ Statement on Trump Visit to World Economic Forum

    As publishers of books that seek to explain how we arrived at this perilous moment — and how we can overcome it — we want to express our solidarity with all of those in Davos, Switzerland, and beyond, who are confronting the clear and present danger Trump presents to the world.

  • The Stop Trump Reading List: One Year On

    Our slogan at Haymarket Books is "Books for Changing the World." In that spirit, we've created a new reading list to help build the resistance to Trump one year on from his inauguration.
