Disaster and Resistance outlines pressing social and political struggles at the dawn of the twenty-first century from post 9-11 New York City, to Israel and Palestine, to Iraq and New Orleans. Fans of Seth's classic works, You Don't Have to do People Over to Survive, and War in the Neighborhood, will see that his punch has not softened as his new work skewers the individuals and institutions reaping havoc across the globe today. In his bold comic style, Seth chronicles events as they happen, musing not on the chaos of instability and fear, but on the struggle against it. Includes an introduction by Mumia Abu-Jamal. This book is a call to action, so listen up.

"I repeatedly tried to get more of Tobocman's work onto our pages, but it was deemed too radical. Tobocman won't compromise his principles for money or fashion." -Jerelle Kraus, former art director at the New York Times
"A graphic revelation, an artistic and political document of enormous value in our troubled world." -Paul Buhle, esteemed historian of American radicalism.
Composting allows you to do something for the part of the Earth you live with day by day: your own back garden. Backyard Composting follows basic values, such as putting things where they belong and not making a mess. Composting at home reduces your personal volume of rubbish, conserves water, increases plant growth, replaces the need for toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and is also fun. While you may not win an 'environmental hero of the year' award, your trees, earthworms, butterflies and other flora and fauna will be grateful for your composting achievements!
Backyard Composting also introduces the various types of composting
bins and accessories, explaining the pros and cons of each type, and
gives instructions for building one from scrap materials.
