Reading List

This is going to be a massive, ever increasing list, and it’s going to be divided on random attributes. Although it’ll be a diverse list, one of the things I’m going to highlight frequently is accessibility. What do I mean by that? Simply, easy to read. One of the biggest issues within leftist theory is how much the writing itself prevents people from getting intimate with it, which is unfortunate considering the importance. It is also unfortunate that what I might even deem accessible, still isn’t 100% entirely, but far more easy to read than core books on theory. I believe its important to highlight works that can educate people without intimidation or pretension. It goes without saying, none of what I put here is entirely accurate and everything is subject to critique. I’ll do my best to also connect links to recommendations if there are online copies.

Accessible books on theory:
