It’s May Day again, and a very special one at that: today also marks the 50th anniversary of May Day 1968. Turbulent times all across the globe, with landmark events like riots in many US cities after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the protests, revolts and strikes in France, the Prague Spring (without which we probably wouldn’t have The Unbearable Lightness of Being), or even the ensuing demonstrations on Moscow’s Red Square.
To celebrate the occasion, Verso Books is throwing a flash sale, where they offer 50% off of all books on their May Day reading list.
Amazing and important books, including the classic May Day Manifesto 1968 by Raymond Williams or Andrea Komlosy’s brand new and unique volume Work, are up for grabs here, so hurry: the deal ends midnight May 2!
In the meantime, for those less lured by the touch and smell of a print book than by the invaluable contents of one, here’s a beautiful online copy of the Manifesto.
I’ll hear you out now.
