Pluto Press is a radical political publishing house. Founded in 1969, we are one of the West’s oldest radical publishers, but our focus remains making timely interventions in contemporary struggles.
Though our collective outlook has developed over time, we proudly identify as anti-capitalist, internationalist and politically independent.
We publish many books on labor and working class politics and history. Central to this is the groundbreaking ‘Wildcat’ series, featuring books on Amazon workers, organizing in the Global South, workers’ inquiry, the contingent faculty movement and much more.
Our books are distributed worldwide and you can browse and purchase them from our website www.plutobooks.com.
We are delighted to offer LAWCHA attendees 40% off all our books. To claim the discount, please enter the coupon code ‘LAWCHA40’ at the checkout.

PM Press is an independent, radical publisher of books and media to educate, entertain, and inspire. Founded in 2007 by a small group of people with decades of publishing, media, and organizing experience, PM Press amplifies the voices of radical authors, artists, and activists. Our aim is to deliver bold political ideas and vital stories to all walks of life and arm the dreamers to demand the impossible. We have sold millions of copies of our books, most often one at a time, face to face. We’re old enough to know what we’re doing and young enough to know what’s at stake. Join us to create a better world. pmpress.org
