Holiday Gift Guide 2018: For the Revolutionary

If ever there were a time to give books on protest and resistance, now is it. Whether you're looking back at Jill Freedman's photographs of Resurrection City, the grand finale of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Poor People's Campaign in 1968; studying Theo Deutinger's graphic illustrations of global tyranny; or looking at the history of visual resistance in Lars Müller's "Protest: The Aesthetics of Resistance," these are great gifts for those who continue to resist and revolt.

Dimensions of Citizenship
Profiled in Steven Heller's Print magazine column, this "timely and significant" book documenting contributions from the seven firms selected to represent the United States in the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale was also first on Inc.com's "19 Books Everyone Who Wants to Succeed Should Read," where Christina DesMarais writes, "Dimensions of Citizenship is a colorful, digestible guide to the late 21st century and the role that architects play or don't play in shaping our collective understanding of citizenship. Connecting theory with social, ecological, and aesthetic concerns, [this book] maps the social dimensions of indifference across people and cultures making it a compelling read for any entrepreneur or business leader who is passionate about instilling ethics and values into their work."

Protest: The Aesthetics of Resistance
From the South in the 1930s to Tahrir Square today, Protest examines how art and the image have been used by protest movements to whittle down the powers that be. Kirkus writes, "This comprehensive, smart analysis of the art of protest features art designed to rattle politicians’ or consumers’ nerves but also memorable photography of protests." Drawing on writers across the world and across disciplines, Protest offers a contemporary and comprehensive analysis of the "Aesthetics of Resistance," or as The New York Times sums it up: "this survey of the visual slogans that have been used as tools for social change over the last half-century reveals how blurred is the line between politics and poetics, art and life." Included in the Kirkus and Vulture Holiday Gift Guides.

Jill Freedman: Resurrection City, 1968
This 50th-anniversary edition of Jill Freedman’s 1970 photo book documenting the climax of Dr. Martin Luther King's 1968 Poor People's Campaign—set in Resurrection City, a six-week, 3,000-person protest encampment on the Washington Mall—is "a masterpiece," according to Kirkus. "Her black-and-white prints are honest and stirring portraits of the ordinary people at the heart of this historic uprising," Rebecca Bengal writes in Vulture. "The reissue is timely. Inequity is starker than ever." —Holland Cotter, The New York Times.

Handbook of Tyranny
The engine of this book is the idea that the subtle design of modern bureaucratic structures has built tyranny into our surroundings, that this structuring was not accidental, and that it continues to grow. In protest, Theo Deutinger's austere monochromatic infographics dissect tyranny's designs. Every page of this book questions our current world of walls and fences, police tactics and prison cells, crowd control and refugee camps. Bookforum praises Deutinger's "highly sophisticated and thoughtful design."
