From an account of daily life in North Korea to a study of the politics of abjection of British citizenship, Zed is committed to publishing intelligent non-fiction for an international audience of thoughtful and engaged readers. That’s why we’ve put up hundreds of extracts from our recent books and bestsellers online as part of our new website.
Zed is the world’s largest publishing collective, the company is owned and managed by its workers. We publish content critical of oppressive power structures and regimes – content that changes readers’ thinking. We are perhaps best known for our global current affairs and global politics lists, our books on gender and sexualities, as well as our award-winning scholarly output which reaches across a range of subjects within the arts, humanities and social sciences.
We try to keep our books as affordable as possible, and will run regular sales and promotional offers through this website for the same reason: so that our ground-breaking content remains open and accessible to all. To further encourage the sharing of information and knowledge, ebooks purchased from this website are DRM-free.
