AK Press proudly report that their new book We Are An Image From the Future: The Greek Revolt of December 2008 has raised the eyebrows of right wing talk show host Glenn Beck, who denounced it (3 May) on his FOX TV show. On his show, Beck held up We Are An Image From the Future side-by-side with the book The Coming Insurrection, a title he has inadvertently helped propel to national bestseller status by attacking it on the air as “quite possibly the most evil thing I’ve ever read.”
“You don’t want to think that they even exist, but they do,” Beck says of the authors of both books, whom he calls “Communist revolutionaries” who are “not anarchists, but they will use anarchy.” (He seems to have entirely missed the fact that the contributors to We Are An Image From the Future—as well as other participants in the Greek revolts described in the book—are actually anarchists.)
Thanks to Beck’s anti-endorsement, AK expect quite a buzz around We Are An Image From the Future in the days to come. It is available to ship immediately from AK Press Distribution and other major wholesalers.
We Are an Image From the Future: The Greek Revolt of December 2008

What causes a city, then a whole country, to explode? How did one neighborhood’s outrage over the tragic death of one teenager transform itself into a generalized insurrection against State and capital, paralyzing an entire nation for a month? We Are an Image From the Future delves into the December insurrection and its aftermath through interviews with those who witnessed and participated in it, alongside the communiqués and texts that circulated through the networks of revolt. What emerges is not just the intensity of the riots, but the stories of organizing and solidarity, the questions of strategy and tactics: a desperately needed examination of the fabric of the Greek movements that made December possible.
