Hello and welcome to the AAP website!
In 2016, all we published on this site was the text "Revolution Is More Than a Word: 23 Theses on Anarchism". Luckily, it was received with interest and is now available as a pamphlet from Kersplebedeb and a pocket book from Active Distribution. A German translation is up as well and available as a pamphlet from Black Mosquito.
For 2017, we are more ambitious, trying to publish at least four blocks of reviews. Here, we proudly present the first! We have four reviews of books dealing explicitly with anarchism: in English, Andrew Cornell's Unruly Equality: U.S. Anarchism in the 20th Century, and Matthew Wilson's Rules Without Rulers: The Possibilities and Limits of Anarchism; in German, Robert Sommer's Poesie und Disziplin. Dieter Schrage und der unterirdische Strom der Anarchie, and Robert Foltin's novels Herbst 1918: ein Anfang and Die Rote Garde in Wien. We have two reviews of books dealing with the ongoing divide between the Global North and the Global South, reminding us that antiimperialist politics remain crucial in anticapitalist struggle: John Smith's Imperialism in the Twenty-First Century: Globalization, Super-Exploitation, and Capitalism's Final Crisis, and Immanuel Ness's Southern Insurgency: The Coming of the Global Working Class. Finally, we have read two books of relevance for leftist activists of all stripes: in English, Umair Muhammad's Confronting Injustice: Social Activism in the Age of Individualism, and, in German, the anthology Alle Verhältnisse umzuwerfen... Gespräche und Interventionen zu Krise, globaler Bewegung und linker Geschichte, edited by Ernest Kaltenegger, Leo Kühberger, and Samuel Stuhlpfarrer.
We hope to have a second block up sometime during the spring. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, you are always welcome to browse our archive, which includes some of our pamphlets as well as essays, reviews, interviews, and short stories. Additional material, such as guest contributions, can be found under Miscellaneous.

AAP was founded in the year 2000 and released thirty pamphlets before focusing on online publishing in 2007. To get in touch, please drop us a line at aap[at]alpineanarchist[dot]org.
The DIY aspect of AAP was not lost when we decided on an online presence. We knew nothing about websites and hence the result was not entirely satisfying. For example, printing from the site can be an adventure, so please check your settings before you give it a go. Thanks for being generous!
