February ZMagazine out now
The February issue of Z Magazine is out now - arriving in our subscribers’ mailboxes, on sale at newsstands / independent booksellers, and also available at our website. We’ve posted a short commentary article from this issue below by regular Z Magazine writer Bruce E. Levine, “Fundamentalist Consumerism and an Insane Society,” which points to the need for “active defiance” of a deadly dogma.
This issue also features other commentary articles on “terror” from Gaza to India, activism articles on a small victory by Food Not Bombs and a big defeat and subsequent organizing surrounding the UN climate conference. There are film reviews of Che and Valkerie, reviews of books about the prison industrial complex, and an author interview on the continuity of racism in U.S. history. There are also feature articles by Noam Chomsky on the elections, Edward S. Herman on NATO, James Petras on the Madoff scandal, and Mina Khanlarzadeh on women and sanctions in Iran.
All articles are available to subscribers and sustainers at the website. Also, some of the current articles (and all of the archived articles) are available to everyone for free at the website. Z Magazine maintains its radical independence through our dedicated fans and readers who allow us to keep publishing the print edition (now in our 22nd year) without corporate distribution, paid advertising, or big foundation backing.
