Radical browsing list


Groundwork Books is unique to San Diego in that it is the only cooperatively run, worker collective and volunteer staffed bookshop stocking people's history, socialist theory, and shelves upon shelves of radical books.

Similar rad book shops, organized against hierarchy exist sprinkled around the map. Below is a list of a few we know of. Let us know if were missing any. (groundworkbookscollective@yahoo.com)
