The Apex Press publishes books to build democracy with equality — without which there can be no real democracy. This perspective shapes our work as an independent small publishing house. Our publishing program has a special focus on economic and social justice and world cultures.
POCLAD is a group of people instigating conversations and actions to contest the authority of corporations to define our culture, govern our nation and plunder the Earth. We work in the tradition of people's struggles to replace illegitimate and tyrannical institutions with democratic ones that disperse rather than concentrate wealth and power.
Some of our books include:
Defying Corporations, Defining Democracy
Gaveling Down the Rabble
The Elite Consensus
