"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." Like all of Steve Biko's writings, those words testify to the passion, courage, and keen insight that made him one of the most powerful figures in South Africa's struggle against apartheid. They also reflect his conviction that black people in South Africa could not be liberated until they united to break their chains of servitude, a key tenet of the Black Consciousness movement that he helped found. I Write What I Like contains a selection of Biko's writings from 1969, when he became the president of the South African Students' Organization, to 1972, when he was prohibited from publishing. The collection also includes a preface by Archbishop Desmond Tutu; an introduction by Malusi and Thoko Mpumlwana, who were both involved with Biko in the Black Consciousness movement; a memoir of Biko by Father Aelred Stubbs, his longtime pastor and friend; and a new foreword by Professor Lewis Gordon. Biko's writings will inspire and educate anyone concerned with issues of racism, postcolonialism, and black nationalism.

The work of Paul Chan has charted a course in contemporary art as unpredictable and wide-ranging as the thinking that grounds his praxis.Paul Chan: Selected Writings 2000 - 2014 collects never before published lectures and language-based works as well as the critical essays and artist's texts that first appeared in Artforum, October and Frieze, among others.Chan's writings revel in the paradoxes that make the experience of art both vexing and pleasurable, from the comedy of artistic freedom in Duchamp to the contradictions that bind aesthetics and politics.By reflecting on artists as Henry Darger, Chris Marker or Sigmar Polke and grappling with writers and thinkers who have played a decisive role in his practice (Adorno, Becket, deSade) he lays bare the ideas and personalities that motivate his work.

Epictetus, a Greek stoic and freed slave, ran a thriving philosophy school in Nicropolis in the early second century AD. His animated discussions were celebrated for their rhetorical wizardry and were written down by Arrian, his most famous pupil. Together with the Enchiridion, a manual of his main ideas, and the fragments collected here, The Discourses argue that happiness lies in learning to perceive exactly what is in our power to change and what is not, and in embracing our fate to live in harmony with god and nature. In this personal, practical guide to the ethics of stoicism and moral self-improvement, Epictetus tackles questions of freedom and imprisonment, illness and fear, family, friendship and love, and leaves an intriguing document of daily life in the classical world.

Artist Carroll Dunham (b. 1949) is one of the most acclaimed and innovative painters of his generation. But he is also an astute writer who has engaged with a wide variety of artists in the form of reviews, catalog essays, and interviews. Collected here for the first time, Into Words reveals the true depth of Dunham's writing. From reviews of Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns to a gonzo Peter Saul interview, to an appreciation of Kara Walker's films and reflections on his own practice, Dunham writes about what is made and why it matters with real wit and candor. Into Words is an invaluable reader for anyone interested in contemporary art and culture. With an introduction by Scott Rothkopf, chief curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and a publisher's foreword by Paul Chan.
