Written by long-time activists of the Kurdish freedom movement, this book is the first authentic insight into the complex dimensions of Rojava s radical revolution. From autonomous women's communes to ecological cooperatives to multiethnic peoples self-defense, the authors let us enter a world of freedom cries - a deeply human grassroots revolution with the potential to change the course of Middle Eastern civilization. Recommended for all believers in humanity. --Dilar Dirik, author and activist of the Kurdish Women's Movement

The Kurdish revolution of Democratic Autonomy is of enormous importance for the future of the world. It points a possible way forward out of the tragedy of the Middle East, and more than that: a possible way forward out of the catastrophe that is capitalism. This book is of great help... A careful and detailed account that is filled with personal narrative, it is both easily accessible and very informative. --John Holloway, Professor of Sociology, Autonomous University of Puebla, author of Crack Capitalism (Pluto, 2010)
