Zed Books

Zed publishes across a wide range of topics, with writers from across the planet featuring in its line up. It is best known for publishing the work of marginalised individuals and groups, many of them originating in the Global South, others from oppressed elements of ‘Western’ society.

Some of Zed’s most well-known authors include Assata Shakur, founding member of the Black Liberation Army, the Black Panthers and the first woman to make the FBI’s top-ten most wanted terrorist list; Egypt’s foremost woman writer Nawal el Sadaawi; Vandana Shiva, the ‘world’s most prominent radical scientist’; world renowned Asia commentator and true-crime writer Paul French; and Yanis Varoufakis, ex-Finance Minister of Greece and ‘the rock star of Europe’s anti-austerity uprising’, as well as hundreds of internationally respected academics and journalists.

Zed publishes a wide range of intelligent non-fiction for an international audience of thoughtful and engaged readers. It is perhaps best known for its global current affairs and global politics lists, as well as its books on gender and sexualities. Its award-winning scholarly output reaches across a range of subjects within the arts, humanities and social sciences.
