Berrett-Koehler has always meant a whole lot more than just business. Now, we're pleased to announce the expansion of our current affairs line of books: BK Currents.
Collectively, BK Currents titles advance social and economic justice by exploring the critical intersections between business and society. Offering a unique combination of thoughtful analysis and progressive alternatives, BK Currents titles promote positive change at the national and global levels.
The need for BK Currents titles has never been so great. As the forces of arrogance, exclusion, and deceit continue their consolidation of power, we seek to provide ordinary citizens with the resources to address problems in a direct, practical way, and to create a world that works for all.
We're excited to offer a broad range of provocative new releases, such as Greg LeRoy's The Great American Jobs Scam
, an expose of tax dodging in the name of "job creation," and Ray Bourhis's Insult to Injury
, a narrative-driven account of a disabled single mother who fought back against a fraudulent insurance provider. And that's just our frontlist.
For over 13 years, Berrett-Koehler has been publishing quality books that offer unconventional solutions to contemporary problems. We have always had a special interest in the problems that challenge society at the national and global levels, as evidenced by our respected backlist, which includes bestselling titles like When Corporations Rule the World
, Alternatives to Economic Globalization
, and Affluenza
. Recently, we're thrilled with the success of John Perkins' Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
, which has ranked in the top 20 on over 20 national and regional bestseller lists (including 9th on the New York Times
Hardcover Nonfiction list) and sold over 125,000 copies since its release in late 2004.
If your readers are interested in creating a just and equitable world, in finding alternatives to corporate globalization, in reversing the consolidation of economic and political power, or in advancing sustainable business practices, then look for BK Currents.
