Eye-opening. Lots of details.

Excellent look at the Rojava revolution from Janet Biehl, biographer and partner of Murray Bookchin. I can't recommend this enough. It is of course a graphic book, and non-fiction, so no surprises there.
A really good overview. As I understand it, Janet B. had ongoing contacts with the movement and visited N.E. Syria a bunch of times. Ocalan's ideas are discussed of course and the story of the battles against the Islamic State is mentioned. An Inspiring and Hopeful Account of the human achievements of A.A.N.E.S. /Revolutionary Rojava and life over there. Several towns and areas are profiled and she spoke to a good variety of folks there.
This book came due at the Library & I had to return it before finishing. The next member had reserved it & it was time. A pity since I had began writing a review for hopeful publication in the Anarchist Review of Books (Fifthestate.org) or someplace. If anybody has any insights or reactions to this one, I'm all ears. (Not a Spoiler Alert but..) Obvious reference points include Hakim Bey/Peter Lamborn Wilson's book on Piracy which was published by Autonomedia a few years back. That one is titled "Pirate Utopias: Moorish Crsairs & European Renegadoes"
I ordered this book through a local store affiliated with bookshop.org and no confirmation was received, nor any other communication. I recently went to a author appearance and book signing sponsored by the same store, but we had to leave after a little more than an hour, so didn't have time to ask what happened. Wish I had ordered directly from PM press instead. Just glancing at the e- book at the moment, on loan from Internet Archive.
