New York, 1989: as a decade of activism around the urban housing
crisis and beyond comes to a close, legendary graphic artist Seth
Tobocman is there to document it all in his bold comic style.
"You Don't Have to Fuck People Over to Survive" collects many of
Tobocman's most enduring images in a powerhouse assemblage that
cuts right to the heart of 1980s activism. All the high (and low)
points are there: the imprisonment of Mumia Abu-Jamal; the rise of
Reaganomics; the struggle against apartheid; the Miami Race Riots;
and, of course, the turf wars that dominated the city of New York,
as activists and low-income families alike demanded their rights to
the city's abandoned buildings.
It's a candid portrait of a decade of struggle to preserve basic
human rights and build a better world. Available now in a brand new
twentieth-anniversary edition from AK Press, "You Don't Have to
Fuck People Over to Survive" is a critical historical artifact and
a phenomenal read, sure to appeal to a new generation of activists
ready to demand the right to the city, and worthy of a place on the
shelf of every historian of urban struggle.
Seth Tobocman is an author, artist, and educator living in New
York City. Perhaps best known as the co-founder and editor of the
comic journal "World War 3 Illustrated," Tobocman's bold graphics
have been immortalized in exhibitions, in the pages of "The New
York Times," and on the sides of buildings around the globe.
