Never forget that “radical publisher” Verso books threatened legal action to prevent people from accessing PDFs of their copyrighted material, and as a result thousands of critical theory texts once aggregated on aaaarg are now much harder to find.
Never buy another Verso book. Find them on the next incarnation of aaaarg or just shoplift them. Heckle their PR gurus when they host lectures.
