No one needs the first amendment to write about how cute newborn babies are or to publish a recipe for strawberry shortcake. The first amendment was not intended for innocuous ideas or popular points of view. We at Barricade Books are committed to protecting the rights of serious authors to express even the most unpopular, outrageous and offensive ideas. Only then is total freedom of expression guaranteed.

It is our hope that the books contained on this site hold something for everyone. It continues our tradition of publishing quality non-fiction, with a frontlist full of unique titles and a strong-selling backlist.

Every time you buy a Barricade Books title, you do not just buy a book. You contribute to our struggle to support and strengthen the First Amendment.

Many Thanks,

The Barricade Books Staff
