Contemporary culture has eliminated the concept and public figure of the intellectual. A cretinous anti-intellectualism presides, cheerled by hacks in the pay of multinational corporations who reassure their bored readers that there is no need to rouse themselves from their stupor. Zer0 Books knows that another kind of discourse - intellectual without being academic, popular without being populist - is not only possible: it is already flourishing. Zer0 is convinced that in the unthinking, blandly consensual culture in which we live, critical and engaged theoretical reflection is more important than ever before.
This North American contingent of Zer0 Books is the logical outcome of a thriving discourse, one that is flourishing around the dauntless critique and incisive analysis of contemporary culture. A growing body of writers and thinkers from "across the pond," Zer0 Books North America is dedicated to advancing Zer0's credo:
"Dare to think!"
